It's tough times. You can't seem to escape COVID-19-related news from all around the world – whether it's on the daily papers, television, or social media.
But here's the silver lining: more people are staying united on online platforms, strengthening connections even more than before. Small businesses and personalities are using their voices to lift the spirits of Singaporeans, and reminding everyone what it means to be socially responsible. Last night, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT)'s Associate Artistic Director Dick Lee posted a heartwarming rendition of his 1998 NDP song Home with lyrics encouraging self-isolation.

Similarly, poet Aaron Maniam has shared a hilarious rendition of Stand Up For Singapore, aptly titled Spread Out for Singapore.
And finally, "remote collaboration" is a thing now, as seen by Mr Brown and Mr Miyagi's duet of the iconic song One People, One Nation, One Singapore. We love it. Let's distance ourselves physically, but not emotionally.
Have you seen any you funny parodies you'd like to share? We'd love to hear them!
