Introducing Acapella, the app that lets you harmonize with yourself
The world needs more of you
Ever listen to yourself sing and think: "I wish there were more of me?"
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.
People are posting some pretty impressive videos.
