    It's fun to sing. I was a music major--piano principal, voice option. MY singing problem is that I never got past the high volume upper register. People NOTICE my voice when I sing and I continue to work on my Mezzo Soprano voice.
    If you REALLY want to sing you will need to take voice lessons and be very serious about the repertoire that your teacher gives you, even if you don't personally care for it. It is chosen to advance the voice, not to make your happy, just so you know that Art Songs are important.
    When I was a kid, and listening to Chicago's WLS--it was a Billboard Top 40 station, then--most of the headliner groups and singles pushed themselves without a lot of vocal help. NOW, every singer you hear has a vocal coach. They work on:
    Abdominal breath support
    Lung capacity
    Tone
    Chest voice and head voice
    Volume, while avoiding vocal nodes (Adele had to go on vocal silence to fix hers)
    PITCH!!!!!!
    You must be able to know when you are on pitch. Scales, arpeggios, grace notes and other exercises are what creates a good voice.
    If you want to sing better, sing often and sing as pianissimo as possible. Stand, hands on a chair facing the floor, relaxing your tummy, so you don't reach for your notes.
    You can see how a coach can help
    Good luck!

    Thanks a lot, that information helped! I've been looking for a singing coach or someone like that but I haven't found one in the area yet, so I'll just keep looking.
