Sweet & Smooth Honey Jazz

Tessanne Makes Finals With Emotional Performance
Tessanne Chin nabbed a spot in the finals of 'The Voice' after giving a flawless performance this week.

"I've never been speechless on this show before," said Levine. "I think that that’s probably the most flawless and graceful performance I’ve ever heard on this show."
