1.) You can record the MIDI output with a program called MuseScore.
MuseScore can then export the file in MP3 format which you can import
into Audacity.  Piano part done.

2.) Then record the voice part into Audacity on a separate track from a
USB microphone plugged into your computer.  Voice part done.

3.) Edit and mix the two tracks to your heart's delight with Audacity.
Project done.
