Breathing is another important factor to improve your singing.  There are effective exercises to improve your breath support and being able to hold out phrases longer.  In this post, I am going to review a very simple exercise you can do.  

All you need to do is take a deep breath and count as you exhale this breath.  So, inhale as much breath as you can, and while you exhale that breath,  count as high as you can until your breath is all exhaled out of your body.  Do it again and try to count to a higher number.  Normally, you can count to 25 or so, but if you practice you can count to higher numbers.  The more you practice this, the higher your numbers should go.  Don't breathe just with your shallow chest breathing, but take deep breaths using you diaphragm and your whole upper body core.  Work on getting your numbers higher and you will be able to increase your amount of breath you can use to sing.  This exercise can be done anytime, so try it.  It can only help you and deep breathing is good for your body, also.  It adds more oxygen to your blood and makes that blood flow better!
