TikTokers are showing off their vocal range as part of the “Talking To The Moon” singing challenge.

Typically, creators singing the lines “I sit by myself, talking to the moon, trying to get to you” from Bruno Mars’ “Talking To The Moon.” Many use the echo voice effect to sound heavenly while others poked fun at their own lack of singing skills.

The trend is associated with the hashtag #TalkingToTheMoon which has accrued over 443 million views.

One of the most popular videos is of singer @Cameron.goode who doesn’t use any voice effects whatsoever.
