IN AN effort to promote unity and the Merdeka spirit amid the Covid-19 pandemic, 14 women and community representatives in Penang have come together to produce a music video.

The video captures them singing Setia, joined by state representatives and members of the women and family development committees (JPWK) of Seri Delima, Air Putih and Ayer Itam.

State women and family development committee chairman Chong Eng said the music video was produced to rekindle the Malaysian spirit and encourage the people to stay united as one nation.

“Through this music video, we hope to send Malaysians a message to stay strong in this challenging time,” she said during National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations at Harmony Centre in Scotland Road, Penang.

About 60 people attended the music video launch.

Chong Eng, who launched the event, said this year’s celebration was all the more meaningful as Malaysians came together as a team to fight the pandemic.

“The tough times did not dampen our spirits. We are a mature nation.

“As we celebrate our 63rd National Day, we should embrace the differences among us.

“Our journeys are paved with many uncertainties.

“All we need is to be a united band and we will soon march on to a better Malaysia,” she added.

The music video can be viewed on the JPWK Seri Delima N-32 Facebook page and YouTube. — By RENA LIM
