*Clubhouse is the new invite-only audio app that is poised to be the next big thing in social media. The app works by allowing users to tap in and listen to conversations taking place in “rooms” about a variety of topics.
There are rooms where you can tap in and listen from “the audience.” There is a panel that’s “on stage,” moderators are indicated by a green asterisk. The audio-only convos aren’t recorded. You’re either there or you miss it… for now. The conversations are random on topics including investing, how to pitch a start-up or podcast, love and relationship advice, tech and other random topics. Or you could stumble on the readings of the Gucci Mane memoir, Tyrese giving advice to young actors in the biz, or a Jay Z appreciation night that included Dame Dash and other producers featured on his projects through the years.
On Saturday, December 26th, a group of the app’s users took innovation to the next level with an app performance of “The Lion King.”
This audio production featured two performances that consisted of over 40 entertainers and musicians, all who auditioned to be apart of the event. The idea started in a room, where marketing exec and event producer Noelle Chesnut Whitmore thought another CH user’s voice would be perfect to play Mufasa.
The production featured hours of rehearsal time, a choir, narrators, and imagery using the participants’ photo icons via PTR (pull to refresh,) to bring the performance to life.
Today’s the day! Hope y’all are ready! Be on time because I can’t help you when we reach capacity! S/o to the whole cast and crew. Remember to use #TheLionKingCH so we can see your reaction and response pic.twitter.com/b3KuWd0fwe

#MirSays Here’s the thing: We just made history on a pioneer tech with a cast & crew that was solely POC. Lion King should have been us from the beginning. Today we fixed that. I don’t ever ever wanna here you can’t find us. We are HERE. ✊ #TheLionKingCH #StayTuned ✨
