Smule App Connecting Global Users Through Song

By Uloop Staff on May 13, 2020

With the coronavirus forcing millions to stay home, social media and streaming platforms have seen their membership numbers increase exponentially. And Smule, a social singing network, is no different. According to a recent press releaseSmule has seen a significant rise in new users joining in from all over the world since COVID-19 hit.

Inspired by the idea that stories and songs bring people together, Smule is a global online community of music lovers where millions from all over come together each day to sing along to popular songs, often with other people – and sometimes with the stars themselves – plus make new friends, cheer each other on, and simply have fun. Regardless of skill level, Smule members share a love for singing and a love for connecting with other people through the shared experience of performing songs together.

The Smule app is similar to a combination of Snapchat and YouTube, mashed up with an automated sound and video recording and effects studio. People can sing or record songs on video with new friends, karaoke by themselves, or acapella with others.

Members of Smule communities include people from all walks of life, including real-life superstars, such as Lewis Capaldi, who upload recorded versions of their top hits for other members to sing along with and repost to the network and other social media platforms. Fans can even sing along with Disney characters like Moana to the hit songs from popular Disney films.

Thousands of independent singing communities and teams have sprung up around the world, using Smule as the platform to showcase their singalongs.

One such community, Apex Team, is a group of 46 young, talented and dynamic voices who came together as a virtual choir that inspires online audiences with their musical performances. Apex produces more than 100 group collaborations a year, and most recently, a phenomenal performance of Fight Song, by Rachel Platten and Dave Bassett – edited into a “Thank You” to frontline professionals in the fight against COVID-19.

In times like these where it’s easy for us to feel alone and isolated, Smule is helping bring people together through music. Visit today to download the app and get singing!
