Millions of viewers witnessed a feat that had been speculated from her auditions. Jamaica’s own Tessanne Chin was deemed the winner of The Voice Season 5. With grace and poise, the dynamic vocalist embraced the challenge that was set before her. The love poured in from the judges, her peers and especially from the viewing public across the U.S. and Jamaica.
Tessanne, like many of her competitors, following on social media had increased. Though evidence suggests that was inevitable, the ways in which the viewing public used social media to rally or troll this competition was resounding.
Concepts like Social TV paid an integral part of her global support system. Fans and well wishers were able to simultaneously watch and use social media sites like Twitter to encourage and votes for their favourite competitor.
What’s next for the Jamaica’s sweetheart? Along with recording an album and a series of performances, Tessanne should make significant headway in her career for 2014.
With an opportunity to grace the world’s stage, Tessanne will be hoisted on a platform like many other successful performers such Bob Marley and Shaggy.
