Vocal Coach Reacts to Survivor | I Can’t Hold Back | Jimi Jamison | Live

Survivor is a band that to me is one of the unsung heroes of the 80s.

Part of what I get to do with these reactions is to share with you the music that has influenced me and Survivor is definitely one of those bands.

Though best known for their hit “Eye Of The Tiger”, the band put out so many other great songs.

The 80s were the most successful period for the band and they produced numerous singles that topped the charts in the US.

Jimi Jamison was made the frontman in 1984 after original lead singer Dave Bickler developed vocal fold nodules and had to have surgery. Throughout the band’s career, the two were swapped back and forth as lead singer.

For today’s reaction we’ll be looking at a live performance with Jamison as lead singer performing their hit “I Can’t Hold Back”.

I hope you enjoy the video and I encourage you to check out some more of their stuff.

Please make sure to let me know what you thought of the performance!

“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:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
