Who are the Lyrics Curators? How can I become one?

Lyrics Curators are the most passionate and active community members, selected on the merit of their contributions.

They have been spotted for the high quality of their transcribed lyrics, for the high commitment into the Musixmatch mission (build the world's largest lyrics catalogue) and for the interactions with other community members.

This includes providing feedback to other contributors, participating in Slack discussions, helping mentor new users, and encouraging great content.

You can spot them by looking for the curator label on their profile on the Musixmatch website.
