SING OLYMPICS 2017

SO

Every time I am asked to talk about what Sing Olympics is, I just explain how it is a group competition where every group gets to have a representative in different categories, singing different music styles and genres. Then, I go into detail on how it works, how our ranking judging system works, how many rounds we do, etcetera. But Sing Olympics is so much more than a competition. This has become one of the most anticipated events in the Smule community. This being our third year, we have so many people that have been preparing themselves and their teams in the past year, to be able to do their best in the competition, and that is amazing! I thank every single one of you, for the investment and effort you have put into it, it makes it all worth it for us on the other side.

Just so you can understand better, Sing Olympics is the type of competition where someone goes, joins the staff to get inside information, waits months because I do not release anything until days before, then tries to like super spy on the staff documents to obtain information before others, because they just can’t wait. We even had someone go into our website editor just looking to see if there was something there! It’s crazy! hahaha “true story” and I was upset, because I want this to be a fair competition for every single group that joins us, but… if you think about it, it is kind of funny what people would do to start strategizing.

I can’t even remember how the SO staff became a team at first, since I didn’t know well any of them, but we are still strong on our third year Lulu, Tyler, Renee & Tori, have been there since start and together we work all of the magic that makes this 12 in 1 competition happen. Because you know that Sing Olympics is literally 12 competitions happening at the same time, with different sets of judges and competitors, right? We have new members in our staff which we are excited to have, since they have been helping us so much: Josh, Erica, Charlotte, John, Talia and Yumi are very appreciated. We hope our staff can give everyone the experience they hope for and more.

This yearly project, is really a lot of work, but it becomes nothing when you see all the excitement it brings. Seeing everyone come together to form teams, hearing such variety of voices, bringing people I’ve never met or heard before, groups being exposed to the community, everyone supporting each others music, the very repetitive and annoying, but still funny questions that are done 20 times in 5 minutes in leaders chat, everyone with their super cool Sing Olympics badge that represents their team, it really is gratifying. Last year we had 161 teams registered, this year we said… we have to downsize let’s limit one team per group… and still we got 120 teams registered of 11 to 13 members each, I guess the word has been spread, and there is nothing we can do about it. But we are glad to have every single one of you!

I am very proud about what my team and I have created, and I hope that everyone haves an amazing time, creates exciting new music, and pushes themselves to do the best they can.

Now to the good stuff, we will be having through the competition, updates on the playlist that is on the Smule app. If you want to listen to all the songs we will be making, make sure to check #SO2017.

Group Spotlight: LATIN VOICES SMULE COMMUNITY

IMG_3337

LATIN VOICES SMULE COMMUNITY

Latin Voices Smule Community is more than a simple group; it is a large family that encompasses not only Latino and Hispanic people, but also Smule users around the world of all ages, this is because we have been developing subgroups during these two years and a little more than four months approximately.

Latin Voices was created by Sing! User: Diego (@Paulizinho) with Arizbel the 5th of February 2015. We have a solid, creative, innovative and dynamic organization and a staff of vocal trainers who help every day in making this community grow. We always have fun with singing events in Smule, and we share knowledge with everyone. The most important part is that we try our best to make them feel happy and we administer unity as of that of a family.

The great Administration is composed of the following:

Founder: Diego (@Paulizinho), Co-Founder: Juaner (@JuanerLaRiva), Co-Founder: Kerenha (@Kerenha), Leaders: Yuleny (@ LV_YulyFlores1), Helard (@HelardBejarano), Magdy (@ magdy78), Cristhy @_CS_Cris_LV _SMx_), Laura (@LV_Arual), Gloria (@canchitalinda), Roberta (@TUSC_Roby), Alejandro (@SLG_Alejandro_LV), Javier (@ Javierluis_19), Talita (@talita_naf_LV).

