As you know, an immeasurable part of what makes Smule special is our community. And within every great community are community leaders that go above and beyond to make that community even better. We’d like to recognize and introduce you to some such individuals. These people have proactively initiated, organized, and continue to manage independent user groups and programs to enrich user experiences on Smule. Because of their experience and willingness to help, they have become an invaluable resource to Smule as a bridge to reach more of the community, and they continue to volunteer their time to help Smule become better. They are our Smule Ambassadors.
