Maria Aragon

I can’t stop hearing about Winnipeg's 10-year-old singing sensation Maria Aragon; probably because I listen to Virgin 99.9 in the morning and they were the ones that set her up to sing with Lady Gaga.

In case you haven't heard about this little YouTube star here's her wiki story:

In February 2011, she posted a video on her sister's YouTube channel in which she performed a cover of “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga. A Tweetfrom Lady Gaga on the video was sent to her eight million followers, and launched Maria to instant, international fame. 
3 days after the video release Maria was on the Virgin morning show and they set up a call between her and Gaga, where Gaga invited her to sing on stage with her during her upcoming Toronto performance. Within 6 days her video, "Born This Way - (Cover)" on YouTube had reached up to 12 million views.

Check out the video here.

What do you guys think? Is this Maria's 15 minutes of fame or does she have a shot?

What a cutie pie! She does have a pretty good voice and with training I think she could be very good - lots of natural talent!

She's adorable - I'd like to see a video of her and Gaga.
I'm impressed with how much attention Gaga gives to her fans.

She's great! I think she's absolutely adorable and clearly very talented.

So excited for her! on Mar 03, 2011 @ 09:16 am

This little lady is going to be on stage with Gaga tonight, I'm excited to hear about it tomorrow on the radio.

Can you imagine how she's feeling right now? I mean, she's 10!

I WISH I was going to that concert tonight!

Me Too! on Mar 03, 2011 @ 10:12 am

I think a Gaga concert would be one of the best perfromances you could see... I'm so jealous, I've been seeing some of my friends statuses count down until the concert date.

Maria got to go on stage with Gaga last night!


what an amazing opportunity! on Mar 04, 2011 @ 01:21 pm

She did an awesome job - and looks super cute too!

I have my morning alarm clock set to Virgin 99.9 fm (the station that hooked her up with Gaga in the first place) and I woke up this morning to them replaying Maria's performance last night.

I love hearing stories like this. She is a very talented young lady, and I really hope she can make it far! She reminds me of another talented girl Charice, who was discovered a while back, and is absolutely sensational!
