PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Tessanne Chin sparkles at entertainment industry dinner in Cali
Call her Little Miss Sunshine. Tessanne Chin didn’t have to summon her melismatic pipes to command the room at the Anti-Defamation League’s entertainment industry dinner in Beverly Hills recently. Her megawatt radiance and neon-bright designer wardrobe were right on the mark, as the effervescent Jamaican chanteuse and Season 5 winner of NBC’s The Voice rubbed shoulders with guests at the exclusive function, hosted by the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, to specially honour producer Mark Burnett and actress-producer Roma Downey for their years-long work in the business. Photographed above, Chin is obviously delighted to have word with Burnett who appears just as intrigued by the songbird. Meanwhile, TALLAWAH cannot emphasize enough the packed half-a-year that Chin has coming up, what with her on-the-way major-label debut album (which Wayne Marshall says is a classic-in-the-making), appearances across the continents and, perhaps most eagerly awaited of all, her return to the Reggae Sumfest stage in July. Stay tuned.
