In celebration of World Mental Health Day last October 10, Maxene Magalona released her take on her late father and rapper Francis Magalona 1995 hit song “Kaleidoscope World.”
On her Instagram account, she wrote,
“Just felt like recording a version of my Dad’s song ‘Kaleidoscope World’ in time for #WorldMentalHealthDay. We recorded this on October 4, 2022 which was his 58th birthday.
“This was one of FrancisM’s most popular anthems back in the ‘90s with a message so powerful and timeless. I thought of creating this version together with some of my artist friends as a gentle reminder that we are all connected to each other in love, peace and harmony. I truly believe that God wants all of us to experience this kind of colorful and vibrant energy while we are here on earth.
“We are not just here to survive. We are here to thrive and feel all the way alive.
“Happy #WorldMentalHealthDay, everyone. Please go check up on your friends today ”
In previous posts, the 35-year-old actress who is the eldest child of Francis and Pia Magalona, has opened up about her previous struggles after being diagnosed with complex post traumatic syndrome disorder (C-PTSD). Maxene also thanked her fellow artists who collaborated with her on the video, which also shows footage from the song’s original music video as well as a photo of Maxene and her father when she was a little girl.
“When healing hearts come together
I’m so grateful to this group of amazing artists who helped me bring this dream project to life. To hold space for each other and be able to create and express ourselves freely as artists is the kind of energy our environment would have if we were living in peace and harmony. No competition, division and hatred. Just teamwork, unity, and love. This is the Kaleidoscope World ”
