I don't know if I totally understand your question.  My opinion is that the vocals should be on top of the mix.  Also do you have monitors?  Maybe they just need more monitor?  Are they sharing a microphone?  Are these just a few vocalists or a choir?  If there are just a few, then they should each have their own microphone.

We need more information.  Also you need to change your alias to your real and full name, it's the rule.

What other instruments are on the stage?  Are the monitors running separate from the mains?  If you so you should be able to turn up the singers in the monitors using the auxes on the board.

The instruments i have are drums which are right next to the stage along with the keyboard and the loudspeakers are running through the auxes  and the floor monitors are going through the mains i never noticed that until now i should probably have to change that around hehe
