Professional Opera Singer / Vocal Coach ELIZABETH ZHAROFF Shares Vocal Analysis Of KISS Classic "Detroit Rock City" Live (Video)

Professional opera singer and vocal coach Elizabeth Zharoff, who also hosts the YouTube channel, The Charismatic Voice, has been drawn into the rock and metal world. Join her as she listens to and gives a vocal analysis of the KISS classic, "Detroit Rock City", performed live.

Elizabeth: "For a few years now, I've heard a lot about KISS and have been told of their legacy within the realm of Rock. I even recognize some of the face paint, though I've never heard their sound before. I'm going in blind, and realized early on that there's two camps here: those that love KISS, and those that loathe them.  Which camp will I be in?"

Elizabeth has previously shared vocal analyses of Metallica, Dream Theater, Rush, Heart, Tenacious D, Sabaton, Motörhead, Ayreon, Faith No More, Black Sabbath, Arch Enemy, Epica, Deep Purple, Myles Kennedy, Scorpions, Heart, Blind Guardian, Devin Townsend, AC/DC, Whitesnake, Queen and Guns N' Roses.
