The Voice winner Tessanne Chin supports housing programs in Haiti
Join Tessanne Chin as she works to provide safe, permanent houses to Haitian families
As the winner of Season 5 of NBC’s The Voice, Tessanne Chin needs little introduction. Thousands of people from the Jamaican community helped her secure her win.
Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica with musical parents, Tessanne knew she always wanted to be a musician. For three years, she sang backup for reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, but eventually broke out as a solo artist.
Now she’s hoping her devoted fans will support her efforts to replace rickety huts with safe, permanent homes for families in Ganthier, Haiti.
The housing conditions in Ganthier are a reflection of the poverty that is prevalent throughout the region. Dilapidated shacks made of mud, clay and other discarded materials are used to build decrepit hovels.
Tessanne’s commitment to helping families living in despair in Haiti has her joining Food For The Poor’s Building Hope Gala as its headline performer. She will perform her new single “Tumbling Down” at the gala, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 at The Polo Club of Boca Raton.
“I am so honoured to be a part of this event,” said Chin. “I am in full support of Food For The Poor and I’m grateful to have this opportunity to lend my voice in helping to bring awareness to a great cause.”
Please help Tessanne in her effort to build houses for the less fortunate in Haiti and send your most generous gift today.
