About the artist:

Upon her return to Jamaica, Chin joined the Jamaican rock band Mile High and performed for crowds at many local venues including Jazzfest, Rockfest, and RETV Unplugged. Their style, rock reggae, was unique. After going on tour for three years with Jimmy Cliff as a back-up singer, she decided to launch her solo career. After Tessanne left Mile High, she started writing songs for her debut CD. Rudy Valentino and Paul Kastick are her producers. Her debut single, “Hideaway”, received heavy rotation on Jamaican radio and select stations in New York. Both the single and its music video were very popular. The song was also featured on VP Records’ Reggae Gold 2007. After “Hideaway”, she has released two more singles, “Messenger” and “Black Books”, both available online on her website. She has performed at several live shows, including The Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2006, Reggae Sumfest 2007 & 2011, the Deck cafe, The Port Royal Music Festival, ABC Slim Traxx and her very own show “Arabian Night”. Her mixed style is influenced by singers such as Skunk,Pat Benatar, Diana King, Céline Dion, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, Bob Marley and Mahalia Jackson. Tessanne has collaborated with fellow Jamaican artistes Shaggy (“Never Let Go”) & Protoje (“Someone Like You”), the Trinidad and Tobago soca band Kes (“Loving You”) and was featured in a track; by the legendary Jamaican band Third World, titled “By My Side”. Other noted tracks by Tessanne are remakes of other famous artists and bands such as Foreigner’s “I Wanna Know What Love Is”, The Who’s “Love, Reign o’er Me”, Katy Perry’s “Firework”, and Phish’s “Free”. A remake of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” which Tessanne performed with her band Mile High also circulated through the internet early in 2006. Other works include a live performance of “You and Me” performed and written with her older sister Tami Chynn. On December 6, 2010, Tessanne released her debut album available for digital download entitled In Between Words.2013: The Voice

In September 2013 it was announced that she would be competing in Season 5 of NBC’s singing competition, The Voice, after Reggae/Dancehall star Shaggy presented her the competition as an opportunity to finally have her big break as an international star.  On the second episode of the Blind Auditions broadcast on September 24, 2013, she performed Pink’s song “Try.” All four coaches, namely Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton wanted to mentor her but she opted for Adam Levine. On December 10, 2013, her performance of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “Bridge over Troubled Water” for the Semifinal Round became #1 on the iTunes chart, with her becoming the first contestant to achieve the top chart position at the end of an applicable voting window that season. This performance also served as her first U.S. chart appearance, charting at #64 on the Hot 100 chart, #14 on the Digital Songs chart, and #5 on Heatseekers Songs chart. On the Canadian Hot 100, the song made its debut at #39. On December 17, 2013, her performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” became #1 on the iTunes chart, with her also becoming the first contestant that season to achieve the top chart position twice. The following week the cover made its debut on the Hot 100 at #51, #12 on the Digital Songs chart and #15 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Her duet with coach Adam Levine, a cover of The Beatles’ “Let It Be” charted at #76 on the Hot 100 and #24 on Digital Songs.  The songs also charted at #1 and #7 respectively on the Heatseekers Songs chart. In Canada, her cover of “I Have Nothing” charted at #32 while “Let it Be” charted at #35. I Have Nothing also served as her first song on the United World Chart entering at #34. A compilation album with studio versions of her The Voice performances was released on iTunes and charted at #4 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.

During the Finale Results show, she was revealed to be the winner of Season 5 with Jacquie Lee as runner-up and Will Champlin in third place. After her victory was announced, she debuted her first U.S. single “Tumbling Down,” written by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.
