Now that we’ve clapped for our frontline workers, how about serenading them with a song next? Singaporean singer-songwriter Dick Lee recently announced on social media that he will be leading a nationwide singalong of ‘Home’ to show appreciation towards our frontline workers and volunteers.

Simply tune into any Mediacorp channel and station at 7.55pm to be part of the singalong this Saturday (Apr 25).

The composer of this iconic song wrote on his Facebook page: “How are you all coping with the isolation?…Let’s all sing in one voice to lift our spirits and thank our frontline workers and volunteers!”

Many netizens left positive comments on his social media post, praising him for uplifting Singaporeans through music. Others promised they would sing from their windows.

Facebook user Doris De Souza said: “Thanks Dick, my children and I will sing loudly from our window. I am certain our neighbours will do that too! Looking forward to sing about our Home!”

Just a week ago, more than 900 Singaporeans living in Singapore and abroad came together to sing ‘Home’. Posted on Apr 14, the heartwarming video has garnered over 187,000 views on Facebook.

Popular local artists, including Nathan Hartono and Yung Raja, were also part of the virtual choir project by Voices of Singapore. The project hopes to unite Singaporeans through this tough time.

Likewise, let’s encourage each other by continuing to stay home while our frontline workers keep up the fight against the virus.

What better way to do that than to come together and sing ‘Home’ to remind ourselves that we will remain united throughout this pandemic?
