DAY 19 – #DASunited – HOME! #CircuitBreakerSG
We ask the DAS community to sing together TODAY
At 7:55 pm on Saturday, 25 April, tune into a local TV or Radio channel and sing HOME with everyone in Singapore.
Gather your family together and video yourselves singing and post your videos to social media with ALL of these hashtags!!
#singtogetherSG, #stayhomeforSG, #SingaporeTogether
And the MOST IMPORTANT ONE!! #DASunited
PM LEE encourages us to sing today, he posted on FaceBook “#SGUnited” events. These are ground-up initiatives, to thank frontline workers and others working hard to protect us all and keep Singapore running. Glad people from all walks of life have wholeheartedly joined in these initiatives! To keep up the momentum, the media industry and local celebrities have teamed up for “Sing Together Singapore!”. I hope all Singaporeans will come together to sing one of our favourite songs – Home – tonight at 7:55 pm. If you record yourself and your family singing and post it on your social media with the hashtags below, you may be included in a video compilation that will be broadcast on TV later at 10:30 pm. Do join in and sing your support! – LHL”
You may be lucky enough to have your video highlighted in the final production of HOME and DAS will do its best to produce a version of our own community. If you use the last hashtag we will be able to find the DAS videos!
So, join me, on Saturday we are going to sing for Singapore! What a goosebump moment! A chance to join in on such a momentous occasion. I will be singing – please join me!

Whenever I am feeling low
I look around me and I know
There’s a place that will stay within me
Wherever I may choose to go
I will always recall the city
Know every street and shore
Sail down the river which brings us life
Winding through my Singapore
This is home truly, where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me, where the river always flows
This is home surely, as my senses tell me
This is where I won’t be alone, for this is where I know it’s home
When there are troubles to go through
We’ll find a way to start anew
There is comfort in the knowledge
That home’s about its people too
So, we’ll build our dreams together
Just like we’ve done before
Just like the river which brings us life
There’ll always be Singapore
This is home truly, where I know I must…
