Dear Editor,

Tessanne Chin has done Jamaica proud and in all of this I call on the Government to give her ambassador status. I can't think of anyone else at this moment that I would love to see as our ambassador.

As The Voice aired each week, Jamaicans from all walks of life tuned in to see Tessanne perform her songs flawlessly. We all waited to hear the comments and see the reaction of the crowd as they soaked up the talent of our Jamaican songstress. We waited in anticipation to hear the announcement that we could now cast our votes. We used the Magic Jack, downloaded the songs on iTunes and any other way that we could. This young woman became an instant hit and, as you travelled throughout Jamaica, you could hear her songs from The Voice being played in taxis, buses, on the street-side and in homes. Jamaica united behind this woman, many of whom maybe had not heard her sing before.

Regardless of what was on the news that was negative, Tessanne made us forget all about it every Monday and Tuesday night. A humbler performer I don't think one could find. She quickly became a favourite in competition. She spoke with her Jamaican accent and soon everyone wanted to speak that way. Competing coach Christina Aguilera even said she could listen to her speak all day. Coach Adam Levine predicted her winning The Voice. Blake Shelton predicted it also. Adam and the other judges were left speechless on many occasions. She is polite, intelligent, jovial, and much more. At five feet, two inches tall, she proves that big things come in small packages. She has proven that it is not only in athletics that Jamaicans can excel, but anything they put their minds to. One person united Jamaicans at home and abroad and as such I wish to be the first to nominate Tessanne Chin for ambassador-at-large of Jamaica.
