Lady Gaga Tweets Maria Aragon’s ‘Born This Way’ Cover
Lady Gaga is indirectly creating the face of tomorrow’s music industry. The quirky pop star tweeted a goosebump induced YouTube video of 10-year-old Maria Aragon covering her new single, ‘Born This Way.’
“Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future,” Gaga confessed on her Twitter page, along with a link to the young Filipina girl’s video.
‘Born This Way’ hasn’t even been out for a week, but this talented little lady wasted no time in learning it — even adding her own sassy spin on the song. Yes, she’s adorable, but don’t let that detract from her obvious talent. The way Maria playfully glances up at the camera while maintaining the piano and her big voice is nothing to scoff at.
Now that Gaga has drawn attention to Maria’s page, there’s no doubt she’ll have a record deal soon — at least, that’s what happened with then-12-year-old Greyson Chance when he performed Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi‘ at his sixth grade talent show. He’s now signed to a label, eleveneleven, created especially for him by Ellen DeGeneres.
The best part of this story is that Gaga’s influence is a positive one — and her songs, like ‘Born This Way,’ give young kids the fresh idea to be who they are and not who they see in magazines. This is where it all starts!
