Smule Originals Contest
Just a few weeks ago, we announced the ability to add your own songs to the Sing! Songbook. Not surprisingly, many songwriters have used our tools to do so. It’s time for you to get noticed!
Ever thought the idea of making your own professional music video would be awesome? What about recording and mastering your song in a recording studio? Well, the Smule Originals contest can make that possible! We want to identify both songwriters and singers on Smule and highlight your talent!
- Enter between August 24th and September 20th

How to enter if you’re a songwriter:
