FDP Forum / Sing, Sing, Sing! - Vocalist's Forum / starting the song vocally in the correct key

Any hints for this. The song will be in the correct key for my voice. But then when it comes times to sing and play it (usually in church). I start off in the wrong key vocally. I thought giving me a intro would help. That doesn't seem to do anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What I do when a song is difficult to start in the right key is learn the starting note of the song. For instance is the song starts vocally on a g note I play a quick g on guitar and hum to the pitch so when I start I'm on the g and all is good.
