Optimized-PicsArt_04-03-06.20.08 (1)
Thank you Smule for bringing us together. This Meetup really was a Family Meetup. We felt like we’ve known each other for forever. We will never forget this Weekend. We live for Music, live for singing and now we also live for this Family. This is real love. We had so much fun, we shared Tears, it was amazing. This connection is unbelievable. Nobody will ever understand this feeling of Love. This group really is not only a group. Every single one is wonderful. You can’t describe that in words. But in these Persons you find: Authenticity, Empathy, Sincerity, Respect, true Love and social Engagement. It doesn’t matter how old you are… it doesn’t matter if you are a women or a man. It doesn’t matter where you’re from.  We come from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It doesn’t matter if you are fat, thin, ugly or beautiful. You are accepted as the one you are. This is a family, in which is helped without hesitation. Music connected. We have a base together which is based on so much cordiality, fun and love. Without smule we wouldn’t have found each other. Strangers has become Souls. Thank you Smule!!!!

ACE Meet-Up 2017

Ace-meet01

ACE Meet-Up

Finally the day had arrived! The day so many ACEs had been waiting for! Several members of the Sing group ACE Recordings had been saving for up to a year to be able to go to Liverpool on the weekend of March 24th to 26th.

The whole idea had come about when ACE_Stew77 extended an invitation to all ACE members for his 40th birthday. Due to his love of The Beatles, Stew had chosen Liverpool, birthplace of The Fab Four, to celebrate. So along with that and the fact that the city is steeped in Musical history, it made it a perfect destination for a S!NG group Meet-up. Who could say no?! …The rest they say is history!

Between the Friday and the Saturday, one by one the ACEs arrived, each one incredibly excited about the weekend.

People flew in from Germany, Sweden, Norway and even the USA! Several of the members have known each other for 3 or so years and have become close friends in that time so being able to meet in person for the first time was genuinely special. People talk daily on the app so it was just so comfortable and natural.

The Saturday in Liverpool was planned out with some ACEs booking on to the city’s famous Magical Mystery Tour, a tour of all the Beatles hotspots. Whilst others opted to get to know the city better with a little light shopping. However, in the evening everyone came back together again to celebrate Stews big 4-0. It was time to party, starting with a birthday dinner for Stew.

Then the ACEs hit the world famous Cavern Club! The club has been host to many famous acts, obviously starting with The Beatles but other acts over the years have included The Rolling Stones, Oasis and even more recently, Adele. It is definitely a very special place for people with an interest in music.

The rest of the weekend was filled with partying, singing, eating, having fun and getting to know each other even better. It was an incredible time shared with incredible people, and now the next ACE meet-up is already in planning! It was a sensational experience, something we all highly recommend.

Here is a few quotes about the weekend from some of the members:

“It was a like a family reunion! You guys are such a huge part of my life and it was amazing to laugh, drink and hang out with you all!”
– ACE_Stew77

“I hope to repeat the experience 20 000 more times!”
– ACE_Fabsinger90

“Everyone was so much fun, and just awesome company. I wish I didn’t drink so much! Don’t remember a lot from Saturday, except from waking up on a kebab!”
– ACE_Rapunzel

“My favorite part of the weekend was when I saw the happiness between ACEs when they met.”
– ACE_Peter

“My only regret is that there wasn’t more time! I love all of you so much and I can’t wait until the next meet-up!”
– ACE_oneluvkell

“It’s a weekend I shall never forget. I can honestly say I’ve never laughed so much or so hard over the course of 48 hours. It was the people that made it the most magical. I was able to meet some of my best friends and that was priceless.”
– ACE_BethanyGrace

Thank you, Smule! Without S!NG, none of us would have ever met!
