Petition for Sun Ho to perform in Countdown 2016
We, the undersigned, petition for Sun Ho to perform at Countdown 2016 to be held at The Float @ Marina Bay.
MediaCorp has headlined singer-songwriter Adam Lambert as the star in the annual Countdown show, one of the biggest media events of the year featuring artistes and performers locally and overseas – but we understand that there are people who feel their children might turn gay from watching a gay person.
We believe it is Sun Ho who has more of an "unquenchable thirst to sing better, to live better, to love better, to be better." (After all, we can't imagine why else she'd travel across the world to live for an extended period of time in a luxurious mansion if she wasn't trying to be a better artiste.)
We call on people to rally for a performer who reminds the “majority of Singaporeans” of wholesome things such as family values, money, booty-shaking, money, some criminal case, money, God, money, church, and, of course, money. You know, "mainstream Singaporean values."
Let us reject divisive things such as “western liberal ideas about family values and societal models" and "lewd acts in the name of entertainment" to “preserve our nation’s moral fibre”. With Sun Ho as the closing act of Countdown 2016, we can look forward to a "dignified family-friendly event" that is not "offensive and potentially divisive".
To avoid dividing Singapore and souring what can be a rousing end of a significant SG50 year and a roaring start to a brand new year, we hereby petition:
- the Government of Singapore
- Minister Grace Fu and the Ministry of Community, Culture and Youth
- Esplanade Theatres on the Bay
- Urban Redevelopment Authority
- TGIF Bazaars
- The roti prata uncle from Casuarina
- All other organisers, partners and sponsors of Countdown 2016
to respect the views of the majority of Singaporeans by adding Sun Ho to the lineup of performers for Countdown 2016.
Thank you for your kind and prompt attention.
For the love of Singapore, our family and our future
