Smule Stories: A Love Story

Smule is not only a great place to sing karaoke, it’s also a great place to connect. Really connect! In the past few years, we have seen people meet on Smule, fall in love, get married, and even have babies together (we call them our Smule babies here in the office) — and it’s amazing to see. We wanted to get a closer look into the life of one couple who recently had a Smule baby last year. We would like to introduce you to Juan and Jennifer, who shared their beautiful experience with us!

 

 

As part of our Smule Stories program, we send our studio crew out to a Sing! user and interview them about their Smule related story. No matter where you live in the world, if you feel like you or someone you know has a great story to share, please email us! Please be as specific as possible with your story: Community@smule.com.

 

About their experience with the Smule Stories crew:

1) How did you overall experience go?

It was amazing! We loved every second of it. We wish it could’ve been for longer. Maybe not forever, just another 2-3 years, lol jk. (Not really :p)

2) What was it like to create a video around your family?

I felt blessed that Smule and the staff were interested in our family. Yes, we have a wonderful story, but it’s not just our history. We are still living the moment and the week they were here just solidified that feeling.

3) What were your take-a-ways/highlights?

The absolute best moments were actually just knowing the team. Of course #1 was the surprise visit from Kathy, but the behind the scenes.. the knowing that Smule is seeing its “customers” as actual representatives of what Smule is about… That is bewildering to me!

4) Most challenging thing in the process?

The most challenging part of the process actually was coming to terms that it was only for that short amount of time. We honestly hope to see you all again.

Smule Story: Kallie Star

Smule Story: Kallie Star

Last month we introduced “Smule Stories,” a project created to highlight the many unique and amazing individuals on Smule. We know that behind every Smule musician is a life rich with stories that have shaped who they are today. We are incredibly honored when we can be a part of those stories. The first in our Smule Stories collection features Smule community member, Kallie Star Lind!

Kallie shared the news of her devastating car accident on a Smule Sing! video. In the video, she recounted what had happened as well as the difficult aftermath. Her positive attitude and passion for singing touched us all, and her story had us all appreciating life more. You can watch her story in the video above, and learn more about her experience making the video below!

1) How was your overall experience being a part of Smule Stories?

It was amazing. Being noticed by Smule and having them send a crew to show how Smule has helped me through my struggles was truly touching. It seriously shows how much Smule cares for their users!

2) Did you experience any challenges?

I didn’t really experience any challenges. At first I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m pretty good at connecting with people and so was the crew!

3) What was your favorite part?

My favorite part was actually meeting and talking to the people behind the scenes at Smule and learning more about the company itself.

4) What was the most memorable?

The most memorable part was Smule sending Cece to Jacksonville to spend the weekend with me. It’s amazing how close I am to that girl, especially after meeting her on an app!

5) Share a fun/random fact?

One fun fact is that I gave everyone on the crew nicknames: Alyce (Director) aka Asian persuasion, Mikal (Make-up Artist) aka Magic Mike, and Mark (Cinematographer) aka Dark Temptation. Also, you can find dark temptation and I rapping on my page to “No Type.”

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!
