Dearest blog readers – This story is way too heartwarming NOT to pass along. Allow me to introduce you to Maria Aragon, YouTube’s newest singing sensation. Her version of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way has racked up over 4 million hits in 3 days! Not only is she 10 years old and PHENOMENALLY talented, but she also happens to be Filipino! (surprise, surprise) Have I mentioned that every Filipino is born with an incredible ability to sing and dance??? I want that music gene for my baby!
Happily, the story doesn’t end there. Maria, who lives in Toronto now, was invited to the local radio station and surprised on air by Lady Gaga herself. The video is incredibly touching and will probably make you tear up a little. Pretty hard not to become a Gaga fan after hearing her in this interview! So do yourself a favor and warm your heart a bit today (especially if you’re in the midst of winter) – it will do you good! I’ll watch for the video from the Toronto Concert that they reference in the interview and share it with you when it comes across. Have a fantastic weekend all!
