Jamaicans can continue to support Tessanne’s progress in the American talent show, The Voice in three ways: encouraging friends and family in the United States to vote; purchasing her performance songs on iTunes and following her on Twitter @Tessanne. This from telecommunications company, Digicel that has assisted TVJ to acquire the rights to broadcast the show locally, so that more Jamaicans would be able to watch and support Tessanne. In the first week of voting on The Voice, the vocal powerhouse was voted as part of the top 12 contestants who will now battle each week to hold a position on the programme.

According to NBC’s terms and conditions however, voting from outside the United States will not be accepted. As a result Jamaicans in the diaspora are encouraged to vote while those at home can opt to purchase her songs on iTunes and follow her on Twitter. As it pertains to Twitter the show has announced a new feature called "Instant Save," which gives viewers a five-minute voting window toward the end of the results show. It is understood that “Instant Save” will be used over the next few weeks, as viewers tweet #VoiceSave along with their contestant’s name.

“Digicel has always supported Jamaican talent and we believe that Tessanne has an extraordinary gift. Jamaicans in the diaspora should do their best to vote for her so that she can remain on the show. And since we now also know that following @Tessanne on Twitter will count, we are encouraging everyone on social media to follow her,” said Digicel’s Senior Sponsorship Manager, Tahnida Nunes.

The next edition of the Voice will be broadcast this evening and Tessanne’s friends and family members have been elated at her progress and are eager to see her continue to do well.

“We are so proud of Tessanne, regardless of what happens, we know that she is going to do very well and are glad that the world now knows, what we always did - just how wonderful and talented Tessanne really is,” said Tessanne’s agent, Sharon Burke, Solid Agency.
