"The Voice" 2013 came to a close Dec. 17 on NBC as powerhouse vocalist Tessanne Chin was named the season five winner at the end of the star-studded finale results show. Chin, 28, bested runner-up Jacquie Lee of Team Christina Aguilera and teammate Will Champlin for the honor.

As a former back-up singer for Jimmy Cliff with plenty of performance experience under her belt, it wasn't surprising when Chin's blind audition rendition of Pink's "Try" drew the attention of and ovations from all four coaches. She went with her gut in selecting Adam Levine, who prophetically declared "you could easily win 'The Voice' this year" mere moments after her audition concluded, as her mentor.

During her tenure on the show, she earned notice for her kind-hearted demeanor as well as her consistently good performances. Recent weeks saw her popularity with the voting public rise dramatically as she scored two number one hits on the iTunes top 400 chart in as many weeks, nailing both the Simon and Garfunkel hit "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and the Whitney Houston classic "I Have Nothing."

Chin also earned the support of an eclectic group of celebrity fans along the way, including, among others, Sean Kingston, Olympic champion Usain Bolt, and personal finance guru Suze Orman.

Chin's big win marks the second show victory for Levine. The Maroon 5 frontman's first win came at the close of season one when Javier Colon took the title over runner-up Dia Frampton. Seasons two, three and four were all won by artists representing country music super star Blake Shelton.

"The Voice" will return to NBC for its sixth season in the spring of 2014.
