Happy Friday Smuleans!

It’s that time of the week again for Smule Picks! In case you haven’t heard, “Smule Picks” is a curated playlist of Smule’s favorite performances from the Sing! community that is based on a central theme every week. All community members are encouraged to add the weekly Smule Pick hashtag in their song description for a chance to be featured in this playlist. We publish a new Smule Picks playlist every Friday. And today being Friday, it’s time to unveil the new playlist and introduce next week’s theme.

First, we present this week’s Featured Smule Picks playlist, which is based on the theme of Summer. Check out the playlist right now on Smule Nation, or head over to the Sing! Karaoke app and click on the Explore screen.

And now, we announce the theme for next week: Jazz! Here’s what you have to do for a chance to be featured in the “Smule Picks” playlist next week:

1) Perform any Jazzy tune in Sing! Karaoke through the Songbook or Open Mic. You can sing/perform a song from one of the greats: Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, or Nina Simone; or you can take any tune and give it a jazzy spin!

2) Add the hashtag #SmulePickJazz in your song description (not in the comments section).

3) Upload your performance by the deadline on August 15 at Noon Pacific.

Easy, right? We will update next week’s playlist with featured singers on August 15th. Stay tuned for a new playlist theme every Friday, which will be announced right here on our blog. Groove on!
