comment What to do if mother-in-law is singing at meal?
@Fred Indeed. Perhaps those should be chosen. This answer's not even mentioning that option is rather weak, though to be fair the OP never specified what his issue with the singing was.

"I don't understand why a wordless niggun would be preferable." You can't say pesukim in front of Ervah. Despite some modern sensibilities, there are plenty of ways of having a nice Shabbos meal without songs. I might think it's obvious that the referenced Kol Isha opinion isn't worth following ever, but the case here in the question assumes you got a psak that it's assur. "many poskim permit" is that the case in the OP's case?

Maybe, just maybe, your mother-in-law is a reasonable person and actually respects her son-in-law has his way of Judaism and she'll listen to you in your presence?

Maybe you shouldn't start songs? Maybe you should start nay-nay-nay-ing instead of saying words of pesukim? Maybe you should let your wife get angry and divorce her (w/o Ketuba) if she continues violating Das Yehudis? Maybe you shouldn't invite your in-laws over?

@Emilios1995 See the Chida in Nachal Kedumim Beshallach 14. As well worth reading the commonly cited but oft caricatured responsum of the Seridei Eish on the matter. Note that most Rishonim had no Kol Isha qualms with women Leining (interpret that as you may).

Do you live in a context where women sing songs like this generally?

@ray How is that simple? What is asur? I don't understand. Sing along and enjoy your Shabbat. I don't know how anyone can answer this when you haven't even formulated the scope of this alleged prohibition. Unbinding VTC as unclear.

There are lots of opinions about what kind of female voice usage is prohibited for various people to interact with in various ways. Please specify accd to what opinion your question is (ie precisely what is forbidden for whom) in order to best figure out how to avoid that prohibition. Also, worth sourcing your position.

comment Why does one have to put on Tefillin every day?
Care to source everything else? The claim that Tefillin should be worn at Mincha on Tisha b"Av is barely even relevant to the question... The Shulchan Arukh says Tefillin should be worn every Shmoneh Esrei. That is just a Heter that the 'prohibition' in the morning no longer applies.

comment Zechuyos for one to get better
How do you know it's one of those three? Maybe it's giving Zeroa Lechayayim and Keiva to a Kohein? Maybe it's just keeping halacha always (something most of us fail it in different ways)?
