What does #SGUnited sound like? The beloved soundtrack of “Home” by Dick Lee was recently sung by a 900 strong virtual choir brought together by Voices of Singapore. This choir featured Singaporeans in 26 countries around the world showing that music is indeed a force that has the power to bring people together.
The video includes messages of “Hello” from Singaporeans stating where they are living in, and well wishes for fellow Singaporeans.

For those who are inspired to do their own version or are simply wondering how this production was brought together, the tutorials and conductor tracks which led to virtual choir performance can also found on the Voices of Singapore website.
It’s fascinating to see the behind the scenes work that went into the production of the video and gain an appreciation of the work that had to be done to coordinate 900 people remotely.

The full list of names of the choir members involved is found on the website as well. You might be able to find familiar names of friends, family or even local artists.
The song “Home” has always strongly resonated with Singaporeans. This is even more so in these times when the COVID-19 crisis has underscored the need for national unity. Recently, the popular National Day song also made headlines recently when a violinist did a solo performance from the balcony of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa.
