-A '''singer''' or '''vocalist''' is a [[musician]] who uses his or her [[human voice|voice]] to produce [[music]]. Usually, singing refers to vocal [[melody]] only, though '''vocalist''' is a similar term which also encompasses non-melodic sounds and effectively includes anyone using their voice as part of a musical composition, including [[spoken word]], screaming, and [[rapping]]. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/{{PAGENAMEE}}] [May 2007]+'''Singing''' is the act of producing [[music]]al [[sound]]s with the [[human voice|voice]], and augments regular [[speech]] by the use of both [[tonality]] and [[rhythm]]. One who sings is called a '''singer''' or '''vocalist'''. Singers perform [[music]] ([[aria]]s, [[recitative]]s, [[song]]s, etc.) that can be sung either with or without [[accompaniment]] by [[musical instrument]]s. Singing is often done in a group of other musicians, such as in a [[choir]] of singers with different voice ranges, or in an ensemble with instrumentalists, such as a [[rock group]] or [[Baroque orchestra|baroque ensemble]].

Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice, and augments regular speech by the use of both tonality and rhythm. One who sings is called a singer or vocalist. Singers perform music (arias, recitatives, songs, etc.) that can be sung either with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing is often done in a group of other musicians, such as in a choir of singers with different voice ranges, or in an ensemble with instrumentalists, such as a rock group or baroque ensemble.
