Breathing is also an important factor in singing. You will produce a pleasant tone if you work with your breathing. Conversely, singing at the same time as you’re out of breath will result in you exerting too much tension on your voice and may eventually lead to injury.

Breath support helps to prevent you from straining your throat, and thus enabling you to produce a pleasant tone.
