News Americas, QUEENS, NY, Sat. Mar. 15, 2014: The Jamaican-born winner of NBC’s musical reality show season five, ‘The Voice,’ is set for perform this Memorial Day weekend in New York City.

Fresh from her White House performance, Tessanne Chin, is set to perform at the first Oracabessa Festival – ‘A Celebration Of Caribbean Culture’ this May 26, 2014 at the Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York.

“We are just thrilled to have the opportunity to present Tessanne to her fans in her very first, full length performance in the tri-state area,” said event organizer Bobby Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam radio.

Chin’s appearance on The Voice mobilized the Jamaican and Caribbean Diaspora like never before, with thousands voting week after week until the Jamaican singer was named “The Voice.”

Other performers at the Oracabessa Festival will include Beenie Man, Konshens and Assassin.

Her last performance in the US was on March 6th at the White House as part of the “White House: Women of Soul” concert. There she delivered a scintillating performance of the Donna Summer classic ‘Last Dance’.

The program, which will be broadcast April 7th on PBS, included performances by Melissa Etheridge, Aretha Franklin, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe, and Jill Scott. Chin is set to release her debut album later this year and is currently in the studio working on it.
