Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger – cover – Sara Loera – Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy

Hey Guys! Today Sara is going to take on the BIGGEST hit song of 1982, “The Eye of the Tiger”!

Many of you probably remember it as the theme song for the film Rocky III.

The song was originally done by the rock band Survivor formed in 1978 by Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan.

Their breakthrough came when actor Sylvester Stallone asked them to provide the theme song for his movie Rocky III. Stallone had heard some of their other music and was a BIG fan. The song was chosen for the movie and which was released 3 weeks before the song was released as a single.

Before their success with the band, Survivor members Dave Bickler Bickler and Peterik both worked as jingle singers. Peterik once sang a popular Sunkist commercial that re-worked the Beach Boys song “Good Vibrations

Survivor is one of the few bands to rack up hits with two different lead singers. “Eye of the Tiger,” was sung by original lead vocalist Dave Bickler, but when Bickler had throat surgery in 1983, he was unable to sing. So the band dumped him and filled his spot with Jimi Jamison, who sang on their later hits, including “High on You” and “The Search Is Over.”

We hope you enjoy Sara’s version of this 80’s anthem! Let us know how you think she measured up!

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
