News Americas, Los Angeles, Mon. Nov. 11, 2013: Voice coach Adam Levine had high praise for Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin Monday night, comparing her voice to the late Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera.
Levine said the singer’s talent is “Grammy worthy” while pushing her to deliver on the mike performance on Emeli Sandé’s “My Kind Of Love.”
And delivered she did, singing a powerful yet emotionally vulnerable rendition that she dedicated to her husband of two years who was in the audience.
“It was good … a lot of passion. Your voice is so amazing and rich. It was lovely, really, really wonderful,” said coach Christina Aguilera.
“I said it before and I’ll say it again… every single time we get here this woman sings in a way that is emotional and flawless. It blows my mind. I’m enjoying listening to you sing and watching you grow,” said Chin’s coach Levine.
“This competition is The Voice and you have it in spades,” he added.
Chin’s performance sent Jamaican and Caribbean fans on social media into a frenzy, mobilizing each other to vote while lauding the singer.
Fans can vote for Chin by voting by calling 1877 5 Keep 09 or by downloading her song on iTunes/the voice.
Meanwhile, Usain Bolt was among those tweeting support for Chin and urging his followers to vote. “My peeps ensure you vote tonight for @Tessanne as she competes as top 12 in @NBCTheVoice”,” wrote the sprinter.
