In May 2013, Magalona, in collaboration with Oishi, released a remake of a famous song by his dad, and renamed it "Kaleidoscope World Forever More". The remake featured his duet with his father. A music video was also created, with certain modifications and inserting Elmo digitally into the original music video.
