Ten Reasons We’re All Rooting for Tessanne Chin

Thanks again to Peter Jordens for sending this observation from News and Views by Dionne Jackson Miller (November 12, 2013). This is directed at Jamaicans, but I am sure many of our readers can relate to most of the reasons below. I, for one, am cheering!

  1. Who ever thought Jamaicans would be killing themselves to figure out how to vote for anyone? That alone makes the whole thing worth watching!
  2. We don’t get too many opportunities to unite behind a common cause. It’s fun to feel really patriotic.
  3. Watching The Voice is a welcome change from crime, politics and the Jamaican economy (even for those of us in the news business!)
  4. We love to watch Jamaicans outdo other nationalities.
  5. We REALLY love to watch Jamaicans outdo Americans.
  6. It’s awesome to see award-winning stars big up one of our own.
  7. Tessanne SOUNDS like a Jamaican.
  8. She said ‘Talk de tings” on a US network.
  9. We love sharing in her journey as she tries to fulfill her dreams.
  10. She can sing! No gimmicks, sheer talent that makes us proud.

What would you add to my list?
