Maria Aragon inks deal with Filipino media company

11-year-old Winnipeg singer rose to fame after singing Lady Gaga song on YouTube

Winnipeg’s 11-year-old singing sensation, Maria Aragon, has inked a record deal with the largest media conglomerate in the Philippines. While the value of the deal hasn’t been reported,  it is known that Aragon will make at least two records for ABS-CBN. The young Winnipegger shot to fame earlier this year after a YouTube video of her performing a rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” went viral. Since then, Aragon has performed for Prime Minister Stephen Harper, American TV host Ellen Degeneres and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Aragon is currently in the Philippines recording her first album. Her father, Veni Aragon, told The Winnipeg Free Press that a version of “Born This Way” will be on it.
