Smule is celebrating the holy month of Ramadan and the upcoming Eid al-Fitr, with all Smuleans who observe it. We invite you to join by singing songs that evoke your spiritual journey, bring back memories of reconnecting with friends and family, and culminate with the festivities of Eid al-Fitr.

Check out this week’s featured recordings on the #Ramadan Playlist right now, or open up the Sing! Karaoke app and tap on the Explore screen.

Enter Your #Ramadan Recording!

  1. Sing a song from the Ramadan banner, or do a search using #Ramadan to join others. You can also pick any other relevant songs that help you express your feelings around this holy month, from the Community Songbook.
  2. Add the hashtag #Ramadan in your song and song invitations, so others can find your performance.

 

We will pick our favorites to be featured in the #Ramadan Playlist on the Explore screen every week.

New Feature: Fast forward and rewind

fastforward

One of the biggest things we hear over and over and over again is the ability to fast forward and re-wind on ANY audio performance. This means when you join a birthday song (or any group song) you don’t need to wait for the entire thing to play out – simply just move to your desired time!

If you messed up, that is okay – you now have the ability to re-wind and re-sing! 😉

Doing this is easy – simply tap on the lyrics – and scroll to the lyrics you want to move to!

Enjoy!

Smule star Liam meets hero Shawn Mendes

Dream big, put yourself out there, and you never know who you’ll meet.

It’s not every day we get to tell a story like this one. Meet Liam, the talented 4-year-old who’s been taking Smule by storm:

MeetLiam

Liam discovered his love for music at the ripe age of 2. When he’s not melting the hearts of the internet, Liam enjoys soccer, playing guitar, and rocking out to his favorite artists: Frank Sinatra, and Shawn Mendes.

Around 10 months ago during the #SingWithShawn event, Liam seized the moment & recorded this masterpiece:

The video swarmed social media, gaining millions of views, retweets, hearts & smiles. Guess who noticed?

On August 11th, with the help of loving parents Luke and Monika, Liam made it happen. Backstage at a show in Toronto, Liam was face-to-face with his idol Shawn.

Liam+Shawn

We love Liam’s story, because it shows that he had the courage to reach for the stars. What’s Liam’s advice to others? Put yourself out there, make something, never stop singing. Actually, he’s more articulate than we are, Let’s hear it from the man himself:
