Featured Article: Majulah Singapura

The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall served as the venue for the first public performance of "Majulah Singapura" on September 6, 1958.
Majulah Singapura ("Onward Singapore") is the national anthem of Singapore. Composed by Zubir Said in 1958 as a theme song for the City Council of Singapore, the song was selected in 1959 as the island's anthem when it attained self-government. Upon full independence in 1965, "Majulah Singapura"' was formally adopted as Singapore's national anthem. By law, the anthem may only be sung with its original Malay lyrics, to foster a pride in native culture after living under British rule.
