FAQ – changes to the voice as we age

I am a 56 year old male with a Baritone voice.  I have heard that as you grow older your voice changes.  Many of those changes are not controllable.  Could you provide some insight into this stereo type and advise me of your insight  on this subject.  In other words, at my age is there any use getting serious with vocals?  I started singing in the Praise and Worship group at church several years ago, but am not thrilled with my solo voice…blending is good, but for some reason, on the mic…it just doesn’t cut it for me.
