Sing Together Singapore raised the nation's spirits while thanking our frontline and migrant workers

The people of Singapore came together to belt of Dick Lee's Home from their windows in honour of our frontline and migrant workers. The largest-ever nationwide singalong happened at 7.55pm on Saturday, April 5 as a part of Mediacorp's Sing Together Singapore campaign.

Led by composer Dick Lee along with music veterans Rahimah Rahim, Shabir, Taufik Batisah and local artistes like Desmond Tan, Felicia Chin, Rebecca Lim and Vernetta Lopez, people gathered by their windows with flashlights to sing their heart out to one of our all-time favourite national day songs. The music video also featured the 900-strong Voices of Singapore choir that originally inspired the idea when they released a video of Singaporeans from over 26 countries singing along to the tune.

If you recorded a snippet of your performance, upload it on social media with the hashtags: #singtogetherSG, #SingaporeTogether and #stayhomeforSG for a chance to be featured in the music video that'll be released at 10.30pm on Mediacorp's platforms.

You can also lend support to those most affected by donating to the organisations that need them most. This includes the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME); Project Chulia Street, which delivers care packages to migrant workers and Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2).
