Arts, Music and Entertainment are integral in every culture around the world. Though we are a young and small nation, we have produced many world-class artistes to call our own who bring their unique Singapore blend of music and performance arts to the world.
With only 10 days left to the end of 2014, here’s a rare chance to catch all of Singapore’s legendary stars gathered under one roof in one star-studded event!
On New Year’s Eve (31st December 2014), MediaCorp is pulling out all the stops for a 7-hour countdown show like no other. Titled “Celebrate SG50“, it features over 60 local artistes from the past 5 decades performing songs of their era. The stellar line-up (which sounds even better than the past NDPs) include some of our brightest and best homegrown talents:
1. Dick Lee
2. Kit Chan
3. Stephanie Sun
4. The Sam Willows
5. Dim Sum Dollies
With Dick Lee helming the show as the Creative Director, we know the Celebrate SG50 Countdown will be one unforgettable show with a difference.
‘The show is going to be very big. It is the biggest stage ever; we have got lots of fantastic projections, we have great costumes and all the creative visuals I have been involved with to make sure it is going to be stunning.’ ~ Dick Lee.
As the first of many SG50 celebrations throughout the year, the wish is for all Singaporeans to come together to celebrate the country’s journey as a nation. Hosted by the popular Mediacorp TV celebrities (Bryan Wong, Jean Danker, Kym Ng, Joanne Peh, The Muttons and Yasminne Cheng), the show also boasts 2 international mega-stars: Big Bang and Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza. As a finale, there will be magnificent fireworks lighting up the Marina Bay skyline at midnight! Something new for attendees to look forward to would be the special acrylic wristbands with radio-frequency identification features which double up as identification at the event, and can be linked to social media accounts for seamless, instantaneous sharing. Cool!
According to MediaCorp’s Managing Director, TV, Bernard Lim, the show is a “significant milestone in Singapore’s history which will unite the nation. Iconic local personalities will rally Singaporeans together in this special island-wide celebration which will be linked up ‘live’ with other satellite town locations from Bishan Park, Boon Lay Place and Punggol North. We hope to have everyone in Singapore joining us at these locations, or watching the show from their living rooms or watching wherever they are on Toggle via live streaming.”
