The Singapore Association for the Deaf is spearheading this first ever project of having 55 signers using Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) to sign a song remotely online in line with social distancing measures during this Covid-19 period. 55 signers were involved to celebrate Singapore's 55th Anniversary.

The project also aims to break the Guinness World Record of having the most number of people using sign language to sign a song remotely online.

This project showcases the beauty and versatility of SgSL through song-signing, and to create interest among the public to learn about Deaf Culture and sign language, and raising Deaf awareness.

Through the effort of our 55 participants, we appeal to your generosity to donate towards the cause of people with hearing loss. Your donation towards this campaign will be granted a dollar-for-dollar matching with Tote Board and the government.
