The difference is the same as between knew and known, between took and taken, between gave and given, and so on.
Do you know your three principal parts of the verbs?

I sang the song, the song was sung by me.

George was the singer, he sang the song, the song was sung by George.

It sounded ok when I sang, it was better when George sang.

I love all the songs he has sung.

I especially loved the song he sang to finish.

When you use the passive voice like:
I sang the song. (active)
The song was sung by me. (passive)

In passive you use: Subject + form of to be + Past Participle
