THE SINGAPORE POST COVID-19 PANDEMIC VIDEO CHRONICLES by singer-songwriter-comedian Alex Tan Sing
Alex naturally became a Content Creator when Covid-19 struck & created the most unprecendented times, a global catastrophe. To try to put his talents to better use, he decided to adopt a proactive mindset to help fellow Singaporeans & global citizens cope & overcome these trying times. He hopes that his postitive mindset, his never-give-up mentality & an intelligent & wise approach can help cheer & uplift spirits of fellow citizens plus make a difference in reminding everyone of the social responsibilties.
From writing an original song about how to stop the spread of the corona virus, to song parody asking everyone to Stay Home to stay safe to funny laments about the Circuit breaker extension, to the so-called "sovereign" citizen incident to the Safe Re-Opening post-Circuit-Breaker measures to the Roberson Quay "illegal gatherings", Alex has unknowingly documented the entire Covid-19 events chronologically, even to his own surprise as he recounts!
Right before Covid 19 Pandemic is declared
ALEX wrote & sang this ANTI-COVID 19 song called STOP THE VIRUS -Doing his part to educate kids to help stop the spread with these simple steps!!!
ALEX reminding Singaporeans to STAY HOME during the Circuit Breaker period with this funny song parody of Wang Chung's Everybody Have Fun Tonight, as this famous 80's hit is super catchy. He is also punning on the Have Fun part as he believes Staying Home is Staying Safe equals being alive & having fun!
Alex entertaining fellow Facebook friends with the continuation of the Retro 80's repertoire instead of joining people to do panic buying & hoarding after a massive leak of the PM's National-wide Speech Circuit Breaker Extension. At the same time, he is reminding fellow Singaporeans to not crowd together as it defeats the purpose of the further measure taken!!!
ALEX's Funny Song Parody about the Circuit Breaker Extension. Another month sent Singaporeans going just a little crazy, so Alex had to sing about that to make people laugh it out! He believes it is very cathartic & therapeutic!
ALEX's funny Song Parody about the infamous Sovereign Singapore Citizen who refused to obey the law & wear a mask. This song parody itself struck a chord with many Singaporeans as it truly expresses their frustrations over disobedient fellow citizens who are uncooperative. They needed someone to articulate that this defiant nature was truly unacceptable that's why it is a netizens' outcry! Turns out the lady might have mental issues, who knows!
Alex was very touched by online posts of fellow Singaporeans singing Home to show support to the frontliners, so he decided to attempt a new version the next day. Plus some last minute additions for fellow Muslims fasting during the Covid Ramadhan.
Alex took part to pay tribute to the front-liners with his original song "Reach For The Stars!" for the inaugural Star Association Online Tribute to the front-liners.
Alex sings about the overwhelming phenomenon of Zoom as a replacement for social gatherings.
ALEX's Funny Song Parody about the SAFE ReOpening to the classic L.O.V.E song.
Alex will continue to document & contribute in a socially-conscious way. His aim is to educate & entertain, guide & remind fellow Singaporeans, to grow wiser & to contribute to the progress of our Singapore, a place he proudly calls Home!
It has been his dream is to record this original song which he wrote for SG50 & hope fellow Singaporeans will 1 day hear & love this song & feel his passion for this beautiful island city he truly loves! He hopes to brighten the skies of Singapore like the Singapore sun!!!
