Can I sing? No, this isn't a troll question. The reason I am asking is because I occasionally get asked to sing by my friends who ALWAYS catch me singing and they say I have a 'good voice' etc. I also sometimes get asked to sing with a group of my classmates for singing competitions for school. But when it comes down to my sister and my mom, mostly my sister, they tell me to stop singing because I sound like a 'dying banshee' whenever I sing. Last week when I was trying to practice my ear training skill by figuring out the melody and chords of songs by singing them (I play the piano and my former music teacher says I should try to develop my ear training skill more) and my sister told me that I sound like a 'dying roach' and that I should stop before she turns permanently deaf and she was SERIOUS about it. I sung to figure out the notes on the piano again while she wasn't at home and my cousin caught me singing and he said I 'have a good voice'. So I am a bit confused. I also turned down opportunities to sing on stage because of it.
So give me your best opinion. I may sound a bit off key in some parts because I have a problem with my tonsils right now. (Acute tonsillitis. It has been affecting me for three weeks now).
This is me singing in the higher end of my voice: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0Yml8cvI7o2

well see your voice is definitely miles ahead on what a normal person can sing at least me but it ain't perfect. you need to perfect your voice , try going to music classes or something to achieve that. But i strongly disagree with your sister she is over exaggerating your voice probably she's jealous of you.1

You have an okay tonal quality. I'd describe it as airy. You seem to be struggling with the higher notes (or at least it sounds that way.) I don't know your range particularly, but I wish I got to hear you sing in a lower key. I feel like it may be a better fit for your voice.
You also need to work on your diction. I wasn't familiar with the song you were singing, and had some trouble understanding the words. I had to listen three times before I fully understood everything. It's important to fully pronounce all words to they can be clearly understood.
I do see potential, though. I worked a lot by myself just listening to recordings of myself singing to help fix my pitch errors. It also helps to get a friend that will be honest with you when you're making a mistake.1
