Vocal Curation Team
Collaborative, conscious, and committed to content. We're rounding up the best that the Vocal network has to offer.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us ...
To the Beat: July 2020
Your stories this month have inspired us to make the perfect summer playlist. July's roundup is particularly exciting as it features this month's new album releases from Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding, BTS, and more. We also have a healthy dose of indie, classic rock, and rap to round out this month's collection, making it perfect for every summer activity.
Take Time to Be
Another fortnight has passed. You probably haven't heard "fortnight" used like this in a long time, but hey, it meant "two weeks" long before it meant "wildly addicting MMO game." Anyway, we're the moderation team at Vocal, and it's time for another roundup of stories that we loved!
Every week, we ask the Vocal community to be just that: vocal. Be vocal about injustice. Be vocal about inequality. Be vocal about climate change, mental health, unemployment, heartbreak — the words you share can touch thousands as we brave these difficult times together.
To the Beat: June 2020
We're excited to kick off summer with a new To the Beat playlist featuring all the songs and artists you loved this month. Whether you are celebrating pride, protesting for BLM, or showing your support from home, this month's collection has something for you. This roundup highlights music from every decade. Creators shared everything from Lady Gaga's dance-pop hits to Jimi Hendrix's psychedelic rock. Craving Fleetwood Mac's moody tunes? Check. How about Sam Cooke's soulful ballads? Double check.
Voices For Change
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd cried out that he couldn't breathe, and the people heard his cries. In the weeks to follow, millions took to the streets, the courthouses, and the web to lend their voices to the chants echoing throughout Minnesota, the United States, and the entire world, extending allegiance to those affected and demanding justice from those in power.
To the Beat: May 2020
It’s been a heavy week. As a platform with such diverse creators and a diverse community, it’s always our goal to amplify the voices that need to be heard the most.
