    My videos are made for entertainment only, so there's no copyright infringement intended!

    Hey guys. WHAT UP?! Nothing much I'm guessing...

    My sister made this channel to put up a very very old video of my dad and my brother making sound effects of dogs and other animals...so years later I'm using this channel to share to everyone my gift of music and the talent that God gave me. I sing, I giggle, I laugh...I love to entertain.

    In this channel I show you who I really am because when I see you in person I'll be really really shy! I'm only hyper to people I've known for a long time. But I want to thank you for your support so far!

    Love you guys so much!
    Be blessed & God bless,



    Are you filipina?
    Yes, because I was born and raised by Filipino parents in Canada, so it makes me Canadian, too! Although I've never been to the Philippines.

    How old are you?
    I am 10 years old, my birthday is on July 17.

    What are the chords to your music or do you have the music sheet for it?
    There are no music sheets, I figured the chords out myself and it's all by ear

    Influences: Jessie J, Michael Jackson, Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keys, Yiruma, Michael Giacchino, Lady GaGa, Armalyn Teroso CORRECTION: Armalyn Tesoro (sorry Ate Lyn I spelt your name wrong!)

    Country: Canada

    Schools: I go to school somewhere over the rainbow, and will be moving to a new school under the sea.

    Interests: I love to sing, obviously. I also like to paint and draw and go to school everyday but I hate the weekends, but not Saturdays. I'm very interested in writing stories about life. I like to sun tan in the leaves. I like to sleep beside my stuffed animals. I love my shoes and my gray jacket. I love the snow and the holidays especially Christmas. I like polka dots, I could tell you that. I love my friends and family. I appreciate God and all of his children!

    Movies: Despicable Me! (It's so fluffy!) I love The Little Mermaid and all the other Disney movies!

    Music: I love music that settles in the beginning but then BAM! Stuff makes you nod, and gets you dancing, you know? I love Michael Jackson so much. What's weird is that I never officially sang one of his songs. I was into music when I saw Beyonce. She's cool. And if you want to know, my first CD or tape was Barney of Raffi. I forget which was first, but yeah. Music is me. So me.

    Books: I just like books with a witty, smart beginning, and not too precise. I think that J.K. Rowling and Lemony Snicket do just the thing. Roald Dahl makes up his own little world where I can go and the experience is wonderful.

    Maria Aragon meets Ellen DeGeneres

    After her rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” went viral, there’s no stopping YouTube singing sensation Maria Aragon.

    On Tuesday, Aragon’s wish to showcase her talent in the popular television program “The Ellen Degeneres Show” came true.

    DeGeneres warmly welcomed the 10-year old Filipino-Canadian singer on her popular show.

    In the video clip posted on the show’s official website, DeGeneres asked Aragon on when she actually started singing.

    “I am 10 years old and I’ve been singing for about 7 years probably. Since I was 3 but probably back then I didn’t really get much meaning out of songs,” Aragon answered.

    Asked what pushed her to do a cover of “Born This Way,” Aragon said she attributes it to the meaningful lyrics of Lady Gaga’s song.

    “Because of the meaning of the song. It has a great meaning. It’s about just being yourself because God made who you are and you’re no different than anybody else.

    Furthermore, Aragon shared how she felt after talking to Lady Gaga herself when she guested in a local radio station in Canada.

    “Well it’s not everyday you get to talk to a superstar or you get feedback from a superstar saying that you did great on the cover that’s her song... We talked and she was actually having a bad day and I made her day, and it was really overwhelming,” she related.

    DeGeneres, meanwhile, advised the young lady to make the most out of each moment especially her forthcoming duet with Lady Gaga in Toronto.

    “But you should just know that she believes in you enough that she asked you to do it so just enjoy it,” DeGeneres told the 10-year old singer.

    Before the interview ended, Aragon again performed her popular cover of “Born This Way.”

    Delighted by her presentation, the audience offered her a standing ovation after the performance.

    DeGeneres also generously gave Aragon an iPad and other “cool gadgets."

    Other Filipino singers who were on DeGeneres' show after their YouTube videos went viral included Charice Pempengco who is now an international singing sensation, and Fil-Am tandem “Rin on the Rox.”

    Journey lead singer Arnel Pineda has also performed on the show.

    Lady Gaga invites Fil-Canadian girl to sing duet

    Lady Gaga has asked 10-year-old Filipino-Canadian Maria Aragon to sing “Born This Way” onstage with her in a concert in Toronto, Canada.

    Maria, who moved Lady Gaga to tears with her rendition of the chart-topping singer-composer’s latest hit “Born This Way” on a YouTube video, spoke to the international star via phone patch on a local Winnipeg radio station.

    "Not only do you have such a beautiful voice and you are so joyful to watch but, every once in a while, whether people believe it or not, I have a very bad day. And I was not having such a good day. And when Perez (Hilton) sent me the video of you singing I was so overjoyed that I began to cry," Lady Gaga told a pleasantly surprised Maria, who broke into tears as they talked on air.

    “I was so happy. This industry is very difficult to women sometimes and they want to tear us down and tear us apart. And I worked on 'Born This Way' for so long. But...when I saw you, so young and so beautiful singing those words so purely, it reminded me why I wrote this song in the first place and it reminded me why I make music,” Lady Gaga added.

    The famous singer then popped the question:

    “Maybe you're just gonna have to come onstage with me and sing that song. What do you think?”

    An ecstatic Maria said yes.

    Maria will travel to Toronto for the Lady Gaga concert, courtesy of the Winnipeg radio station Hot 103.

    Aside from "Born this Way," Maria also sang versions of other Lady Gaga's songs and uploaded videos of her renditions to YouTube.

    Lady Gaga herself watched Maria’s version of “Born This Way” and tweeted on February 17: "Can't stop crying watching this. This is why I make music.

    The video had already received more than 8.5 million views barely five days after it was uploaded.

    Maria Aragon wows 'Good Morning America,' NY Times Square

    Winnipeg’s newest celebrity Maria Aragon took the center stage as she appeared on ABC’s morning news and talk show “Good Morning America” (GMA) in New York City on Thursday.

    The 10-year-old Aragon, who has been overwhelmed by her instant shot to fame, again performed her cover of “Born This Way” in the show. It was broadcast on a giant screen in the famous Times Square.

    GMA anchor George Stephanopoulos said he was totally amazed by the 10-year old girl’s talent, according to a story posted by CBC News Canada.

    Stephanopoulos also thinks Aragon probably stopped everyone’s world in Times Square that morning.

    "I have to tell you, they were playing that out over Times Square. And while you were playing I think the traffic stopped all over Times Square this morning. That was so fantastic," he said.

    After Aragon's performance, the GMA staff gave Aragon a gift certificate for 6 months' worth of piano lessons.

    "You taught yourself how to arrange this song, but you've never actually had piano lessons. So we at GMA wanted to give you 6 months of piano lessons for coming on (the show)," Stephanopoulos said.

    Aragon was catapulted to fame when her cover of “Born This Way” caught the attention of international star Lady Gaga a week ago.

    Lady Gaga tweeted the video and described the young Filipina as “the future."

    As of posting time, Aragon’s video already has more than 13 million views.

    Since then, Aragon experienced an “overnight fame.”

    Aragon is set to sing with Lady Gaga on March 3 in the international singer's Toronto concert.
