THE EDITOR, Sir:
I've always liked Tessanne Chin, but it never really occurred to me that she was a great singer. Unlike many Jamaicans who were very fascinated by her, I have to admit that I was never wowed by her performance.
So there I was waiting for this the moment when Tessanne would, on the United States talent show, 'The Voice', convince me that she was all that. And, yes, she did! When I listened to her rendition of Bob Marley's Redemption Song, chills went up and down my spine and I said to myself, "Where did this lady get such a powerful voice"? Then I listened to her previous performance and I was stunned. It was as though she was telling me she's good!
Tessanne Chin is a true ambassador for Jamaica. She has represented us well and has given us something to smile about and to look forward to week after week. I do believe she has what it takes to win the competition (keep the voting going). And even if she doesn't, I want to say thank you Tessanne for giving Jamaica a chance to shine!!
