Tessanne wows White House

(Jamaica Observer) Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin delivered a scintillating, high-energy performance of Donna Summer’s Last Dance at the White House last night, earning sustained applause from an audience headed by US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.

Chin, who performed after Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae, and Melissa Etheridge, justified her inclusion in the stellar line-up for the ‘Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House’ staged by the US first lady.

At the end of her performance, as Chin returned to her seat, she was greeted with a hug and a kiss by Patti LaBelle.

Here she is seen in a screen grab from the White House’s live stream of the concert.
