This year’s NDP will feature the inaugural NDP Virtual Choir, where we invite all Singaporeans to participate and sing in harmony, no matter where we are!
Record yourselves singing the familiar National Day song, “We Are Singapore”, with local artiste, Hossan Leong, who will take you through the recording and submission process. It is simple and it will take you just a couple of minutes!
We will put your submissions together into a tapestry of faces and voices, and broadcast the Virtual Choir on 9 August 2020, during the NDP evening show.
Together, let us Unite in One Voice for Singapore!
Submissions has been extended to Wednesday, 1st July 2020.
Sample Setup with 2 Phones
Sample Setup with a Phone and Laptop
Before you film, you will need:
A phone or computer that you can watch this video on (your playback device)
Another device to record yourself, such as a phone or a camera (your recording device)
A set of headphones or earphones to plug into your playback device. (These are recommended as they help us to capture your voice clearly without hearing the base soundtrack. However, if you do not have one, you can still film yourself without it)
A bright and quiet environment to film yourself
A red or white shirt is preferred, but if you don’t have one, you are still welcome to participate
Step 1 - Set Up Your Devices
Place your recording device on a stable base such as a tripod or a table
Ensure that you can easily reach all your devices so that you can plug in the headphones and hit record when you are ready
Ensure your recording device is in landscape position
Make sure you are well lit and can be clearly seen
Step 2 - A Quiet Environment
Close your windows, and turn off your fans and air conditioners
Ensure that your environment is as quiet as can be
Step 3 - Get Ready to Record
Leave your headphones unplugged first
Standby to plug in your headphones to the playback device only after the three beeps, as we need to hear it in your recording in order to sync the videos together
Step 4 - Record
Press record when told to do so
Wait until you hear the three beeps
Plug in your headphones to the playback device
Step 5 - Submit your Recording
Submit your recordings at: https://go.gov.sg/virtual-choir
