TESSANNE Chin crossed another river last night with the hope of making it all the way on NBC's The Voice, delivering a soulful rendition of the Jimmy Cliff classic Many Rivers To Cross.
Her performance left her coach Adam Levin at a loss for words.
"I don't know where to begin with you," said the Maroon 5 frontman. "Your talent is just mind-boggling.... I am so dazzled by what I just saw up there. It does not get any better than what just happened," he told a sobbing Chin (pictured above).
Levine, who selected the song for Chin, saw the Cliff cult classic as an important way for Chin to represent her Jamaican people and heritage. In the rehearsals, he raised the key of the song, noting that it would be too easy for Chin to reproduce in the original track.
Her fate for the top 12 spots now rests in the hands of voters.
The result show airs on Thursday.
