Happy 56th, Singapore!

Posted on: August 9, 2021

It is Singapore’s 56th birthday today. Other than singing our national anthem, we also sing theme songs.

The video above is our official theme song for 2021. But we have unsanctioned efforts elsewhere.

Last year, a 900-person online choir sang the evergreen Home. It was particularly relevant when we were in full pandemic lockdown. It is still relevant in the age of Zoom.

But my favourite offering is this 2018 synthesis by local a cappella group, MICapella. It is a joyful piece that time-travelled from our independence to today.

I prefer the unofficial efforts because they are authentic. They are works of passion and collaboration from folks on the ground.
