The singer doesn't need an explicit 'note to sing along to', it's done by relative pitch memory, practise & familiarity with the song. This is not really all that different to the mechanism by which a classically-trained singer can sing from a sheet of dots. They just have a better set of internal references to rely on.

6 months into singing. The majority of folk will start singing when quite young, even as a bit of fun, and develop that as they get older. Not many will wake up one morning and think 'I need to learn how to sing, not having sung a note previously!'.

You're improving! Better tone, and you're no longer clipping off the ends of your notes. Well done. What will you be doing with your singing? I'd like to hear you singing with music. Several songs, in different styles. Work on preparing those recordings.

I've had the same question and I don't believe you're getting the answer you want. The answer is that while a G note resonates with C more favorably, because it's a fifth ... Doh Re Mi Fa Soh ...
