Be More Chill recently concluded its nationwide karaoke contest, and the results were thrilling. We received 1,046 entries from 48 states. The entrants submitted videos of themselves singing a song from the show, and things just got bigger from there. Once 20 finalists were announced for an online vote, almost 50,000 votes were cast.
The winner will soon get to sing at Be More Chill‘s Broadway home at the Lyceum Theatre, but the contest’s community-building impact stretches far beyond the theater. The contest page on the website received 100K unique views and drove over 2,000 new newsletter subscriptions.
