The Committee to Promote Chinese Language Learning (CPCLL) has compiled 15 original songs into a special album titled "Xin Kong Xia 2021". The songs were composed by past student winners from the 2019 and 2020 editions of the National Schools Xinyao Singing and Songwriting Competitions, who were inspired by themes such as family, friendship, and love, as well as stories found in their Chinese textbooks.
