    What have you read?

    If you mean it literally, it can easiest be done in the lowest register,
    where the amount of air flowing each second usually is the largest.
    I have heard singing while playing be performed on tubas and trombones,
    but not yet on trumpet, although it maybe can be done on that too.
    The range in which you can sing is very limited, I believe, and only allows
    you to sing the lowest tones.

    Maybe the matter you saw discussed was about

    * actually singing in the horn?
    * opening your throat like a singer while playing?
    * making music, making the horn "sing"?

    I've never seen a piece of music that required "singing" into the horn while playing.

    Making your horn "sing" while playing is different. That refers to making a beautiful, singing tone.

    Good! Then check Nordlands videoclip no. 1 (the top one)!

    As you can hear, the notes that are sung are quite low . . .
