The first time Elmo Magalona made his public appearance was on the cover of Freeman, one of the albums of his father and Philippine music’s rap icon Francis M. He was six months old then, and wore nothing but a smile. Now 22 years old, Elmo’s smile continues to charm the public as one of show business’ leading heartrobs and the other half of the popular love team ElNella. He is currently seen in the primetime soap Born For You, with his newest on-screen love tandem Janella Salvador, and appears as one of the regular hosts and performers in ASAP. Known in the local industry as the “Heir of Rap,” Elmo made a touching tribute to his father, four years after the latter’s passsing, by releasing a remake of Kaleidoscope World and retitling it Kaleidoscope World Forever More. Its accompanying music video had the young star sharing a duet with his late dad through the magic of digital editing. He also collaborated with Ely Buendia in the album In Love And War, in behalf of Francis M. Elmo was cited Best Teen Performer of the Year at the 24th Aliw Awards in 2011, Promising Male Singer/Performer at the 43rd Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Awards in 2012, and both Male Performer and Male Teen Star of the Year for 2013 by Yahoo Philippines and PEP, respectively.
