Malaysian can choose which is the 1Malaysia song

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has called for public participation in selecting the 1Malaysia theme song as he wants the song to be “from the rakyat, selected by the rakyat and for the rakyat.”

The Prime Minister said a total of 10 songs have been selected for the final round of the “Our 1Malaysia” song competition and the public are invited to help choose the theme song.

“I call on Malaysians to familiarise themselves with the 1Malaysia spirit. Visit the 1Malaysia website and listen to the songs and vote for your favourite one.

“It is my aspiration to make the song from Malaysians, for Malaysians and chosen by Malaysians themselves,” he said yesterday, adding that the winning song would be announced on National Day.

The audio recording of the 10 songs can be heard atwww.1Malaysia.com.my.

The competition to choose the 1Malaysia theme song was the Prime Minister’s brainchild as he wanted to draw the people to participate in the 1Malaysia concept, apart from searching for hidden talents among the people.

“I am thrilled and pleased with the response given by the public. The creators of the 10 final songs comprise individuals from various backgrounds and they are truly impressive.

It is evident the 1Malaysia spirit is in the hearts of Malaysians” said Najib.
