Ho Yeow Sun, the wife of the Pastor Kong from City Harvest Church came out with a few Chinese albums and I bought her first. There were lots of hype for the album and controversies too. Ntevertheless I think her first album is not too bad - it does fulfill its purpose - ie to inspire :)

Before they started their song proper, they thought that it would be entertaining to dedicate a song in Malay for the non-Chinese audience who were attending this event.
What surprised me was the choice of the introductory song. The trio decided that they should belt out a distorted rendition of the Singapore national anthem.
I am a firm believer that we should treat our national anthem seriously. As citizens, we should learn to respect and honour it. Singing the national anthem is a solemn affair and it should not be approached in such a frivolous manner.

(P.S... this little song is just for fun only. Please don’t mention this to your colleagues ok?)

kyntheman compared the songs he had to sing at ACS and The Chinese High:
TCHS is a different kettle of fish altogether, being a secular (but not entirely non-ideological) and traditional Chinese school and all that. I think Chinese High boys celebrate small-scale National Days every week with the number of patriotic songs we sing. I suspect the administration wanted to convert us all to Yue Feis by the time we're through. Then there is the content of the songs. Is it my imagination, or are many of the songs somewhat militant in nature?

The Humming Bird's Diary has a video of an "exam hymn", sung in Bahasa Indonesia, in anticipation of upcoming exams in NTU:
For once I post in Indonesian! Anyway… The video I’m going to attach is in Indonesian, and I’m a bit lazy to translate it to English… The short video, made last semester by Mbah Chan, Vidy, and Suhu from NTU serves as an encouragement for those having exams.
