Workers’ Party (WP) Chairman Sylvia Lim regaled her constituents with a special Malay song and dance performance at the Kaki Bukit Division Aljunied GRC Hari Raya 2018 celebration, recently. Although the event was held on 18 July, a video of Lim crooning the Malay song like a pro has recently gone viral on social media.

In the video, Aljunied GRC volunteer Azman begins singing a duet with Lim as back-up dancers dance alongside Azman and the WP leader. The crowd can be heard going wild with applause when Lim starts singing and the audience continue cheering whenever Lim sings her parts:
