According to the dictionary hints, "voor" can mean "for" as well as "in front of". So could it also be "the woman, in front of whom I sing" (i.e. she is the audience or a juror in a competition) ?

Another possibility - The woman ahead of whom I sing? I guess we'll have to report those options next time we run into this sentence to see if they're acceptable.
