singtopia

Many of you already know about the largest Sing! oriented group on Facebook, known as Singtopia! Singtopia has been with us since the beginning with the mission to connect, engage and empower singers all around the world in one place. Over the 4 years, Singtopia has done so much to keep their community engaged – and they do it exceptionally well. Celebrating groups in Sing!, hosting frequent contests, featuring international communities, answering FAQ, and more!

Today, and the next two weeks, we will celebrate the members who make Singtopia the wonderful community it is today, and the admins who built it. Singtopia is serving over 8,000 singers, which has doubled since their last anniversary. The community is growing. Each person has to be approved by an admin, or suggested by a friend making the community a tight group of people with the same vision.

Over the past year Singtopia has developed and up kept many programs, making their group so successful and fun – so stay engaged and active in Singtopia! Take a look at the some of the fun things they have done in the past year:

  • Annual huge Halloween Contest
  • Anniversary and 12 Days of Christmas celebration, which includes prizes and features
  • Contributors in Smule Picks weekly challenge and partner artist program
  • Coffee Talk LIVE with Adrian was created to reach out to members and get to know them a little better!
  • Singtopia International Mixers provide members the opportunity to sing with others globally to create amazing multi-lingual collaborations.
  • Hidden Gem Program continues to seek out Undiscovered Talent within the Sing! Community.

So much ongoing engagement, so what will their focus be next and where do they plan to grow? Maria, Co-creator, says, “As we move into our 4th year in Singtopia, community engagement and programming have been a huge focus. Welcoming new members to a mix of amazing talent, young and old and to have a chance to experience a fun, lively, active community is what Singtopia is all about! Singtopia is a community where members can share their music, participate in fun activities and events and make Sing! friends from all across the globe!”

So, where Singtopia will expect to grow in the next year:

  • Community Songbook involvement with some amazing upcoming programs
  • Singtopia Feature Program Revamp
  • New Singtopia Musician’s Lounge Programming

How has Singtopia grown in the past year?

This year has been exciting for us as a community. Singtopia has grown tremendously in participation, as we are over 4200 members strong.  With a group this large we focus on keeping things fun and maintain our programming goals that our members have come to appreciate over the years

This year we also saw many members come together to support one another through personal triumphs, worldwide tragedies and philanthropy. The outpour of support for our admin, Adrian, who is battling Pancreatic Cancer, has been tremendous through music and community. The tributes and dedications that were shared for world peace and for our members in need have been amazing! We have truly grown into such a caring and compassionate community and will continue to do so in the future.

 

What accomplishments have you made?

Singtopia is a great place for many singers to come together and celebrate each other’s passion.  We saw MANY exciting adventures from our talented members and are proud to showcase their accomplishments allowing thousands to come together and support one another.  Supporting our musicians, original songwriters, emerging artists. Singtopia continues to support our fabulous musicians, original songwriters and emerging artists in their endeavors into the music industry. 

This year we had the honor to place in the TOP 5 of the #GVContest hosted by Smule, showcasing the new video feature on the app. Singtopia dedicated their performance to #TeamPanCan in support for PanCan.org and our admin, Adrian. Being a part of Top 5, Smule generously donated to all of our causes. We are very proud that as a community we were able to make this happen. 

 

What are the highlights of your community?

New to Singtopia this year is our Singtopia Musician’s Lounge, SML, which is a hub for musicians all over the world. This group was formed to showcase the many talented instrumentalists in Sing! who put their time and energy into creating music for all of us to enjoy. You can find many of our members’ acoustic versions in the Community Songbook as well as Singtopia Musician’s Lounge on Facebook.

Singtopia is known for searching out some amazing talent that you hear in the Sing! App today.  One of the highlights of Singtopia continues to be our Feature Program showcasing solo artists, Sing! groups, competition winners as well as spotlight emerging artists from the community.

Smule Stories …

Smule Stories are Your Stories

There are very few things at Smule that we are more proud of than this special community that has grown from our mutual love of music. We stumble upon the most amazing stories within our community, from how Smule has touched the lives of users to how different community members have connected through Smule.

Last week, we uncovered a special new program for the Smule community called Smule Presents, which allows us to highlight Smule users through music videos. Today, in a similar but more personal vein, we are introducing Smule Stories, another program that highlights you but focuses on telling your unique story through a mini documentary.

The video above is a small introduction to Smule Stories! For this intro, we wanted to speak with users all over the world so we interviewed them via Skype. For ongoing Smule Stories videos, we will be sending out the Smule Studio crew to interview you in person and record a professional 5-minute documentary.

Do you have a Smule story? Please let us know! Here are some questions that may inspire you to share your story: How has music and Smule changed your life? Did you meet someone special on Smule? Has music and Smule helped you overcome challenges or hardships?

Please send a short summary of your story and the best way to contact you via email tocommunity@smule.com.  We look forward to hearing your own special Smule story!

Stay tuned for Kallie’s story (@kalliestarmusic) coming out in January!
