This year’s National Day celebrations will not have a theme song, the first time in 16 years.
Instead, the executive committee for this year’s National Day Parade have decided to bring back familiar tunes like Count On Me Singapore, Stand Up For Singapore and Home.
Executive committee chairman Colonel Wong Yu Han said yesterday (May 14) that the decision was in line with this year’s theme, “Our People, Our Home”.
“As you sing these songs again and again, every year you attach a new meaning and deeper memories. This just makes sense for us,” Col Wong, 41, said.
This year’s parade will also feature the largest non-uniformed contingent to date.
