The Art of listening (all the best singers have this)

The ability to raise your vocal sound to a whole new and wonderful level strangely begins with the art of listening.

Even if you have the most powerful and beautiful voice, if you miss half the detail of a vocal when you hear it, this may let you down.

So my suggestion to you is to practice listening with enclosed headphones on. These are even better than iPod headphones as they tend to block out distracting sounds from the outside world. Maybe even have your eyes closed when you do this?

Then try listening to this intense degree at the same time as being focused on the lyric sheet. You can mark in by hand the breathing, bar rests, phrasing, sound production, projection, and the placement of your sound. Anything that you feel is relevant and important to getting the most awesome vocal sound you possibly can!
