Yes – I’ve found that singing brain can work with singers as well, though it is a little trickier than it is with musicians. It’s also a little less necessary than it is with musicians precisely because you do have text, which adds a whole other level of things to keep you focused and grounded in the present. The main idea is to have something that prevents you from self-monitoring and judging what’s coming out. It could be an issue of just needing a bit more practice at it – but does it help if you focus more on the internal audiation and less on paying attention to what the actual singing sounds like?
The memory palace could be adapted to fit your own images. Because here too the idea is to have some structure or plan for navigating a piece. Instrumentalists often have to create a rather arbitrary (but still personally meaningful) one, whereas singers often have a context and story provided, which can make it easier to establish some sort of narrative-like structure for organizing the piece.
