68 unknowns to be stars of this year's NDP theme song
It's the first time the theme song will be sung by ordinary S'poreans
It is usually a star who renders the National Day Parade (NDP) theme song, in one of the highlights of that evening.
Kit Chan raised lumps in people's throats with Home in 1998. Five years later, Stefanie Sun did it with One United People while Singapore Idols Taufik Batisah and Hady Mirza too have had their chance in the spotlight.
But this year, for the first time, the NDP theme song will be performed by 68 unknowns.
The aim is to give "everyday Singaporeans" the chance to be the stars of the parade, said the NDP 2013 creative director, actress Selena Tan.
