The Sapphires lip synching iPhone App

The Sapphires, ‘Soul Sync’ App is a lip synching iPhone App created to promote the movie and its soul-inspired soundtrack. The wonderful Jessica Mauboy, 2006’s Australian Idol runner-up, guides you through how to sing soul music just like a real Sapphire 

Using the app, first you learn how to sing like a soul diva, and then you are synched into a personalised video featuring The Sapphires soundtrack that you can share with friends via social media. There’s also a link to purchase the soundtrack directly from the app. 

Jessica explains; “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be in an app. People can now sing like me and the other girls.” 

The movie, also starring Bridesmaids’ Chris O’Dowd. was recently selected at the Cannes International Film Festival, and tells the story of an Australian indigenous soul group called The Sapphires. And since the release of the app, The Sapphires soundtrack has become the #1 Album on the Australian iTunes store. 

The film opens in New Zealand tomorrow (October 4) and will play at selected movie theatres across the country. 

The app also gives you an insight into the world of the real Sapphires narrated by the film’s writer, Tony Briggs.
