Every color and every hue
is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin’ round, make it twirl
in this kaleidoscope world

My first time going to 7th High is very memorable. I thought that I would go and dance at this tiny place, but I never imagined that I will go home in such nostalgia. The lyrics above is taken from one of the most special Francis Magalona songs, Kaleidoscope World. And what better way to honor him this Father's Day than his son, Elmo, joining him in a duet.

Elmo's interview during the Oishi ForeverMore Launch
A duet, you may ask? With the modern technology, Oishi Prawn Crackers, the well loved Filipino snack that has endured since the 1974, made a way to create an all new version of the song, now called "Kaleidoscope World Forever More". Not only did Elmo's voice was collaborated in the music, but he also sings, plays and acts with the Master Rapper in its latest music video. Truly, Elmo Magalona made it possible to embrace his Dad's craft. His showbiz career has barely begun, and yet he’s already a regular in noontime shows as both a performer and a host. He has also won a slew of awards for his musical performances.

The Kaleidoscope Forever More music video will let you see the original footage, with a digitally mastered Elmo Magalona in it. During the launch, his Mom, Pia Magalona, told us that there were parts in the video that they could insert Elmo into. After watching this awesome video, I felt goosebumps all over because seeing the father and son performing in unison makes you wish that Francis still lives. 

Elmo and Francis Magalona
Francis M.’s legacy will likely endure forevermore—for as long as there are Filipinos who love their country and their music. This tribute from Oishi Prawn Crackers will only be one of many to come. Indeed, some things are never forgotten.
