The ability to sing is not necessarily something you are born with. You may be born with the right genetics and physiological characteristics that put you in a better vocal disposition to become a singer, but that doesn't mean singing is innate. You have to learn how to use this vocal device in order to sing. The answer to this depends on how predisposed you are to sing through your natural experiences and abilities.
Almost anyone can learn to sing basic tuned songs, but actually singing, at the highest level your potential allows, is going to take a lot of hard work. Research carried out by several universities has shown that training and practice are more a factor than the natural ability to learn to sing. This means that, wherever you are on the talent spectrum, raising your level will require hard work, and by definition, hard work is hard. Of course, this doesn't mean you shouldn't go ahead.
It is a great satisfaction to work towards a difficult goal and achieve it. Start with the basics and then gradually move towards more challenging goals with your singing.

That said, if you're 28 years old and you've never taken a voice lesson and you say, “I really want to create a career in singing, I'm going to tell you directly and say it's going to be hard. I had an amazing friend, she was a comedian, and she used to say, “If you can talk, you can sing.
A study by the University of Melbourne called Let's Hear Twins Sing aims to discover what factors influence the ability to sing and to what extent genes play a role in tone accuracy. Singing can be a psychological battle and, like anything that requires a certain skill, you need to be able to enter the “zone where you can do your best work”. You can also use your theoretical knowledge to improve your ability to sing more accurately more complicated and challenging passages, such as arpeggios (broken chords) and longer intervals. Practically anyone else can learn to sing with practice, so don't listen to the nonsense that you don't have the innate talent for singing.
Singing is more of a learned skill than a natural talent, said Steven Demorest, a professor of music education at Northwestern University who recently published a study in the magazine Music Perception that compared the singing accuracy of kindergarten children, sixth graders and college-age adults.
