New: Smule Holiday Challenge
Hey there, Smule fam! As you may already know, Smule Challenges give you a new, fun-filled way to sing and connect with other members of the Smule community. On the first Friday of every month, our team drops a playlist featuring the top performances from our latest Challenge. With that being said, it’s time to roll out the winners playlist from our most recent #90sChallenge and announce the Smule Holiday Challenge!
Smule App Playlist from the Past #90sChallenge
Recently, we challenged you to bring back the spirit of the 90s by singing your favorite hits of the decade for our new #90sChallenge. We then tasked you with sharing your performances directly to Instagram Reels from Smule so that friends, family, and music lovers around the world could ride the nostalgia wave with you.
A big shout-out to the following participants, all who are the lucky winners of a one-year Smule VIP subscription, courtesy of Instagram:

Send Holiday Greetings with Smule This Year!
The holiday season is in full swing–which means it’s time to send season’s greetings to your loved ones! This year, we’ve created special holiday arrangements (link to promo page) with room for you to personalize a holiday greeting. Now you can sing shortened versions of holiday classics to send to friends and family.
Better yet, Smule’s Holiday Greetings are free solos available to all Smule users! Join a Partner Artist on a holiday classic or sing seasonal favorites backed by gorgeous harmonies. These fabulous backing vocals were created by some of our community’s wonderfully talented users. Listen to their full-length performances here for a little extra holiday cheer: Winter Wonderland and Joy to the World!
We’d also like to give a special shout-out to these incredible vocalists, all of whom make Smule a brighter place to be.
