I was just wondering what everyone thought. Is singing something you can learn or is it a natural ability?

I think it's a bit of both, some are born with a grewat voice, others not so much, but then of course, there are vocal training classes, but that doesn't mean your gonna become the world's next best singer.

every thing can be learned if you desire. granted you may have to work harder at it than someone else.

Some of us just weren't born with a "good" singing voice but if you stay on key and practive you can make the most of what you have.
None of these guys sang like Elvis but I like their vocal energy. It's all in how you use what you have and being wise enough to choose the right songs too.

I was born with a decent voice but there are alot of things you can use to develop it, the biggest thing is learning ow to sing powerfully, something to do with singing either from or not from your diaphragm can't remember which, then you can sing the same notes but with like 10X the volume, I personally have no idea of my range, I was just taking about this with my friends mom and she said after about 3-4 lessons she had developed a 3.5 octave range which is more than that of Rob Halford fomr Judas Priest

Robert Plant would, I assume, would be an example of massive talent mixed with practice and not too many "lessons."

Mariah Carey has a massive vocal range. I'm not sure, but I remember hearing 8 octaves. I couldn't find specifics after five minutes of Wikipedia searching, but the world record is 8, so maybe not quite that high.

p.s. That last part was kind of directed at ThePusher, or anyone interested.

My searches put Mariah somewhere in the 4.5 to 5 range in octaves... seems to be heavily disputed. I hate my singing voice, but I'm slowly getting better. Though I don't think I'll ever get as good as even as Clapton or Dylan.

both. some are blessed with it, and some have to learn it.

Well, I think that depends what level of singing we talk. If someone singing without an background music perfectly for notes she/he wants, cant be natural ability for my opinion, its learned. As we know some people sing from "their nose", Their throat" and "their lungs" In my opinion only from lungs is what is right technic to sing, also that is hard to believe to be an natural ability.

Only singing voice is an natural ability, but that also can be improved with learning (vibratoes, soul-style hoarse and so on).

i think ure born with a range of octave ranges, like someone can sing like ex. 2 octaves, but with practice he might be able to sing in 2.5 or even 3, but you controlling ur voice is another issue

I guess everyone can sing within a certain range, really. Just gotta find your voice, I guess.

its all about your lung power. you just got to learn how to use your lungs, thats what makes a bulk of your singing voice. people would tell me a great voice when i would use my lungs. then i smoked for three years and lost a lost of my lung power, and sucked. now im working on getting it back.
