Lady Gaga invites Maria Aragon to perform Born This Way

After being so delighted with ten-year-old Maria Aragon's cover of her latest song "Born This Way," Lady Gaga talks to this young Filipina YouTube singing sensation and invites her to perform the song when she tours Toronto, Canada in March.

Last Friday, Maria Aragon got to talk with Lady Gaga when she guested in Winnipeg's Hot 103 radio station. Gaga tells the young Filipina how happy she felt when she saw her homemade video after having a terrible day. She said watching her sing brought her to tears.

Lady Gaga expressed how much she supports young Aragon. Don’t cry. I love you too. Thank you for believing in me. I will always believe in you. I promise you, Maria, when you grow and become a big superstar, I will still be there clapping for you in the audience next time."

Aragon has become such a hit with her YouTube music video especially right after Lady Gaga praised her that she has been invited on the Ellen DeGeneres show. She tells Ellen that she has been singing since she was three years old.

Aragon, who's father is from the city of Mandaluyong and who's mother is from Ormoc in the Philippines, was born in Canada and currently lives in Winnipeg. She follows the footsteps of Charice (Pempengco), who was first seen on The Ellen DeGeneres show before meeting Oprah Winfrey. Charice has worked with famous international artists like David Foster and Celine Dion. Recently, she has guested in the hit FOX TV show Glee as Sunshine Corazon, Rachel Berry's (Lea Michelle) rival.
