Just sing. That's all you can do. Some singers are more breathy and soft to get the note. Some can just let it fly and wail. It's all about what you can do.

It wont be a conscious thing. As long as you're not trying to mimic, it will happen naturally with practice and patience.

Also, get a vocal coach. Vocal coaches ftw!

excellent advice, much better than what i did, playing and singing through worship practice playing around with different keys and wasting valuable time practicing because of what I should have been practicing on my own, but now i have a good feel about what im capable of.

with the advice above, sing songs when your driving in your car, get a feel with what your range is!

I actually have to disagree with this. Its hard to have the proper posture while you are in your car and posture is VERY important to tone.

I've got a question, my mom believes that screaming-type music is damage to your vocals. Is this true? My mom believes that heavy singing can damage your vocals.

it will damage them...that's why there's a separate thread for screaming questions in the Vocals forum...screaming will pretty much guarantee jacked up vocals.

Don't try to sing like someone else, it's a long road to frustration that can waste years of time. If you have a voice that kind of sounds like that already, then develop what you have. Otherwise, you need to be yourself and focus on a unique style. Top vocal coaches in the world will give you this same advice.

I'll tell you what helped me develop my voice better than anything. Look up Singing Success on Google and click on the first result.

I'll admit, the website makes it look too good to be true. It does work though. It's basically a series of vocal exercises that seem really silly. The exercises don't necessarily improve your voice in and of themselves, although they include probably the best vocal warm-up exercise ever. What they are designed to do is to teach the actual mechanics of good singing, which is critical. Personally, they helped me understand the different vocal coordinations and how\when to use them. Previously, I didn't even know the different vocal coordinations existed, let alone how to get into them.

I was able to take my voice from a nasal, unstable mess to a natural, full and healthy tone in about two months. There are a lot of vocal techniques and suggestions out there such as raising your soft palette, smiling while you sing and "giving more support" (pushing) for high notes. These things only create strain and get you focusing on a million different things while you sing. It was very frustrating for me to try to maintain everything at the same time. Singing Success makes singing seem so natural. The guy who developed it is a form SLS (Speech Level Singing) vocal coach.
