Sing “Castle on the Hill” with Ed Sheeran on Sing!

Sing “Castle on the Hill” with Ed Sheeran on Sing!

There’s no key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.” – Ed Sheeran

You asked for it and we listened. One of the most requested partner artists you all have requested- Ed Sheeran, the self-made musician from Framlingham, Suffolk is now available so sing with. His career began in 2004 where he began recording his own music. Throughout the course of a couple years, Sheeran began singing in open studios and open mic shows. In 2010 he bought a ticket to Los Angeles, not knowing a single soul, where he did the same thing and did open mics throughout the city. Shortly after, he was spotted by Jamie Foxx and The Foxxhole. Foxx actually offered him his very own studio and bedroom for the remainder of his stay. Fast forward to 2011, when he released “The A Team” which sold 801,000 copies globally. His singles and albums have skyrocketed since and has been nominated for 104 awards and winning 42 awards including 2 grammys!

Sheeran had two albums that have spent 16 weeks sitting on billboard’s number 1 spot, and 3 of his singles sitting at the number 1 spot for 10 weeks.

Random fact:

Sheeran bought a farm in Suffolk where he is hoping to raise his family.

Introducing Monthly User Picks Playlist with Chanticleer for March!

 

Pasted image at 2017_02_27 03_15 PM

To celebrate and find on our talented community, we decided to take it to the ones who knows it best. The community! Each month we will have a user to curate and feature stars, talent and overall passionate singers and entertainers. Introducing Monthly User Picks Playlist!

How does it work?

Each month we take a user who excels in a category (Jazz, CosPlay, acoustic, instrumentals, accapella etc) and leave it to them to operate a playlist on our explore screen in the Sing! App.

We will be announcing the personality a week before the new month and the playlist has started so feel free to reach out to that personality if you have related performances you think deserved to be featured. It’s up to the personality on how often the playlist will be changed. We are expecting it to be rotated 2-4 times/month.

Categories examples can be acoustic, musician, cos-play, Jazz, etc.

 

For the month of February, we are featuring @Chanticleer!

Chanticleer has been on the app for about 2 years, in those two years she grew an identity- an Identity surrounding cosplay and going all out! Not just with costumes, but the WHOLE 9 yards- wigs, glasses specialized for her outfits, body paint, backgrounds, etc.

Beyond her outfit, she demonstrates and supports that fact that it’s just fine to be yourself. As they say, “Be yourself because everybody else is taken.”

It’s clear she values an inclusive, positive community and she has built and shaped an entire community around cos-play, do-ers, music lovers, costume lovers and people who just want to have fun. She’s a unicorn inside and out!  

This month we celebrate her as she features her favorite performances she has seen over her time her.

SMULENESIANS 4th ANNIVERSARY GATHERING – 2017

** Community Post **

Smulenesians, the biggest Smule community in Indonesia, must be proud. Because this year in 2017, they celebrate their 4th anniversary. The community was established in January 14, 2013 and continues to grow rapidly since then. Currently, it has more than 1800 official members.

SmuleNesians successfully held their anniversary celebration on February 5, 2017. Located at Eleven Trees Café, Jakarta – Indonesia, more than 80 members were happy to come to the gathering. Unpredictable weather didn’t deter the spirit and enthusiasm of the members to attend and participate in this annual event.

The event started at 11:00 AM. The guests were asked to register themselves in advance, and then they were having lunch together with the buffet menus from the café. Warm impression felt at the luncheon that time. The guests greeted each other, and there were also laughter. There was no distance at all among them.

The gathering was hosted by MC @AndyLeeGouw. The founder of SmuleNesians, @iKingYamosGani gave speech first, followed by one of the SmuleNesians Leaders for second generation, @Ariyanti. There was also an introduction of the new leaders for third generation, they are @Achieoseven, @NehemiaHelmy, and @Ozzy_Genjrit.

A rousing welcome was given to all new three SmuleNesians Leaders. They bring a big responsibility to continue what former leaders did, to make SmuleNesians into a medium or community that can accommodate and bridge the musical talents of its members to be better. Surely this can be achieved not only from the hard work of the leaders, but also by the support and participation from the members.

After all speeches and introduction of the new leaders, everybody couldn’t wait for the ceremonial, to blow candles on the anniversary cake and cut the cake. Then the founder gave the first piece of the cake to the new leaders.

As a community that originated from Smule, it is certainly incomplete, if we don’t sing together at least one track on Smule Sing! app. All the guests did a mass karaoke and sang together at the moment, covering a song from Mr. Big, To Be With You. It was recorded on Smule Sing! video. The people were organized and divided into three groups to do lead vocal, harmonies, and adlibs.

You can also see the mass karaoke here in official Smule Sing! account of @SmuleNesians:

https://www.smule.com/recording/to-be-with-you-mr-big/112136744_998016502

Everybody was so happy to meet, knowing each other directly outside Smule, and sing together on the gathering.

Last but not least, we hope that in the future SmuleNesians could be growing in both quality and quantity of the members. It is expected to become a community that can be reckoned with in music world, especially Indonesia. Success for all of us!
