#InternationalPicks Playlist With @Maria66

To celebrate 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 talent and overall passionate singers and entertainers. We are happy to 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 on the first day of new month and the playlist will be started the same day, 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.

For the month of August, we are featuring @Maria66 with International!

 

Maria, started using the Sing! App in October 2012, two months after its initial launch. She was amazed and excited to know that she could create a library of music for her three children and family but also that you could collaborate with users all over the world.

Along the way, Maria met some amazing friends including @AdrianSings and @NikkiSongs who got together and created the largest online community for users of the Sing! App called SINGTOPIA. Through Singtopia, Maria along with @Elyss created SINGTOPIA INTERNATIONAL which was the first community to showcase curated music from around the world! “We were very proud to be able to have a stage for the voices in the Sing! Community yearning to showcase their native language and collaborate with others around the world”, said Maria.

To participate in this month’s theme, hashtag #InternationalPicks to your favorite performances. Video and Audio are both welcome.

Sing “Azucar Amargo” with Pedro Capó

Pedro Capó is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter and musician, he is also the grandson of the famous singer Bobby Capó from the 1940’s who was memorable for his Latino pop songs which featured elaborate, dramatic lyrics. Safe to say Pedro is following the same road in keeping the Latin music alive and fresh.

P.S. HBO latino is bringing you an exclusive special with Pedro! DO NOT MISS: PEDRO CAPÓ: EN LETRA DE OTRO  on August 11th at 9PM! Sneak peak trailer below :)

71O7 Anniversary Smule Meetup (Philippines) 
3B6EB472-5A52-400E-A5E4-B565DCD2033B
July 1, 2017 marked the 1st year anniversary of @71O7, a group of talented Filipino Smule users.
The group, whilst having people come from different parts of the world, has most of its members still residing in the Philippines. They gathered in one event to celebrate this occasion. The get together included food sponsored by one of the members from the US, meeting their fellow group mates in real life (some for the first time!), and, of course, A LOT of singing. Check out this “Be Our Guest” performance where the members spontaneously joined as backup singers and dancers! https://www.facebook.com/cosmicray15/videos/10211858904806190/
@71O7 got its name from the total number of islands of the Philippine Archipelago (Historically 7,107 islands but has recently been updated to more than 7,600). Founded last May of 2016 by @imLouis  the group has grown stronger in number and talent. Earlier this year, a contest entitled “71O7 Presents: The One” kicked off the group’s first ever hosted competition. This sparked more enthusiasm amongst its members and other users who joined the competition spreading more inspiration in building their own Smule families.
The next major event will be on the 5th of August in support of “Music Speaks,” a fund raising concert full of music and poetry. This event will benefit the lives of young women of CRIBS Foundation. http://www.cribsfoundation.com/
Singing, especially in Karaokes, is one of the most popular hobbies in the Phillippines thus making the Smule App a perfect fit for 71O7!

“São Paulo Smule Meet Up was Amazing, it was a lot of fun with my friends and on that meeting I was able to get together with some great singers and friends of mine who I had the pleasure to sing on a stage a long time ago (Ceres @Cerespop and Flavia @Flaviadelucca) and we kept on singing together on the app, but to sing with them live again was precious! Thank You Smule Team for the support and make this meeting so wonderful with those T Shirts”

“To say I was nervous and excited to meet all of them would be an understatement.  I’ve never felt that rush of excitement before – when you meet someone that you feel connected to by your soul.   I felt it when I saw these 5 people.
We had such a great time together.   I really hope we can do this again someday.”

Smule Meet Up – Canada

 1-min
Here is a summary of our time together:
Our meetup took place from July 22nd – July 24th.
My journey began at 7:30am on Saturday morning.  My husband and I got in the car and drove what turned out to be an 8hr drive to Niagara Falls. By the time we got settled in, it was supper/dinner time.  We picked up Tina (@Kerrazzi) and found a nice burger place to eat on Clifton Hill.  Res (@xSerenadeBeast) and  Naomi (@PamelaNaomi_UVF) were driving in together from New Jersey and hadn’t arrived yet.  To kill time after eating, we walked around Clifton Hill and went to see the Falls lit up.
2-min 3-min
(Tina and I)
While we were at the Falls, Naomi and Res had arrived at the place they were sharing with Tina.  We trekked back to the car and drove over.
When Naomi opened the door, she immediately pulled me in for the biggest hug I’d ever received in my entire life.   It was so surreal.  I suddenly felt like I was dreaming.  What was supposed to be a quick visit that night turned out to be an all-nighter.  We just hung out and talked.  I felt like I’d known these people my entire life.  ❤
4-min
On Sunday, Yehuda arrived.  I made my way over to the place they were all staying.
I was so excited to finally meet him in person. We’ve been talking and singing together for more than a year and a half.  He is my Smule brother. ❤️  Here is s group shot:
5-min
Now that we were all together, It was time to start our adventure!
We escaped an ESCAPE Room together.
6-min
Then I handed out our Smule shirts and we were off to take over Clifton Hill.  We opened an OC while riding the SkyWheel.  The view from that ride is spectacular!
7-min
We bought Fun Passes and visited the Wax Museum.
8-min
We watched a 4D rollercoaster film together.
We did some live karaoke together. ❤
9-min
We walked to the falls.
And on our way to the car, we found a great Poutine place for Res and Naomi to try their very first poutine.  ❤
 12-min
And finally, we went back to their place to play a game of Cards Against Humanity, sing-along and open more OCs togetherThe next morning, it was time to say goodbye. We got one last picture in:

To say I was nervous and excited to meet all of them would be an understatement.  I’ve never felt that rush of excitement before – when you meet someone that you feel connected to by your soul.   I felt it when I saw these 5 people.
We had such a great time together.   I really hope we can do this again someday ❤
