Lady Gaga Invites ‘Born This Way’ YouTube Star Maria Aragon to Perform On Stage
It's been two weeks since Lady Gaga tweeted the link to 10-year-old Maria Aragon's cover of her song, 'Born This Way.' But those few weeks have completely changed the Canadian youngster's life -- and tonight she will sing on stage with Gaga in Toronto.
"This is why I make music. She is the future," Gaga said upon discovering Aragon's cheerful cover video, which has now been seen by over 17 million people. One little tweet from Queen Gaga sent the young Winnipeg girl through a whirlwind of media appearances, from the Ellen DeGeneres show to Good Morning America.
Tonight, Gaga's 'Monster Ball' tour rolls through Toronto, Canada to the Air Canada Centre, where Maria Aragon will stand beside Gaga on stage to duet -- presumably on 'Born This Way' -- in front of a sold out crowd.
"I'm feeling excited to sing with her because she's so fun. I'm just excited to see what's going to happen," Aragon told CBC News this morning.
She adds, "I don't know what to say to her, but I'm just going to try and be myself." Afterall, isn't that what 'Born This Way' is all about? Go Maria, go!
