Tessanne Chin lived up to the hype on The Voice 2013 final live performance on Monday night with a mammoth performance of Whitney Houston’s classic “I Have Nothing.”
Houston is undoubtedly a giant shoe to fill in the singing world, but Tessanne Chin made it look too easy.
“I dont have thoughts right now,” Adam Levine said after a long pause. “Everybody know this is sacred ground. Everybody stay away from Whitney Houston because it is so hard… It is unlike anything I’ve ever heard… I have no doubt in my mind that you are the winner of this show.”
During rehearsals Tessanne Chin did not get phased when Adam told her she should sing Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.”
“Of course I can’t sing like Whitney Houston, but I consider this as a tribute to her,” Tessanne Chin said.
Tessanne Chin roared into The Voice finals last week with a flawless performance of “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” She went on to top the iTunes chart later that night with that performance.
The Jamaican songstress is the hot favourite to win The Voice 2013 grand prize of a recording contract and a cash prize of $100,000.
