Tessanne Chin Music
Tessanne was introduced to music at a very early age by her parents. Her mother was the trumpeter and singer in The Carnations and her father was the band’s drummer. The family has a recording studio in their home in Jamaica.
Tessanne started performing when she was six years old with Cathy Levy’s Little People and Teen Players Club, one of Jamaica’s top performing arts schools. Most of her vocal coaching came from her mother, as well as noted vocal coach Lecie Wright. Tessanne learned firsthand about cultural diversity when she moved to England at age 12. She coped with the move by devoting a lot of time to writing songs.
Tessanne married longtime boyfriend and broadcaster Michael Anthony Cuffe Jr in 2011. After four years of marriage, the couple confirmed that they were having marital problems. Cuffe reportedly moved out of the marital home, staying with friends.
Upon her return to Jamaica, Chin joined the Jamaican rock band Mile High and performed for crowds at many local venues including Jazzfest, Rockfest, and RETV Unplugged. Their style, “rock reggae,” was unique and distinct. After going on tour for three years with Jimmy Cliff as a back-up singer, she decided to launch her solo career.
After Tessanne left Mile High, she began writing songs for her first album. Guitarist Rudy Valentino and drummer Paul “GrooveGalore” KasticK were her producers for her 2010 independent debut album In Between Words. Her 2006 debut single, “Hideaway” received heavy rotation on Caribbean radio and select stations in New York. Both the single and its music video were very popular. The song was also featured on VP Records’ Reggae Gold 2007. After “Hideaway,” she has released two more singles, “Messenger” and “Black Books,” both available online on “In Between Words”.
She has performed at several live shows, including The Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2006, Reggae Sumfest 2007 & 2012, The Deck Cafe, The Port Royal Music Festival, ABC Slim Traxx, and her very own show “Arabian Night.”
Tessanne has collaborated with fellow Jamaican artists Shaggy (“Never Let Go”) and Protoje (“Someone Like You”), the Trinidad and Tobago soca band Kes (“Loving You”) and was featured in a track by the legendary Jamaican band Third World, titled “By My Side.” She appeared as a special guest of Third World at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on April 2011. “By My Side” was featured in the soundtrack of Robert Townsend’s series “Diary of a Single Mom” starring Monica Calhoun, Leon, and Billy Dee Williams.
Other noted tracks by Tessanne are remakes of songs by other famous artists and bands such as Foreigner’s “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” The Who’s “Love, Reign o’er Me,” Katy Perry’s “Firework,” and Phish’s “Free.” A remake of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved,” which Tessanne performed with her band Mile High, also circulated through the internet early in 2006. Other works include a live performance of “You and Me” written and performed with her older sister Tami Chynn.
On December 6, 2010, Tessanne released her independent debut album available for digital download entitled In Between Words.

Tessanne Chin Call On Him Lyrics
These are the times when we should open our eyes
Start to realize
It’s getting closer, closer
So we should get closer to the one
Closer to him
In a time like now when the world needs prayer
Call on him an lift him higher
Look what’s going on around us yea
Make a change in your self for the better
Let’s hold hands an do this together
We should all call on the one
The one up above
The one that made us
He’s the worlds greatest
No other compares to him
It’s a blessing
And I know that he will save us
Don’t be afraid
It will only make it stronger
And I know that he’ll be here forever
Just as long as you believe in him
Better days will be longer
Cause this is more than worldwide crisis
If you ready then we can survive this
How I long for you to realize this
Our prayers will work
Cause if I pray, then you pray
Pray for better days a peaceful energy
The almighty, his Majesty
Is lasting all the way
Say a prayer cause he’s listening
He’s here to ear your words
In the morning when you wake up
If you say then just a verse
To The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit
Guide an protect wi through the wicked
Help us to learn to walk away
Got to be strong in the hardest day

Tessanne Chin Divorce | Tessanne Chin Marriage
Chin shed some light on the breakup in an interview on CVM’s OnStage. She explained to host Winford Williams that the split was not as a result of foul play on either part – and she was rather surprised at what social media deemed the root of the breakup.
“Like any other human being, you have those moments where people need to respect your [wish for] privacy,” she said.
“It is something that is very personal and it is something that we are going through. There was no foul play involved and the rumors are kinda ridiculous,” Chin added.
The season 5 winner of The Voice further contended that she still has much love and respect for Cuffe and his family.
“There’s always going to be speculation; [but], not every separation has to go through something nasty or be filled with drama,” she continued, noting “Cuffe and I, we’re just friends.”
“At the end of the day, we have a friendship that means more to me than anything. I needed a moment to take a break and getaway – that’s what I did. That’s what it is,” she said.
Tessanne further argued that her latest single Fire is not a jab at Cuffe – but she understands the speculation buzzing.
“This song is absolutely not about us. It was actually written in late December, early January and the reason we decided to go with the song was it created such a buzz in the Clair Hair ad commercial we did for The Voice which was aired this season,” she indicated.
In fact, she explained that she had played the song for Cuffe and “he absolutely loved it.”
“It has nothing to do with [the breakup] – as a matter of fact, it has everything to do with being a woman and being empowered by that and not settling for less; whether it is in a relationship, workplace, as a mother, or with your friends,” she contended.
“[The song] is about knowing your worth, knowing who you are and not being afraid to stand up for that – that what [Fire] means to me,” she specified.

Last night was a lovely opportunity to share the stage with these special people @thamarwilliams @truescarlettrose @shadzdaughma 😊 I love and appreciate them beyond what I could say , they offer support not just on the stage and behind a mic but behind the scenes as well and for that I am forever grateful. Singing while preggers has been a different experience all together for sure and I find I have to sing from a different place and space but I have been glad to be able to continue do so and I’m beyond happy I get to share these moments with #Babygirl even though I wonder if she’s thinking “Hey !!! What’s going on up there !?!?! Too loud !!! 😂” We were a proper girl band last night , until I saw my bro Chris @cabbasounds playing at the same event with some amazing musicians and they so kindly hopped on their instruments to join us for the last song , this was quite by surprise and made my heart sing 😊❤️😘 #HappySundayYall #SingingWithTwiceTheSoul 😂#SingingMamma #RounUp 😂 P.S @ifidelcarlo we missed you 😝see I tagged you right by my heart ❤️ 😊❤️
