The new song for this year’s National Day Parade is “Our Singapore”, written by Dick Lee and will be performed by pop singer JJ Lin.
Lee is credited with the NDP 1998 song, “Home“, which has often been cited as Singaporeans’ favourite National Day song.
Lee was initially hesitant to write the 2015 song, as he knew it would be compared to “Home”.
“It is going to be put out there to be judged. But then I thought about it, I’ve been judged all my life…everything I do is being judged,” he was reported by media as saying.
