The first live week of The Voice came and went last week, and Tessanne Chin came out unscathed and ready to tackle the top 12. And she did so with ease, performing one of my favorite songs of the moment, “My Kind of Love” by Emeli Sande. Emeli is a fantastic singer and not exactly easy to cover but Tessanne can certainly hold her own. So how did she do? Well this evening she was just voted into the next round – a wise choice, America.
My only concern is that her iTunes sales have been middle-of-the-pack. Hopefully this isn’t an indication of an upset exit once the competition narrows and it starts to reflect popularity more and more.
