What is the theme of the “Family Fun with Music” contest

The theme of this contest is “Family”. Participants can submit a video, as an individual or as a community, of a song, dance and/or them playing an instrument. The video of the song, dance and/or of an individual/community playing an instrument must creatively bring out “family”.

For example:

· Songs your family and you used to sing together or with your new friends in Singapore and how they have become “family” to you too.

· You could also include some activities you and your friends do together on your days off.

The submission can be of ANY LENGTH in any language.

We hope that migrant individuals or communities can share with the wider community, wonderful moments with their family and/or their family’s hopes and dreams.

If it is not an original song, please credit the song when you send us your submission.
