Looking Back on 2017 with Popsical Karaoke

January 2, 2018
This is some text inside of a div block.

Wow what a roller coaster of a year it has been! 2017 is the year where the first batch of Popsical Karaoke were distributed. That is a massive milestone from where we began our Kick-starter journey in 2015!

“The first half of 2017 has seen some incredible new benchmarks for the music industry,” said Dave Bakula, SVP Insights, Nielsen Music. “The rapid adoption of streaming platforms by consumers has generated engagement with music on a scale that we’ve never seen before.”

Since the first batch of Popsical were distributed earlier in May this year, our Popsical users have registered an estimated of 74,000 hours of Karaoke sung! With that amount of time you could actually take 1028 trips to the moon on the Apollo mission!

In the year of 2017, we have registered a total of 8500 Popsical users thus far! That capacity is enough to fill 3 Esplanade concert halls in Singapore! Isn't that amazing?!

While 2017 hasn’t seen as many legends pass away as 2016, unfortunately we’ve still lost a handful of world class talents in the music industry. We've bid farewell to music legends like American rapper and singer Lil Peep, Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington, K-pop boyband Shinee's Jong Hyun and various other brilliant singers like Tom Petty, Chris Cornell and Prodigy.
