Yes. Just don't turn on the distortion the feedback you may get could kill you.
Do you use a BR-600?

yes. put the amp in front of the singer, and as far from the singer as possible.

start out with a low volume. and dont push the speaker.

Guitars and microphones have a very different impedance, don't use a guitar amp for a microphone. Get a power amp and some speakers, as well as a mixer if you intent on using more than one microphone eventually.

If he uses a dynamic mic with a SS amp he will be more than fine...

hare krishnas over here use some guitar amp to chant their stuff as they march the streets 24/7

alright, so it'll be like a wedgie monitor when you play live, except far away from me?

We run a mic through a ****ty SS peavey at every band practice we've had, and it never dies.

But that's our amp, I don't know a thing about yours.

me and my band sometimes use a tube amp to run vocals though it sounds pretty good actually
i hope it doesn't hurt the amp.
but... it's not my amp so. yeah.

welll the valvetronix would work better as it is completely noiseless, the marshall is fairly noisy and gives a fair bit of feedback.
