A trained opera singer critiques Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” after hearing it for the first time

The latest Charismatic Voice video (aka opera singer Elizabeth Zharof) gets a lot of traffic by critiquing non-opera song that she’s apparently hearing for the first time. She’s heard Rush before (she was slightly freaked out by “The Spirit of Radio” in an earlier video) and has now moved on to “Tom Sawyer.”

    Seriously – you couldn’t find a more flattering picture?

    It looks like the worst pic they could find from the video. It also says she was “freaked out” by her first Rush video which is false. She complimented them at the highest level. It’s sad how the media distorts reality to make a story.
