Should you always sing in mixed voice?

What is mixing singing?

Mix voice is the blending of the chest voice and the head voice. It is also the elimination of the bridge- that pesky gap that connects the two registers. When done properly, the mix voice can sound very loud and very “chesty,” leading an audience to believe the singer is belting a high note in his or her chest voice.
