THE EDITOR, Sir:

And it came to past in the year of the Lord 2013, when the Lord looked at His people in Jamaica and saw their suffering, He said to Himself, "What can I give them to take their minds off their problems?"

The Lord then sent His prophet Shaggy to the fair maiden Tessanne Chin. Go ye to the land of Uncle Sam and enter 'The Voice' competition for I have prepared the way for you to unite your people far and wide.

And behold Tessanne's Try at the blind audition caused the coaches to squabble. But the Lord was with her and He guided her to the man with the name of the one in Eden. God said, "The first shall be the last, and the last shall be the first on that fateful night."

Tessanne was filled with wonder but she humbled herself. She crossed Many Rivers, became Stronger as she went on the Bridge over Troubled Waters. But God was Next to Her. Though she had Nothing, she sang Redemption Songs. God gave her His Kind of Love so that she could love her competitors Unconditionally. And even though she wanted to Let It Be, she remained humble Underneath It All.

Tessanne wondered If she was the woman that God should use to unite her people. But her people felt the pull. They rallied around her. Tweets encouraged her. They ate only bread and butter so they could find the United States dollar for iTunes. They used social media to galvanise the troops, kept watch on voting nights, and carried her to the end of her journey.

On that fateful night, the people turned out in their numbers at LA in Half-Way Tree, they gathered in homes, shops, bars and street corners glued to the one with broadcasting rights of 'The Voice' for the culmination. Behold the predestined moment arrived and the winner of 'The Voice' 2013 is ...

Tessanne Chin!

The Lord has spoken. Let us live in peace and harmony and celebrate with our great ambassador!
