Kuala Lumpur, 27 August 2021: As Malaysians commemorate the 64th Merdeka anniversary this August, Texas Chicken Malaysia is embracing Malaysian heritage and celebrating our homegrown talent through the power of music, in the Merdeka Beats campaign. For generations, Malaysians have been united and inspired by music and the arts, and in this challenging time, Texas Chicken Malaysia hopes to get the people moving on their feet – united as one and moving with the rhythm and beats of Merdeka.
“At Texas Chicken Malaysia, we want to celebrate the meaning of being Malaysian this Merdeka and Malaysia Day. In this challenging period, it has been heartening to see Malaysians coming together to help our fellow citizens, contributing what we can to help others during difficult financial times and helping other members of the community stay safe by complying with SOPs and striving to achieve herd immunity. In light of this, we want to uplift spirits with our multi-prong Merdeka Beats campaign this Merdeka season, as we unite in support of one another and find common ground in our Malaysian identity,” said Jean Tan, Acting General Manager of Texas Chicken Malaysia.
In the Merdeka Beats campaign, talented Malaysians will be able to show off their musical ability in a contest, while everyone else will also have the opportunity to win other prizes, enjoy great music and grab special value meals.
Merdeka Beats Remix
Remember the musical classics from the heydays of P.Ramlee, Saloma, R.Azmi, Momo Latif and many more legendary Malaysian talents? Texas Chicken Malaysia is giving new life to the classic song Manusia by the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee and Puan Sri Saloma featured in the film Bujang Lapok in 1957, now reimagined as a new song called Malaysia, performed and written by Cuurley. The revamped lyrics derive inspiration from history, calling on Malaysians to overcome challenges through unity in a music video featuring a backdrop of monumental scenes from 1957 onwards. The music video will be available beginning 28 August 2021 at https://www.youtube.com/c/TexasChickenMalaysiaChannel.
