Music by: Goh Kheng Long
Lyrics by: Haresh Sharma
Performed by: Sylvia Ratonel
Directed by: Brian Gothong Tan

The National Day Parade (NDP) 2011 Show is presented in an integrated musical, showcasing the Singapore Spirit and Singapore’s progress over a prologue and five acts. Stringing the acts together are several main characters and various renditions of this year’s theme song “In a Heartbeat”. The show tells the story of Singapore from the perspective of a family, centre-ing on two main characters- Mother and Son, whose story brings out different elements of the Singapore Spirit, with Singapore’s history as the backdrop.

I really love this video. In the first half, it depicts Singapore in the 1970s to 1980s. So nostalgic. I’m really reminded of my own childhood. Playing in the Kampung (Malay for “village”) with my friends. Watching colour TV (no plasma or HD yet in those times). Singapore is really different now, from Third World to First World all in the span of about 40 years. A miracle? Not really, just pure hard work by our forefathers.
