Singing is just sustained talking while moving the pitch of your voice up or down. Try it.

Wow, that's a ridiculous oversimplification. There is definitely much, much more to singing than that.

Moved this thread to the subforum Singing and Vocals (make sense?)

so check out he stickies and tips around this forum.

Also I tried some vocal warmup youtube videos by a guy called Eric Arceneaux and they were really good - I think there are four videos that provide a basic warmup. Do this everyday and it will help your voice improve quickly. You want to get a good vocal coach though that can see andhear you in person to help you work on things. If you can't afford it go the the library and get Singing for Dummies - it has a CD and also many excercises that if you practice daily will help your singing voice.

--Oh wait you posted the same thread in the MT forum and the Singing and Vocals forum?? - I deleted the other one. Please refrain from posting the same thread in multiple forums.
