He sent a large canvas to the Chicago Art Institute in 1935 and won the Harris silver medal and $500. After this success, Singer entered numerous exhibitions, including the Whitney Museum Annual and the Corcoran Biennial. He accepted a job from Joseph Butler III to teach at the Butler Institute in 1940. He married Bernice Shimp, one of his former students, in 1941. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1942, worked as an artist for the Army, and served in the Philippines, New Guinea, and Japan before being discharged in 1945. Singer returned to the Butler Institute after the war. Over the course of his career, Singer produced over 3,000 works.
