It's beginning to look a lot like Snapkus!

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

We are so thrilled to be bringing hundreds of your voices together for the 2018 rendition of the SingSnap Chorus! For those who are new to SingSnap - basically what we do is invite YOU to be a part of our Chorus! We select a song every year and at the end of the event, we have a completed recording with hundreds and hundreds of Snappers singing in unison! Check out some amazing performances in the past;

Previous performances included;Auld Lang Syne Acapella Version, Winter Wonderland, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!, Jingle Bell Rock, Silver Bells, Little Drummer Boy and Frosty The Snowman!
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!

This year we are singing Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree!

Our wonderfully talented Staff member Tony has performed two versions of this song! All you have to do is record the song with him as a duet and sing as closely along with him as possible! It's really important and crucial to sing as closely along with Tony as you can because the more in unison the voices are - the better it will sound!

You are allowed to submit up to two recordings. One with Melody, One with Backing vocals. Please read below for clarification.

Melody Defined: Essentially, sing the exact same notes that Tony is singing - when he is singing them. Just be sure to indicate when posting and in your song comment section that it is melody.
Backing Vocals Defined: Tony did something a little different this year and he has provided a backing vocals track. If you want to provide a track for this one, you may as well but please remember - you must sing in sync with Tony. Whatever HE is doing is what you must do! Do not try to freestyle or make it your own because if you do, the recording will not be accepted

Once the deadline has passed and all the songs have been collected, Tony will work his magic and mix the recording into another amazing SingSnap Chorus masterpiece!

Carefully read the instructions below to learn how to submit your song. A team of volunteers will review each submission and if it is successful, you will receive a banner on your song indicating so. If it is not, you will receive a private message telling you what the problem is and inviting you to try again!

Technical Requirements:

1. The songs to duet are;

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree (Melody)
Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree (Backing Vocals)

It is mandatory to sing with Tony on this song and it's available to all members.

2. Upon reviewing your recording, Enable Music must be selected.
3. If you usually record with "Stereo Mix" or "What-U-Hear" enabled, that must be turned off.
4. Sing along with Tony as closely as possible. Do NOT sing when he isn't singing. Sing with him throughout the entire song.
5. Each Snapper may submit a maximum of two recordings.
5A. If you only submit one recording, it should be a melody track.
5B. If you submit two, one must be melody and one must be backing vocals.
6. Record Audio-Only (Ensure you select the disable camera button on the bottom right corner of the recorder)
7. Sing Only! Please do not talk, make noises or any other sounds during the entire recording.
8. Most importantly - Have Fun, Fun, Fun!
9. You have until 3 PM EST December 14, 2018 to submit your recording.

Recording Helpful Hints:

If you're concerned or confused about Rule #3, please review this section carefully.

1. If you have What-U-Hear or Stereo selected on your sound card, it will not work in the finished product.
2. You must select "Mic Only" from the recording properties.

Setting Up Your Sound For Windows XP
Setting Up Your Sound For Vista/Win 7
Setting Up Your Sound For A MAC

A Few Ways To Test

- Once you've finished singing and are reviewing your recording: Until you select Enable Music, you should not hear ANY music. Voice only. Again, when saving your recording you must have Enable Music selected.

- A second test can be upon saving your recording - If you hear the SingSnap Chime, then you have recorded using stereo/what-u-hear and must try again.

- If you DO NOT hear the SingSnap Chime, it's likely you did it correctly and so long as it's in sync and has no talking/profanities, etc., - you should be good to go!

Your Banner:

Once you successfully submit your song, a volunteer will place a banner on your recording. Once you see the banner, you will know you have made the chorus! Congrats!

The volunteer team for this project will not have a special color by their name, so just look for the "Review Panel Banner". Allow at least 72 hours after you've submitted it to the thread for someone to review it. If, for some reason, your entry does not meet the requirements a volunteer will contact your via Private Message and let you know.

If 72 hours passes and you did not receive a banner or a private message from a Chorus volunteer, please send a private message to the SingSnap Events Team.

If you did receive a banner, then you can utilize this one on your profile!

Thank-You!

We are really excited to embark on this journey again and are hopeful each and every one of you participates. It's such a remarkable and rewarding experience, we promise you - you won't regret it!

Happy Singing!
