SMULENESIANS 4th ANNIVERSARY GATHERING – 2017

** Community Post **

Smulenesians, the biggest Smule community in Indonesia, must be proud. Because this year in 2017, they celebrate their 4th anniversary. The community was established in January 14, 2013 and continues to grow rapidly since then. Currently, it has more than 1800 official members.

SmuleNesians successfully held their anniversary celebration on February 5, 2017. Located at Eleven Trees Café, Jakarta – Indonesia, more than 80 members were happy to come to the gathering. Unpredictable weather didn’t deter the spirit and enthusiasm of the members to attend and participate in this annual event.

The event started at 11:00 AM. The guests were asked to register themselves in advance, and then they were having lunch together with the buffet menus from the café. Warm impression felt at the luncheon that time. The guests greeted each other, and there were also laughter. There was no distance at all among them.

The gathering was hosted by MC @AndyLeeGouw. The founder of SmuleNesians, @iKingYamosGani gave speech first, followed by one of the SmuleNesians Leaders for second generation, @Ariyanti. There was also an introduction of the new leaders for third generation, they are @Achieoseven, @NehemiaHelmy, and @Ozzy_Genjrit.

A rousing welcome was given to all new three SmuleNesians Leaders. They bring a big responsibility to continue what former leaders did, to make SmuleNesians into a medium or community that can accommodate and bridge the musical talents of its members to be better. Surely this can be achieved not only from the hard work of the leaders, but also by the support and participation from the members.

After all speeches and introduction of the new leaders, everybody couldn’t wait for the ceremonial, to blow candles on the anniversary cake and cut the cake. Then the founder gave the first piece of the cake to the new leaders.

As a community that originated from Smule, it is certainly incomplete, if we don’t sing together at least one track on Smule Sing! app. All the guests did a mass karaoke and sang together at the moment, covering a song from Mr. Big, To Be With You. It was recorded on Smule Sing! video. The people were organized and divided into three groups to do lead vocal, harmonies, and adlibs.

You can also see the mass karaoke here in official Smule Sing! account of @SmuleNesians:

Everybody was so happy to meet, knowing each other directly outside Smule, and sing together on the gathering.

Last but not least, we hope that in the future SmuleNesians could be growing in both quality and quantity of the members. It is expected to become a community that can be reckoned with in music world, especially Indonesia. Success for all of us!

Smule Celebrates SmuleNesians 3rd Anniversary

The SmuleNesians are widely recognized around the Smule Community as the Indonesians based Smule group and one of the first Smule groups to form on Smule. Not only does this group collaborate to make, cover and join amazing performances, but they also are hugely involved in contributing to their local communities while aiming to connect their local communities through music. Learn about SmuleNesians in their own words below:

We will be posting more about SmuleNesians through out the week. Stay Tuned!

Who are the SmuleNesians?

SmuleNesians (SN) is an Indonesian community of Smule Sing! App users, and became the First and the Largest nation-based community in the app (almost 2,000 registered members). SmuleNesians released its 1st original single “SHINE” (by SmuleNesians All-Stars) in the early 2014, which  is available in iTunes and in the Official Smule Songbook section of the app. Since then, SmuleNesians became one of Smule’s Official Partner Artist.

Like it is stated on its mission statement: Besides to support each other, SmuleNesians provides the means for its members to develop their skills and passion in singing/music, so they can make great performances within the Sing! App and can give the best reference for music lovers in Indonesia, as well as worldwide. They are also committed to actively support Smule’s programs and to give essential feedbacks to support Smule’s development.

There are several sub-groups in SmuleNesians: SN Junior (members between 13-17 y.o.), SN VIP Guest (selected Non-Indonesian members), SN Partner Artist (selected professional singer/musician), and sub-groups based on music genres and skill: SNRock, SNPop, SNRnB, SNJazz, SNWorld, SNComedy and SNMusicians.

SmuleNesians is also the first community of Smule Sing! that held a Live Concert, namely SN GIGS. The Gig was performed by numbers of SmuleNesians singers and musicians, and it will continue to be held periodically. They will keep continue to grow and to develop themselves, so in the future they can reach their goal: To be the most admired music community in Indonesia and in all over the globe.

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!

Smule Local Meet Up 2015

Smule Local Meet Up 2015 

smule local

Smule meet ups are very special to the Smule community because it forms another more tangible way of connecting people through music. Most Sing!ers sing, connect, and get to know each other through the app on Smule. Meet ups can make those connections stronger, and well they’re also just a lot of fun. But, with life being so busy, it’s not always easy to plan and get them going.

Soooo, we thought we’d give everyone a nudge and create a day for Smulers to organize and host a Smule meet up to celebrate singing and connections live and in person with other local users! The response was awesome!

On November 7th, 2015, Smulers all over the world got together to attend a local meet up, all on the same day. There were well over 1,000 participants who collaborated, sang, ate, shared stories, danced, etc. Over the course of the event, people took part in Smule meet ups in over 50 cities across Asia, USA, Europe and Canada!

Check out all the participating cities in the photo, continue organizing meet ups, and stay tuned for more large-scale Smule meet up events in the future!

“I had an amazing time meeting everyone. It felt like we’ve known each other all our lives. It didn’t matter if you’re young or old,  we all had something in common: we all love singing! Can’t wait for the next meetup!!” – Lester, UK

“It was because of the hard works of all coordinators and the cooperation of all participants, we succeeded in holding meet ups in up to 17 cities in Indonesia. So props to all of them smile emoticon” – Ariyanti, Indonesia

“I have met long time friends and friends for life from this meet up!” – Sara, Canada
