News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Mon. Oct. 28, 2013: Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin has sailed on to the Live Rounds of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ after winning the Knock Out rounds Monday night.

Chin, dressed in a chic black lace top with black leggings, took Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” and made it her own, compelling coach Adam Levine to give her a standing ovation.

Ashley DuBose’s “Soul Sister” was no match for Chin whose performance was a perfect combination of high and controlled low notes.

Coach Christina Aguillera was full of praise for Chin while Ceelo Green said she has “a lioness quality with command of the stage.”

Her coach Levine insisted he had to “pick the person who is strong now and can win this.”

Chin moves on the live rounds next week.

“I’m super excited. I can’t wait,” she said.

Chin sang back-up for three years for reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, but eventually broke out as a solo artist in Jamaica. She became known as a reggae fusion recording artist, best known for her hit singles “Hideaway” and “Messenger.” “Hideaway” was featured on VP Records’ Reggae Gold 2007. And she has opened for famous acts such as Patti Labelle, Peabo Bryson and Gladys Knight.

Now she’s hoping to make musical waves globally.
