Maria Aragon Takes Pride in Being a Filipina

Ten-year old Filipina Youtube sensation Maria Aragon is undeniably the young lady of the hour as she becomes even more popular all over the world. She wowed her fans when she performed in front of the media at Virgin Records in Toronto on March 4, 2011.

Maria proudly said that even she was born and grew up in Winnipeg, Canada, she could speak few Tagalog words, an indication of her being a Filipina aside from the fact that both of her parents are Filipinos from Ormoc, Leyte. She revealed that she wants to go to the Philippines one day to thank all the Filipinos who are supporting her.

“I’m just proud to represent the Philippines.I try to keep up with tradition. I’m not disconnected with the Filipinos. I watch TFC, too,”
she said during her interview with ABS-CBN.

The parents of Maria are also proud of their daughter. Her dad said that it only takes three hours for Maria to master a song. She became popular when she did the cover of Lady Gaga’s song Born This Way. This caught the attention of the singer who even said that Maria is a potential superstar.

Because of this, she was invited at the Ellen DeGeneres show last February 21, 2011 where she performed that same song. After that, she had a lot of offers to which she said; “We’re still making a decision as a family. I don’t want to be so quick and do everything at once, still want to finish my education”.

She said that she always pray before she goes onstage. And she was at her best when she had a duet with Lady Gaga in her concert in Toronto.
