SmuleFest 2016


Last year, we held our first SmuleFest where we came together to celebrate our love for music and community. It was a special time for Smule as we hosted over 700 people to enjoy an evening of music, singing and dancing with T-Pain, Tony Lucca, and Todd Carey. Check out our recap video!

This year, we are proud and excited to announce we our hosting our SECOND SmuleFest  – SmuleFest 2016, featuring performances by multi-talented superstar Jason Derulo and Smule community’s own Tom Bleasby! The event will be held at Public Works in San Francisco. Tickets are free while they last and the first drink is on us if you’re early. So make sure to RSVP to get your ticket here!

Tom Bleasby has been a Smule user since 2012. Outside of the Smule community, he is known  for his video duet with Jessie J, which quickly went viral and landed him a guest spot on Ellen. Tom was also a contestant on X Factor 2015. We are excited for him to be our first community member to be featured at SmuleFest!

What’s better than finding “Friend Like Me” (from Aladdin) added to Smule’s Songbook? Getting to sing it with Ne-Yo! Today, we are proud to announce Ne-Yo as our newest partner artist! Born in Arkansas and raised in Las Vegas, Shaffer Chimere Smith, better known as Ne-Yo, is an R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actor – is there anything this guy doesn’t do? He has collaborated on a whole slew of songs and projects, going back all the way to 1998, but is probably best known for singles “So Sick” (2006), “Because of You” (2007), and Mario’s hit “Let Me Love You” (2004),  which he wrote.

This song is a bit different from his usual sound; it encompasses two genres: classic and jazz. And he nails it! “Friend Like Me” is part of the newly released “We Love Disney” album that includes other pop performers such as Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Kacey Musgraves, and Ariana Grande performing your favorite Disney soundtrack hits. Check it out and Sing! with Ne-Yo!

Sing! with NE-YO and post your performances on our Facebook page! 🙂

Today on Smule, we welcome multi-talented superstar ― singer songwriter and choreographer, Jason Derulo! Treating us to his infectious smile and dance moves, Jason joins us to sing his latest top ten hit, “Want to Want Me”. Come sing with Jason Derulo on Smule!

Jason wrote his first song at the age of eight, and by his teenage years, Derulo was composing tracks for artists like Lil Wayne, Sean Kingston, Pitbull, Diddy and Danity Kane. Intent on becoming a solo performer, he released his debut single, “Whatcha Say” in 2009, a debut single that reached No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. To date, he has sold over 50 million singles, achieved at least ten career platinum singles, surpassed almost 1.5 billion views on his YouTube Channel, and somehow finds time to be a judge on So You Think You Can Dance! The man is 25 years old.

Fun Fact: Jason Derulo is the first musician to launch a new single (music video) through dating app Tinder. Using Tinder’s promotional faux profiles, Jason’s steamy “Want to Want Me” video found a fitting venue for a debut. Turns out 1.1 million people swiped right (meaning they liked him).

“Want to Want Me”, Derulo’s sixth top ten hit, is off of his fourth studio album, Everything is 4 and peaked at No.5 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The song topped the UK Singles Chart, becoming his fourth No. 1 single in the UK.  “Want to Want Me” became the most-added track in the history of Top 40 radio, being added to 156 monitored pop stations.  The prior record was held by Justin Timberlake at 126.

Sing with Jason Derulo!