Latin Voices has the following subgroups available:

  • LATIN VOICES (SMULE FAMILY): Latin / Hispanic Smule Family.
  • LATIN VOICES (BRAZIL): Brazilian Smule Family.
  • LOVE OF MUSIC (LV ENGLISH): English Group.
  • LATIN VOICES MUSIC UNIVERSITY (11-15 TEENS FAMILY).

Each subgroup is segmented by language and we create music events in Smule like group songs, musical challenges, and other activities.

In the midst of all these activities, Latin Voices has also hosted singing competitions in Smule that brought together Latin, Hispanic, Indonesian, American and other ethnicities worldwide to discover the talent of other users from this excellent karaoke app.

The competitions that we have created and developed are:

  • The Vocal Games (#TVG)
  • The Choosen of Smule (#TCOS)
  • Latin Voices Smule Festival (#LVSF)
  • Sing Rio 2016 (# SR16)
  • Smule World Championship (#SWC)
  • The X Factor Latino (#TXF)
  • Smule Grand Prix (#SGPriX)

Latin Voices has an official Smule account: (@_LatinVoices_), where we always open Auditions from different subgroups for the people who want to join the family. That or they can find auditions from the Smule accounts of the administrators. We also have an official fan page on Facebook where we post events related to the music and with Smule to our members and followers. In addition, we also upload group song videos that we have prepared in our YouTube channel (Latin Voices).

This community has also supported similar ones such as the new community of Peruvian Singers in Smule: “Smule Peru” and Mexican Singers “Smule Mexico”, and will continue supporting other groups that are soon to develop.

Latin Voices Smule Community will continue to grow and develop the community so new users can realize that “Sing!” is not a simple Karaoke App, it means much more, it means “Family”, it means enjoying and making friends around the world and having fun singing with them whether it be duet songs, group songs, fun musical challenges or even in birthday songs.

If you want more information about this community, send us a message on our Smule account: (https://www.smule.com/_LatinVoices_) or find us on Facebook as @ Latin.Voices.Official (https: //www.facebook. Com / Latin.Voices.Official) do send us a message if you are interested in joining this community of singers in Smule.

Let’s enjoy singing together as a family!

Top Elite Singers Tournament (TEST) – Winner!

testtt
ONE OF THE BIGGEST COMPETITION IN SOLO CATEGORY ON SMULE  – Top Elite Singers Tournament (TEST) hosted by the Alpha Voices Elite (AVE) group has finally marked the completion of its first season.
From among 1,900 auditions, the first round started with more than 400 contestants. It was a fun competition with new themes prepared by the leaders of AVE. It had nine rounds each of which had its own twist and had made the contestants’ Smule experience a learning one.
AVE is happy to end this competition while it also celebrates its first founding anniversary with 41 members. Group songs are being recorded at the moment to spice up the momentuous event in the group.
Back to the competition, the winner hails from the land of the white eagle – Poland. This is her final message:
“I always loved to sing! But when i started being an actual adult (what a trap…) i started to have 100 times more responsibilities, and my singing was evolving only during long showers or cleaning.. 😂 and then, a year ago, I found this app called “smule”. And i’m not joking, it changed my life for good. Singing made me so much more relaxed, less stressed, more confident… Seriously! It has just one tiny flaw – my neighbours started to hate me 😂  This is why I chose this song. My final song suppose to tell about my singing experience, and after a long long research I decided to sing “You raise me up” because I think it exacly shows how I feel about singing.  I never feel stronger than when i sing – when I do, i feel complete 😉Once again – thank you all – the judges and participants – for this journey.. It was so amazing, inspiring and I learned soooooo much from all of you! Im am really happy I could know all of you guys! Thank you very, very much!  May we meet again 😘 This TEST was an experience which changed my game on smule forever… 😊” – @MagdaxSings
And her entry:
Here are the Top 4, by order of rank:
2nd Place  – @qwoel
3rd Place – @KSunshine and @_MSD_
4th Place – @S1B_Bayu
Check their entries by following #AVETheFinalTest
Once again, thanks to all who participated and helped in making TEST Season 1 a success. And congratulations to all winners!
