KINGSTON, Jamaica --Jamaican songstress Tessanne Chin has yet another reason to celebrate this week; her rendition of ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ has entered the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Just two days after winning the American reality competition, The Voice, Chin’s version of the Simon and Garfunkel song debuted at number 64, a week after she performed it in show’s semi-finals.

Billboard Magazine, one of the most recognized music media brands globally, says Chin’s version of the song sold approximately 60,000 digital units which earned her a place on its main music chart.

Previously, Chin’s best performance on the show was her cover of Jimmy Cliff’s ‘Many Rivers to Cross’, which sold 24,000 units.

Chin is currently in New York where she is making media rounds including appearances on The Today Show and Live! with Kelly and Michael.
