SWC Winner announced!

SWC IMAGEN CHAMPION

DVOCALIST SUPERB: THE NEW SWC CHAMPION 2017!

The Latin Voices Smule Community presents the new absolute champion of Sing! competition “Smule World Championship 2017”  that took place during the months of July, August and September.

The Indonesian Team DVocalist Superb managed to become the reigning champion of SWC 2017, winning in “The Global Final” against the team LATIN VOICES CHIMERAS. Let’s review the glorious path of this team full of talented guys who enjoyed singing like each of us in Sing!

DVocalist Superb is formed by a group of 10 vocalists (Tri, Widi, Olive, Cincin, Hilda, Ega, Hexa, Venny, Bhisma & Septi) and was led by Olive they gave it their all with only one objective in mind: To become the champions of SWC 2017. The team signed up for the English version of SWC 2017 and was assigned to Zone 1-List A along with five other teams to compete against. This was the first challenge of DVocalist Superb. First, they knew they had to qualify for the next round and that included being among the top two in List A.

Although in the beginning it was a hard challenge due to the high amount of competitive talent, they managed to finally classify and advance to the next round and from that moment on for the remainder of the competitive weeks they continued a successful triumphant path getting much more closer to their goal. The team never gave up until becoming champions of Zone 1 of the English Version of SWC 2017.

To their surprise the team ended up against one of their own family, DVocalist Platinum whom were champions of Zone 2 and they both had to battle it out for the title of the English version. Finally they were able to break their limits to finally become the champions of the English version.

Still there was a final step; which was what the group had anxiously awaited since the beginning of the competition. DVocalist Superb had to go up against the representative of the Spanish version SWC 2017 Latin Voices Chimeras for the biggest title The Absolute Champion  SWC 2017. The team of 10 talented vocalists had only 2 weeks to prepare and sing a group song and was required to present on the day of the final. They finally presented a song in the Mashup category: “Bird set Free” obtaining great results and having been elected by the judges of the competition. The epic moment had finally come, the judges had to announce the results and the group became the absolute reigning champion of SWC 2017. Congratulations team!!!

As part of the organization of this competition we would also like to congratulate the champion of Zone 2 of the English Version: DVocalist Platinum, Latin Voices Chimeras for representing the Spanish Version and especially to all of the 192 teams. Also the judges who participated in this second edition of Smule World Championship. To finalize, we leave you with the winning group song from DVocalist Superb to enjoy:

“Bird Set Free (Mashup)” – (The Global Final) winning song

We will see you in 2018!

Sing Olympics 2017 – The Results

singg

Sing Olympics Winners 2017 

I was sitting on Vaios’ couch as we are doing the live stream for the Sing Olympics results on his youtube channel, and even though I knew who the winners were, I hadn’t listened fully to all the performances. At that moment, I was so impressed by the talent this competition brings together, and everything that we were doing celebrating it! At that moment I was really proud of what we were able to bring to the community. This is our second year with Pu’ukani hosting a show exclusively for Sing Olympics and releasing live results on his radio station www.pipeline2paradise.com. I have to say, it’s the most fun I have in this competition, actually getting to sit down, listen to all these amazing performances, knowing people from all over the world are gathering to listen too, gives me great satisfaction to be a part of it.

It is at this moment also that I realize it’s all completely worth it. Lulu @W0nderSparkle, Tyler @iSuperTC_Vicious, Renee @iSuperRenee, and I have been there 3 years of this competition, working really hard, and sometimes we can feel the pressure of all the work it is, but with the help of the rest of the staff, including this year with Charlotte @ACE_Charlotte, John @iSuperJohn, Josh @LOM_Joshy, Erica @eggysue, Yumi @itsyumibabyyy, Tori @_T0riPvP_ & our newest member Zaf @_MuTaS_, it was all possible. I thank every single person that helped out bringing this plan, that was quite complicated, to life.

