 A new app called Acapella has your back.

Acapella lets you record, synchronize and share songs, kind of like Instagram but for multiple-part vocal harmonies.

The app was released six weeks ago, but parent company Mixcord says it's already raised $1 million in seed funding, and that it now boasts 7 million active users monthly.  

It's also being embraced by Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Co-founder Daniel Vinh told Buzzfeed News that the app was inspired by users of one of Mixcord's other apps, PicPlayPost, where users were creating homemade a capella mixes on their own.
