Smule Local Meet Up 2015

Smule Local Meet Up 2015 

smule local

Smule meet ups are very special to the Smule community because it forms another more tangible way of connecting people through music. Most Sing!ers sing, connect, and get to know each other through the app on Smule. Meet ups can make those connections stronger, and well they’re also just a lot of fun. But, with life being so busy, it’s not always easy to plan and get them going.

Soooo, we thought we’d give everyone a nudge and create a day for Smulers to organize and host a Smule meet up to celebrate singing and connections live and in person with other local users! The response was awesome!

On November 7th, 2015, Smulers all over the world got together to attend a local meet up, all on the same day. There were well over 1,000 participants who collaborated, sang, ate, shared stories, danced, etc. Over the course of the event, people took part in Smule meet ups in over 50 cities across Asia, USA, Europe and Canada!

Check out all the participating cities in the photo, continue organizing meet ups, and stay tuned for more large-scale Smule meet up events in the future!

“I had an amazing time meeting everyone. It felt like we’ve known each other all our lives. It didn’t matter if you’re young or old,  we all had something in common: we all love singing! Can’t wait for the next meetup!!” – Lester, UK

“It was because of the hard works of all coordinators and the cooperation of all participants, we succeeded in holding meet ups in up to 17 cities in Indonesia. So props to all of them smile emoticon” – Ariyanti, Indonesia

“I have met long time friends and friends for life from this meet up!” – Sara, Canada

Guitar Idol Winner Abby Rzepka has Performed Live with Kenny Rogers

Guitar Idol Winner Abby Rzepka has Performed Live with Kenny Rogers

Meet Abby Rzepka, also known to the Smule community as AbbyRose3. In addition to being this week’s Guitar Idol winner for her incredible performance of “Tennis Court,”Abby has two other distinctions.

First, Abby has the largest number of followers on the Smule network – about 161,400, more than even Austin Mahone, who has 133,400 Smule followers. One of Abby’s performances even caught Austin’s ear, prompting him to comment “this is great!”

Her popularity didn’t happen overnight. Abby’s recorded a staggering 1,371 performances on Sing! Karaoke and has been a VIP for two years – “basically ever since Sing! came out,” she said in a phone conversation with Smule. “I use Sing! all the time,” she said. “It’s good to hear your voice played back so you can tweak it. It’s really helped my singing a lot.”

The second amazing thing about Abby is that she’s sung live on stage with Kenny Rogers when she was 11 years old during his Christmas concert series, performing in front of thousands of people in three cities in the midwest, where Abby is from. In 2011, she took to the stage again after successfully auditioning with a Michigan B100 country radio station to sing the National Anthem at a country concert that also featured Hunter Hayes and the Eli Young Band.

What’s next for Abby’s? She’s auditioning to be in the music program of her college. Abby’s understandably nervous about the audition, but we have a hunch she’s going to nail it.

If you spend even few seconds listening to Abby’s winning performance of “Tennis Court” below, you’d agree:
