Singing a song in its original key
I know there are a lot of mixed opinions out there on this topic, but my belief is that a song should be sung in a key that suits the singers voice, not necessarily the key chosen by the original singer. My logic is that the person who originally did the song probably chose that key because it best fit their voice, but I am not them so why should I have to do it in their chosen key? What do you all think? When you practice a song do you sing the original key or do you transpose it to suit your voice? I have an app on my phone that transposes my karaoke tracks to any key.
