When you are in a rush, hold your breath like you have to complete the task or drown. Its a breathing exersice I learned in the Navy years ago. It is really awakening to know how fast you will cheat and/or panic before you can complete the task. In time you learn to control yourself and manage your breathing. DON'T hold your breath until you pass out! You might die. Holding your breath will build an ability to manage your vocals better. You only have so much volume in your lungs to push air past vocal chords but your body will need oxygen as well. Learn to feed your body air and have extra which to sing.

For example, there are guys that hold their breath up to 15 minute to clean water wells out in africa. Its got to be done and you can bet they are not born able to to do it. They train.
