Released on 14 July 2020, the NDP 2020 theme song is accompanied by a video directed by He Shuming. It features scenes of everyday Singaporeans from all walks of life. One of the familiar faces that we spotted was that of Josiah Ng from The Socially Distanced Dad.

The lyrics to the National Day 2020 song, Everything I Am, are:

I want you to understand
Because of you, I am who I am
Because of who you are
I can be Everything I am

Show me how I should be strong
Teach me that I can be weak
Because of who you are
I can find anything I seek

And In each other, there will be
The colours of your tapestry
Colours you’ve never seen

Here’s to my home, to my homeland
To every shining crystal in the sand
Because of who you are
I can be everything I am
Here’s to you, to my homeland
I hold this precious jewel in my hand
Because of who you are
I can be everything I am

Teacher teach me to be kind
Quick to embrace
And slow to close my mind
If we reach that star
We’ll have the universe in time

And In each other, there will be
The fabric of our destiny
It’s more than you and me

Here’s to my home, to my homeland
A sea of shining crystals in the sand
Because of who you are
I can be everything I am

Here’s to you, Singapore (homeland)
Here’s to my people I could want nothing more
Here’s to you, Singapore (homeland)
We hold this precious jewel in our hands

Because of who you are
Because of who you are
I can be everything I am
