Jamaicans at home and abroad gathered in front of any available screen on Tuesday, December 17, anxiously awaiting the moment when our songbird, Tessanne Chin would be crowned the Season 5 winner of Emmy-winning US talent competition The Voice. A massive crowd gathered in Half Way Tree, reminiscent of Olympics days – but this was late into the night. Wild celebrations broke out as Tessanne’s name was announced – motorists honked horns and dancing supporters beat Dutch pot covers.
