This year’s theme for Mr World Singapore is “CHANGING LIVES”. The message is two-fold: through the years of the pandemic, the world has had to change the way even the most basic things are done. Our lives have changed, perhaps forever. However, no matter how things change, the courage and strength with which a man approaches and copes with the obstacles in his life, to gain an ultimate understanding of his life’s purpose; and to live with deeper meaning and resonance with the world, remains his lifelong pursuit.
4 TITLES UP FOR GRABS This year, there will be 4 grand winners at the end of the Finals: (1) Mr World Singapore 2022 (2) Mr World Singapore Senior 2022 (30 & Above) (3) Mr. Grand International Singapore 2022 (4) Man of the World Singapore 2022,
This year, after a series of open and closed-door auditions, we have distilled the number of more than 100 potential candidates, to 25 finalists to form the Class of 2022 - each unique and representing a different face of modern manhood. From a packer at a local supermarket to a firefighter, from a muscle- bound nurse to a PR and marketing professional struggling with a stutter, from a man who had suffered for substance abuse and spent 11 years of his life in prison, to a 27-year-old planning for the most special marriage proposal on Coronation Night (his fiancée still won’t know till then)... each of these men possesses a story which deserves to be told.
To further challenge the finalists this year, Beam has assigned each of them to learn a special performance skill. Each of the finalists has been trained every weekend (and some weekdays) by industry professionals in acting; dancing; singing; and mixed martial arts, and will display their skills on Coronation Night!

The song was produced by Intune Music, and supported by Yellow Ribbon Singapore.
About Leowolf, songwriter This song talks about how we can all shine a light into someone else’s life, and chase away the darkness that surrounds them. In writing this song, Leowolf was inspired by the unconditional love shown to him by his mother, Mdm Hasnah, who will be attending the Coronation Night to watch the performance of the Singing Group of her late son’s song. Love can heal, and a mother’s love certainly is all encompassing and all forgiving. We should all strive to show empathy towards others, because even a simple smile can make someone else’s day.
