It has been 20 years since the much-loved Dato' Sudirman Haji Arshad passed away. He was only 37-years old when he died, but he left behind many memorable hits such as Merisik Khabar, Milik Siapakah Gadis Ini, and Salam Terakhir, to name a few.
The guy who was fondly known as the "singing lawyer", "the people's Singer", and "Elvis of Malaysia" made songs like “Hoore Hoore, "Balik Kampung" and "Tanggal 31" a frequent tune during Raya and Merdeka festivities.
And now, in conjunction with Sudirman's birthday on the 25th May, Astro collaborates with Sinar FM, Era FM, Harian Metro and The Star to run the "Aku Sudirman" campaign to help the younger generation know more about the late iconic singer.
For those interested, a tribute concert will be held at the Stadium Bola Sepak Cheras in Kuala Lumpur on the 3rd of June, 2012 at 9pm.

Celebrities who will perform include Dato' Siti Nurhaliza, Ziana Zain, Misha Omar, AC Mizal, Jaclyn Victor, Kumpulan Hujan, Rahim Maarof and Khatijah Ibrahim, to name a few.
The campaign also gives you a chance to join a contest to win fabulous prizes such as Beats headphones and free tickets to the Sudirman-inspired movie musical "Hoore! Hoore!". All you have to do is pick a picture or video of the late Sudirman and emulate the singer in the form of your own photo or video. Add an inspirational message to your creation and complete this form.

Hoore!, Salam Terakhir, Kasih, Milik Siapa Gadiskah Ini, Merisik Khabar, Ayah dan Ibu, Pelangi Petang, One Thousand Million Smiles, Anak Gembala, Terasing and Balik Kampung. The story follows a good-hearted, unattractive young girl named Nurul Aiman. Aiman's handsome schoolmate Johari has a crush on her, but her best friend Lana, and one of the school's popular pretty girls Rita (who has issues with Aiman) have the the hots for Johari. Rita joins a contest, 'Ratu Idola' after finding out that her mortal enemy Aiman joined it, taking the competition up a notch. How will it end? You'll find out in the movie which started showing in cinemas 24 June 2012.
