SINGAPORE - A member of New Creation Church's worship team has written a tribute song titled You First Believed to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
It is understood that Pastor Joseph Prince had commissioned one of the young members, Mr Dominic Chin, sometime last year to write the song to thank the former prime minister for giving his life to build the nation.
The video was uploaded onto YouTube in February last year. In the description, Mr Chin said he wanted to "publicly appreciate Mr Lee Kuan Yew".
"He is literally the reason why Singapore is where it is today and I believe in giving honour where honour is due," wrote Mr Chin.
The 6-minute song, which was edited with archival footage as well as black and white photos, was recorded and said to have been sent to Mr Lee last year. Mr Lee had reportedly listened to it and responded with thanks.
