Celebrate Singapore’s 57th birthday with thrilling performances by popular homegrown talents
Join us in celebrating Singapore’s 57th birthday with the Gardens by the Bay and Mediacorp National Day Concert 2022, as it makes its highly anticipated return to the Gardens’ grounds on 6 August!
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming National Day special is back this year to bring communities together in an exciting event at the Gardens, in the fourth collaboration between Gardens by the Bay and Mediacorp. Audiences can look forward to an electrifying ensemble of musical performances and laugh-out-loud comedy segments starring beloved multicultural local talents.
Hosted by CLASS 95 DJ Jean Danker and 987 DJ Joakim Gomez, the concert will feature various performances including a duet of the familiar National Day song Reach Out For The Skies by actress Rui En and Singapore Idol Taufik Batisah. Taufik will also present two other numbers – the National Day Parade (NDP) 2022 theme song Stronger Together, and his catchy hit single Awak Kat Mane. Audiences can also expect a rousing segment starring rapper Yung Raja, who will get the crowd going with Spice Boy and his biggest hit Mad Blessings. The line-up also includes Singapore’s acclaimed singer-songwriter Shabir who will debut his new song Rubaiyat Kavithai and another original composition Vettai S5 Title Track, which serves as Vasantham Tamil thriller Vettai S5’s theme song. Also debuting their new song Love is Real along with two other tracks Everyday Heroes and We Will Get There will be Dick Lee and his band Omnitones. Another duo taking the stage will be the multi-faceted artiste Annette Lee and popular homegrown artiste Benjamin Kheng who will be performing The Cai Fan Song and Where I Belong.
Audiences will get a taste of The Ann & Ben Show as their characters, Chantelle, Asian Mum and Hawker Uncle, make hilarious special appearances.
Fans can also laugh along to light-hearted skits featuring Alaric Tay and Chua Enlai who will perform as their iconic The Noose characters Nicholas Le Fong and Pornsak Sukhumvit. Meanwhile, Sebastian Tan will take to the stage with his Hokkien-spouting character Broadway Beng, and popular SGAG persona Xiao Ming will amuse audiences with his unique brand of humour.
To conclude on a high note, 500 drones by local drone innovation company MIRS Innovate will light up the night sky in the formation of our Singapore flag, as audiences stand united to recite The Pledge and sing our National Anthem.
This year’s concert will be graced by Guest-of-Honour President Halimah Yacob and Mr Mohamed Abdullah Alhabshee, as well as Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Ministry of National Development Ms Sim Ann.
President Halimah said: “Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, Gardens by the Bay and Mediacorp’s successful partnership allowed everyone to enjoy the virtual National Day Concert for the past two years. I am glad that we are able to come together this year for a physical concert and to celebrate National Day as a nation.”
Felix Loh, CEO, Gardens by the Bay, said: “We are happy to collaborate with Mediacorp to bring the National Day Concert back to Gardens by the Bay. This year is all the more meaningful as we celebrate the Gardens’ 10th anniversary. Over the last two challenging years, we have worked hard to continue with many of our key public events. Nothing gives us more pleasure than to be able to thank our fellow Singaporeans for their wonderful support by hosting this year’s concert on-site after two online editions.”
Tham Loke Kheng, CEO, Mediacorp said: “We are thrilled to be partnering Gardens by the Bay for the fourth time in a joint concert to commemorate Singapore’s 57th birthday. This year’s celebration is especially significant given that it is also the Gardens’ 10th anniversary, and the first time in two years we are returning back to the Gardens’ grounds for a live event. This is our gift to our nation, and a celebratory affirmation of the resilience and achievements of our communities. We hope concertgoers and audiences viewing the special on Mediacorp platforms will enjoy the dazzling display of talent from our homegrown artistes, right in the heart of the Gardens’ Supertree Grove.”
