YouTube Star of the Week: Maria Aragon
Several months ago, 11-year-old Maria Aragon produced a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and posted it on YouTube. Her video instantly gained fans and followers with more than 40 million views. Lady Gaga stumbled upon Aragon’s video and tweeted it to her millions of followers. Lady Gaga wrote, “Can’t stop crying watching this [video]. This is why I make music. She is the future.” Lady Gaga loved Aragon so much that she invited her to sing “Born This Way” in front of thousands of her fans on her Monster Ball tour. She also had the pleasure of singing for Prince William and Kate Middleton.
