Anita Antoinette Proudly Sings for Jamaica on The Voice

Anita Antoinette Proudly Sings for Jamaica on The Voice

Posted by Shanelle Weir on November 19, 2014

She did her family – and her native land – proud. 

Kingston, Jamaica, native Anita Antoinette stepped up to honor her island-nation homeland Monday on The Voice, delivering a theatrical and spirited performance of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" as her mother – who brought the family to the U.S. for a better life – looked on in wonder. 



"You gotta be proud," Adam Levine told her amid cheers afterward, noting Antoinette's obvious talent and the importance of sharing Marley's message of freedom to the world. 

"Tonight, you get to be that ambassador to Jamaica," Levine said. 

Antoinette's coach, Gwen Stefani, no small fan of the island nation herself – she named her first son Kingston – was similarly caught up in the singer's reggae stardust. "It was authentic, it was beautiful, and it was true," she said. "I just feel blessed to be a part of it." 

Antoinette's singing capped two hours of solid performances, as The Voice's final dozen artists took to the stage, hoping to impress viewers who will whittle the group down to 10.