What is Sing Olympics? If you don’t know, I think you should experience it. Most people describe it as the most stressful competition they have been in. Why? Because of the caliber of competitors that gather to go against each other, we have people who do amazing performances on the app, against people that actually do this for a living, or should be, and they all face the same challenges. It’s also 12 competitions in one, each one with a different music style or genre. And each competition is linked by participants being part of a team who accumulate points together. You compete for yourself, and for your group. The difference between being in a single competition, and Sing Olympics, is that whatever happens you have a whole group of people counting on you to represent them. And that’s where the pressure comes. However, it’s very rewarding, only consists of 4 rounds, and it can be fun!

A word from some of the Champs from Sing Olympics 2017

“Sing Olympics is unreal! Many people around the world have the opportunity to showcase their talents with the app! Personally, it helped me by pushing me to put my material out there. Pushed my boundaries and I’m proud of what I have done! I’m happy I participated and kept it going! Learned a lot about myself in the process” -Mirla
@MirlaLuna – Songwriting Champ

“Singing is my escape from whatever is going on in my life. Whatever emotions I feel, I release them in the lyrics where happy or sad. This was my very first competition and I’m so happy I was asked to do Sing Olympics because it taught me SO MUCH about control” -Terry
@TerryKaye – Soul Train Champ

“This year, I was so excited for Sing Olympics! I love the unexpected, so the Mystery category was a perfect experience for me. Every week, being thrown into something new and different, stretched my creativity and gave me the opportunity to make awesome music!” -Carissa Bennett
@CarissaBennettSings – Mystery Champ

“Sing Olympics definitely pushed me to think quickly and execute. Also, enduring this competition has made me appreciate how much effort and planning it takes to perform acapellas. But most importantly, Sing Olympics really opened my eyes (and ears) to the AMAZING talent in this community. For that, I am truly thankful!” -Alex
@AlexP_VE – Acapella Champ

“I was so happy to see that Sing Olympics included the Classical category again this year! It’s a wonderful way for those in Smule’s small classical community to compete and share their voices, that they have worked their whole lives, with the world. I hope it encourages those who may have maybe forgotten the joy of the classical music, to begin exploring this genre on the app. Thank you Sing Olympics for this outlet and your dedication to promoting all genres of music on Smule!” -Stephanie Rhodes
@StephanieLRhodes – Classical Champ

“Another amazing year of Sing Olympics, and another year of making some new incredible friends, creating and listening to some mind blowing entries, and being challenged to do new and inspiring music that in the end I was very proud of! Looking forward to next year!” -Sarah Cleary
@SarahCleary – Classical Champ

“The Best went home with Gold. The great stayed until the finals. The good tried their best. The losers quit…” – Xavier Calvillo
@ZaveTheWorld – Punk Champ

“It was an awesome experience to be a part of the Sing Olympics. I’m truly honored to have been able to captain and represent TheSound this year, and look forward to what next season brings.” -Theron Fox
@TheSound_Theron – Acoustics Champ

“It was the first competition for me on Smule. I took the category “songwriting” to see if I was able to write a song in 5 days! I have been writing for 5 months and I learned a lot of things with Sing Olympics. I’m french, I don’t speak English, it was a challenge for me to write in this language! I had fun! But I think the best was to listen to all the amazing talents! I downloaded every song. Thank you to all judges, thank you SING OLYMPICS!” – Aileen Murphy
@AILEEN_MURPHY – Songwriting Champ

The champs this year a variety of smulers, those who dedicate themselves to compete in the app, others whose first time becomes the one where they took “the gold”, and those who’ve won multiple times before like Jessica or Valli from The Voices. Check out our playlist before it’s gone, you won’t regret it. The talent is undeniable in this group of people & don’t miss the chance to compete next year!

Follow the Champs of Sing Olympics 2017!

