Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has today launched the official song "Children of Fiji" for Fiji's 50th Independence Anniversary.

While speaking at the launch, Bainimarama says the song is an anthem of the moment which captures the spirit of courage and compassion in these difficult times.

He says no matter what the challenge is, we have always seen that Fiji is at its best when we all stand together.

The song which is composed in collaboration with government broadcaster, Fijian Broadcasting Corporation is sung in English, iTaukei, Fiji-hindi and Rotuman languages.

The Prime Minister says he believes this is the first time where an official song includes Rotuman lyrics.

FBC CEO Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they decided to compose the song around 5 months ago that could become a modern patriotic anthem for the young generation.

Sayed-Khaiyum says song expresses the resilience of the Fijian people in any situation and celebrates the passion for things that binds us together as a modern nation.
