Can solo singing have harmony?

Can a solo singer who’s just singing with no background instruments, music, sounds, etc, literally just their voice, have harmony?

    Not if they are singing in the normal way. Ordinary singing can only produce one note at a time.

    There may be some type of “ethnic singing” (sorry, don't know what other term to use) where people can produce some kind of drone whilst singing over the top. I really can't see how that could physically be done though. I have heard performers produce sounds vocally that to me were impossible! Clearly they weren't.

    "Harmony; in music, the sound of two or more notes heard simultaneously."

    Can you sing two or more notes at the same time?

    No.  A singer cannot sing multiple notes simultaneously.  As such, a singer cannot sing harmony in live performances.  

    However, one singer made a studio recording of her singing.  While that studio recording was played, the singer sang harmony, all of which was also recorded.  The end result was a recording of a singer singing harmony to her own singing.

    No. Harmony is two or more voices, vocal or instrumental. singing or playing different parts. A solo is one voice, vocal or instrumental.