Memories of Smule Tarang 2017

IMG_7245 (1)

Have you ever felt stressed out and heard a beautiful song and experience the stress melt away?? Have you ever felt like hopping just singing along with a peppy song??
Wouldn’t you love to do that everyday?
One has to start singing on Smule to know what joy and happiness it brings.
The exhilaration of doing an oc.. the excitement to see likes and comments and then the pleasurable task of listening to various people join.. never before was homework done with so much zeal.
We at Smule are a new breed… melting our sorrows and stresses away by singing our hearts out and that’s how we have become an extended family.
This virtual singing experience has been so awesomely rewarding that we decided to come together for real and connect with the people behind those beautiful voices.
This was like a dream that came true for 150+ Smuleans that met after an year of singing with each other. It was surreal and the experience is still sinking in… Its a very special thing when a group of people who have only sung together and never physically met, come together.
What an incredible evening it was at the Smule meet on 23rd July in Kochi (Kerala). Over 150 Smuleans from different parts of Kerala participated in this event of nonstop fun, singing and entertainment. Most of them met in person for the first time.  It was one of the most enjoyable musical events, we have ever attended” most of them said.
It all started a few months back with an idea of a small get-together among few Smuleans and there was no looking back since then. Ideas started flowing in and finally Smule Tarang Meet in Kochi(Kerala), started to take shape.
We also wanted this to be a purpose driven meet that would benefit some really talented singers. Through this meetup plan, we had been searching for 7 new singers for 2 upcoming movies; one in Tamil where we needed 5 singers and 2 singers for a Malayalam movie. And we have successfully made the number.
After months of meticulous planning and preparation by the team, the day finally arrived.
Star Choyz Convention Centre was the place, which was chosen for much awaited event. It had all arrangements to welcome the most desired Smuleans. Venue hall and stage was
 nicely decorated using Smule Tarang theme colours and lights. Sound Engineer was all ready to provide the best experience. Incredible amount of planning went in right from
choosing the venue, finalizing sound engineering, cameramen, deciding on the agenda, games, dances, anchor, song selection, pairing the singing partners and of-course
 deciding on the lunch menu in addition to many other logistics.
By 10 a.m everybdy had arrived the venue And as the beautiful faces started arriving, it never appeared that  fellow Smuleans were meeting for the first time.
The bond people shared was quite evident from the smiles on their faces.Everybody enjoyed taking pictures and seflies with their known friends, their beloved
singers whom they admire and always wanted to meet.
We were also lucky enough to have some celebrity guests in our show who included
-Idea Star Singer(2007) participants Imran Khan and Durgalakshmi,
– Malayalam actor and singer Fazal Razi
– Actor Raj Kiran
– Music Director & play back singer Sumesh etc
A voice then announced “Are we ready ??”….That was our Emcee of the day who appeared in front of the crowd. The loud cheer and  confident smiles responded “ Yes”.
It all started with lighting the lamp, for which our beloved celebrity guests and committee members were called upon the stage.
Thereafter the entire day was packed with remarkable performances one after another, by each and every Smulean. The crowd witnessed around 50+ captivating
 singing performances with each song cheered by entire audience.
Other variety programs like “Spot Dubbing” & “Dubsmash & Dance” in between were like icing on the cake with some best humorous moments coming while enacting. Throughout the event,
guests enjoyed some delicious Indian cuisines and exotic drinks.
We also had a famous film choreographer with his group in our show doing an extraordinary performance. They had the attitude, they got the moves and they rocked stage too.
He is no other than Jobin George.
The whole program was being captured on high end cameras. Many singers in front of cameras got butterflies at first. But thankfully the entire cast and crew made it extremely comfortable.
Shooting the video and sharing memorable moments while doing so reminded me that often all you need is friendship, big belly laughs and a good song to sing along to.
The time just flew by and it was time to wind the day up and for everyone to say their “Goodbyes.” No-one wanted to leave though.
All the singers at last were given Smule Tarang’s momentum sponsored by Prism Entertainments before heading separate ways.
Great effort by each and every participant of this event. it was very obvious that everybody had put in their heart and soul to make this event a grand success.
Lets congratulate the entire team for such a hard-work, planning and preparation, to make this event so successful. Kudos Smuleans!!
As rightly said by Smule singer – “Machan! Machan! Machan! Smule dhane Semma Trendu… Vazhvai vellum indha kalathin semma Routeu” :-)
