Singapore, 27 August 2011 –
The National Environment Agency (NEA) announced the winner of the Eco Music Challenge 2011, 20-year old Lee Fengheng with his winning song World Without Fences today. This winning song will be the Clean and Green Singapore 2012′s official theme song, which will be launched with an exciting accompanying music video on 29 October 2011 at the Clean and Green Singapore 2012 Launch Ceremony.
One of the judges, Danny Loong, Chief Creative Director and Co-Founder of Timbre Group, said “I was very impressed not only by the creativity and quality of the finalists this year, but more so the diversity of music genres and styles presented. This goes to show that the music scene is indeed maturing and I cannot wait for what is in store next”.
Winner of Eco Music Challenge 2011, Lee Fengheng said, “This is all very surreal, I cannot believe the result because although this is actually the second song-writing competition I have entered, I did not even make it to the finals for the first one. It has been an invaluable experience with the mentors and I have made meaningful friendships with all my fellow contestants. I hope to be able to pursue my music education next and keep composing great music!”
The 13 finalists of the Eco Music Challenge wowed the crowd with their eclectic display of musical talents and melodies that inspire an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
The top winners are:
1st runner-up: Julian Kwok (Love for Planet Earth)
2nd runner-up: Darren Lee (早安你好! aka Good Morning!)
