Group Spotlight: LATIN VOICES SMULE COMMUNITY

IMG_3337

LATIN VOICES SMULE COMMUNITY

Latin Voices Smule Community is more than a simple group; it is a large family that encompasses not only Latino and Hispanic people, but also Smule users around the world of all ages, this is because we have been developing subgroups during these two years and a little more than four months approximately.

Latin Voices was created by Sing! User: Diego (@Paulizinho) with Arizbel the 5th of February 2015. We have a solid, creative, innovative and dynamic organization and a staff of vocal trainers who help every day in making this community grow. We always have fun with singing events in Smule, and we share knowledge with everyone. The most important part is that we try our best to make them feel happy and we administer unity as of that of a family.

The great Administration is composed of the following:

Founder: Diego (@Paulizinho), Co-Founder: Juaner (@JuanerLaRiva), Co-Founder: Kerenha (@Kerenha), Leaders: Yuleny (@ LV_YulyFlores1), Helard (@HelardBejarano), Magdy (@ magdy78), Cristhy @_CS_Cris_LV _SMx_), Laura (@LV_Arual), Gloria (@canchitalinda), Roberta (@TUSC_Roby), Alejandro (@SLG_Alejandro_LV), Javier (@ Javierluis_19), Talita (@talita_naf_LV).

Latin Voices has the following subgroups available:

  • LATIN VOICES (SMULE FAMILY): Latin / Hispanic Smule Family.
  • LATIN VOICES (BRAZIL): Brazilian Smule Family.
  • LOVE OF MUSIC (LV ENGLISH): English Group.
  • LATIN VOICES MUSIC UNIVERSITY (11-15 TEENS FAMILY).

Each subgroup is segmented by language and we create music events in Smule like group songs, musical challenges, and other activities.

In the midst of all these activities, Latin Voices has also hosted singing competitions in Smule that brought together Latin, Hispanic, Indonesian, American and other ethnicities worldwide to discover the talent of other users from this excellent karaoke app.

The competitions that we have created and developed are:

  • The Vocal Games (#TVG)
  • The Choosen of Smule (#TCOS)
  • Latin Voices Smule Festival (#LVSF)
  • Sing Rio 2016 (# SR16)
  • Smule World Championship (#SWC)
  • The X Factor Latino (#TXF)
  • Smule Grand Prix (#SGPriX)

Latin Voices has an official Smule account: (@_LatinVoices_), where we always open Auditions from different subgroups for the people who want to join the family. That or they can find auditions from the Smule accounts of the administrators. We also have an official fan page on Facebook where we post events related to the music and with Smule to our members and followers. In addition, we also upload group song videos that we have prepared in our YouTube channel (Latin Voices).

This community has also supported similar ones such as the new community of Peruvian Singers in Smule: “Smule Peru” and Mexican Singers “Smule Mexico”, and will continue supporting other groups that are soon to develop.

Latin Voices Smule Community will continue to grow and develop the community so new users can realize that “Sing!” is not a simple Karaoke App, it means much more, it means “Family”, it means enjoying and making friends around the world and having fun singing with them whether it be duet songs, group songs, fun musical challenges or even in birthday songs.

If you want more information about this community, send us a message on our Smule account: (https://www.smule.com/_LatinVoices_) or find us on Facebook as @ Latin.Voices.Official (https: //www.facebook. Com / Latin.Voices.Official) do send us a message if you are interested in joining this community of singers in Smule.

Top Elite Singers Tournament (TEST) – Winner!

testtt
ONE OF THE BIGGEST COMPETITION IN SOLO CATEGORY ON SMULE  – Top Elite Singers Tournament (TEST) hosted by the Alpha Voices Elite (AVE) group has finally marked the completion of its first season.
From among 1,900 auditions, the first round started with more than 400 contestants. It was a fun competition with new themes prepared by the leaders of AVE. It had nine rounds each of which had its own twist and had made the contestants’ Smule experience a learning one.
AVE is happy to end this competition while it also celebrates its first founding anniversary with 41 members. Group songs are being recorded at the moment to spice up the momentuous event in the group.
Back to the competition, the winner hails from the land of the white eagle – Poland. This is her final message:
“I always loved to sing! But when i started being an actual adult (what a trap…) i started to have 100 times more responsibilities, and my singing was evolving only during long showers or cleaning.. 😂 and then, a year ago, I found this app called “smule”. And i’m not joking, it changed my life for good. Singing made me so much more relaxed, less stressed, more confident… Seriously! It has just one tiny flaw – my neighbours started to hate me 😂  This is why I chose this song. My final song suppose to tell about my singing experience, and after a long long research I decided to sing “You raise me up” because I think it exacly shows how I feel about singing.  I never feel stronger than when i sing – when I do, i feel complete 😉Once again – thank you all – the judges and participants – for this journey.. It was so amazing, inspiring and I learned soooooo much from all of you! Im am really happy I could know all of you guys! Thank you very, very much!  May we meet again 😘 This TEST was an experience which changed my game on smule forever… 😊” – @MagdaxSings
And her entry:
Here are the Top 4, by order of rank:
2nd Place  – @qwoel
3rd Place – @KSunshine and @_MSD_
4th Place – @S1B_Bayu

Smule Presents: Marie Iver

Optimized-Screen Shot 2017-06-06 at 11.22.38 AM

Smule Presents: Marie Iver

Last year we ran a program called Smule Presents for a year – where we highlighted our talented users through music videos to showcase our users in their creative light alongside working with the Smule Studio production team led by Alyce Tzue. You can find those videos here. During one of the last videos we presented, we flew her on alongside with 3 others around the globe to sing a mashup of two songs. You can find the video here (it’s pretty amazing.) This was a mash-up of “One Call Away” and “Love Yourself.” Over the new couple months, we will post all of the four individual videos we made while they were here (so maybe, more mini- Smule Presents)!
You can find their experience on Smule Presents here!
Second up: Maddy (stage name Marie) who has been singing most of her life. Read more about her below! :)
1) Why did you pick the song you sang? 
I chose to do West Coast by Lana Del Rey for this project because she’s one of my favorite artists and I love her work. Her music is entrancing, electric, sexy and unlike anything out there right now in my opinion so I tried to honor that as best as I could.
2) What challenges do you see as an upcoming artist? 
The music business is so fickle nowadays. You never really know what’s going to get people’s attention. Plus there’s a million other talented young artists who have the exact same goals as me which can be intimidating, so it was really rewarding and encouraging to be recognized by Smule in such an exclusive way. I got the chance to do what I love most with great people and hopefully it will help me continue to make my voice heard and achieve my goals as a musician.
3) What is your favorite kind of style to sing? 
Personally I like to veer away from choosing a specific “kind” of music to focus on. I grew up listening to classic rock, I love blues, folk, jazz, R&B, and really anything I can get my hands on (or voice on, more accurately) and I’m lucky in that way because having a wide range of interests shapes you into a more versatile artist.
4) What are your musical goals? 
As far as goals for myself and my musical career go, I don’t plan on backing down until I become one of the greats to be frank. Music is my life, my focus and my favorite parts of myself revolve around it so all I can really say is that I expect big things from myself and I’m not going to stop until the rest of the world does too. I hope that doesn’t sound pretentious, it’s just the truth!
5) Where can people follow you? 
If you want to see and hear more of what I’m working on, feel free to follow my Instagram: username @marie_iver (my stage name). Thanks!
