What do you think about changing keys for certain songs during live performance?

My band is going to play a little show this summer for our friends and family. In our setlist we will be performing Let it Be and Pumped Up Kicks. Even though I can "sing" these songs with the right technique (correct vowel mods and light bright vowel sounds) and hit the notes, they just simply sound weird because they are sung by tenors and I am a high baritone. It sounds more natural and is more comfortable to sing when I perform them one key lower. Is this cheating?
