Editing vocals recorded on iPhone

I've been playing with recording songs or reading my poems as voice memos on my iPhone 5 (iOS 10) lately. I want to clean the audio up before I share it in any capacity. I have a PC running Windows 8.1. I'm hoping to learn the basics of things to specifically do in Audacity or another free program. I cannot afford software or recording equipment, and I have no previous knowledge of sound editing. For a sample here is a PJ Harvey cover I recorded today.

How do I make a group of non-singers sound good?

On Monday afternoon I will be recording a group (6-7) of non-singers singing a parody song for an event. The song being parodied is a novelty song and the only instrumental/karaoke versions of the song I've been able to find are rather sparse keyboard or guitar only tracks...which means that the non-singers will need to carry the tune. This isn't a singing competition so while the key priority is everyone has fun, what are the "simple" things I can do to make it sound like we can sing even just a bit. [more inside]
