Absolutely not. Sure, it’d help you out if the character needs to sing, but otherwise, there’s absolutely no requirement for being able to sing. I really only sing comedically more than anything.
For expanding your range, just listen to all sorts of voices or think of character types and pick out ones you think are interesting and do your own take on them. According to Billy West, every “bad” impression becomes a totally unique, different voice, and I think that’s great advice.
Recreate at least 30 seconds of your choice from Sammyclassicsonicfan’s “rant against the sonic fanbase” in edgeworth’s voice. I chose edgeworth because he wears glasses and he’s a nerd like sammy.
Say what you will about SammyClassicSonicFan, if we had had access to YouTube at his age, we would’ve been a thousand times worse.
