Analyzing Cherie Currie's singing

Begins at 0:23

A timbre that lies between medium and Dark.
Always using a remarkable distortion,except on the (song's) light parts.
Sings in a Mezzo range,mostly with chest. Big voice with very little air,yet not as big as Gospel singing.

On 1:00-1:08 she used distortion in medium notes,which gave her voice quite some "aggressiveness".

From 1:20 to 1:26 she hold a note with some fast vibrato,then turned it into a glissando,overdriving quite much at that last note.
Very crazy stuff.

Is her distortion healthy ? Wonder whether it should be approached by Glottal or Hyperglottal compression.

    It's a little over-the-top, and could lead to blowout. You can get plenty of healthier distortion without overdriving like that.
