Greetings from Alfredo Kraus.

He tells you not to worry about nasal singing, but instead to take advantage of it in order to become a lyric tenor singing french opera.

What I am trying to say: if you can't get rid of it, make it a trademark of your singing
This is not a signature

regardless of whether or not you can sound good is a nasal voice, you shouldn't. incorrect technique can be unique but there's no resonance or boldness in a nasal voice.

Diaphragmatic breathing and vocal placement. zen of screaming has a good vocal placement exercise, the one with the pencil, but the rest of it blows. just watch that part on youtube.

It's most likely because your breathing isn't relaxed, and you have a high voice that naturally goes to the nose. Try singing a scale of notes without moving your mouth and singing your lowest comfortable note in a relaxed way, as if you are sighing. I bet if you relax your breathing properly, then you won't sound as nasally.

Nasal resonance is important in singing, however in your case, this is a nasally voice due to incorrect breathing, and has nothing to do with nasal resonance.

Yeah I would totally agree that a naturally nasal voice tends to lack in many aspects and points to incorrect breathing. But it's also important to point out the difference between a nasal voice and nasal resonance. The upper 60% of the voice (excluding the range of the whistle register) relies on having a solid nasal resonance, and without that resonance the upper ranges are impossible to sing properly in.
