PUTRAJAYA: Two new patriotic songs will be played for the first time to the public during the National Day 2021 celebration tomorrow, says Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) secretary-general Datuk Seri Mohammad Mentek.
The song titled Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian Family) was composed by Tan Sri Annuar Musa while Menang Bersama (Winning Together) is the work of Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) music director Datuk Mokhzani Ismail, he said after witnessing the full dress rehearsal of the National Day 2021 celebration here yesterday.
Mohammad said the song Keluarga Malaysia, performed by singers Ara Johari, Masya Masyitah, Putra Muhammad and Sufi Rashid, was created by Annuar in response to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s aspiration on the Malaysian Family concept.
“This is unique because even though the Prime Minister has just introduced the Malaysian Family concept, the ministry has stepped up to welcome the concept by producing a new song,” he said.
Annuar was named the Communications and Multimedia Minister during the announcement of the new Federal Cabinet line-up by Ismail Sabri last Friday, and will take his oath of office at Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur today.
Mohammad hoped both patriotic numbers, including Menang Bersama performed by singer Faizal Tahir, could inspire Malaysians.
On the preparation for the National Day 2021 celebration, he said although the duration of the physical performance was only around 50 minutes, it would be filled with entertaining events.
Mohammad, who is also National Day and Malaysia Day 2021 Working Committee chairman, expressed his satisfaction with yesterday’s full dress rehearsal, that went smoothly, while adding that they were praying for good weather. — Bernama
