  There is an alternative.   It is "Speaking----On----Pitch".


  You  can read the words of the song  in the same tones as the words are sung, but without actually singing.  You might try that.


  By the way, when I work with students, I never ask them to actually "sing" the song.  A few can sing, and quite well when studying English, but many cannot.  We are still able to use the songs  as a useful lesson material.

I think the main thing is to get the lyrics and sing along while reading the lyrics. Spotify with tunewiki or musixmatch follows along with the song. Or you can just type in "Name of song, lyrics" in google.

I too am willing to listen advice in English vorcalisation. Not only plactice in siging, also you might need abdominal breathing that English pronunciation requires. Which is different from my mother tongue. 


No matter how often plactice English songs, I can't pronunce effectively most part in Karaoke campared just reading sentence. I don't know how I can practice abdominal breathing and English pronunciation at the same time~.

I have been trying to learn K-pop songs.  What I do is get the lyrics up in hangul and then I use Audacity to record it.  Then I play it super slow so I can clearl hear the sounds, since they sing so quickly.  I compare what I hear with the Hangul and then I write a phonetic version in English.  Then I sing off of my lrics and memorize it

Singing is my favorite hobby ! :) 
It was pretty hard for me to sing an English song at first.. but then I could sing in English like natives..
it just needs practice and patience.. My advice to you is to get the lyrics of the desired song.. then play the song to the end of verse 1, then try to sing it.. try agian and again to sing it as close as possible from the original song.. after you finish verse 1 play the chorus and try the same way I told you. finish chorus and go to verse 2 .. and That's it :)
If you find this is not working, go to Youtube and try to find a slower cover of the desired song which is more clear on singing pronounciation.. :)
