'Ode to Macau' a song of note

"ODE to Macau," performed by Hong Kong pop singer Andy Lau Tak-Wah, has been chosen as the theme song of the Decade of Achievements Exhibition for the 10th Anniversary of the Macau Special Administrative Region.

"Ode to Macau" intends to convey the jubilation in the SAR upon its 10th anniversary.

The song's lyrics are adapted by Li Anxiu from a winning entry of last year's lyric-writing competition organized by the Chinese Cultural Exchange Association, and its music is composed by songwriter Keith Chan Fai Young.

Performed by Lau, "Ode to Macau" is considered a beautiful song that will resound in Macau and the motherland.

The association held the lyrics competition in September last year for works that express a love for Macau.

An awards ceremony was held on April 25 and winning entries have been compiled into an album.

These also served as the raw material for the theme song of the exhibition.
