Lady Gaga brings YouTube star to the stage
On March 3, Lady Gaga performed ‚ÄúBorn This Way‚ÄĚ at her concert in Toronto with the 10-year-old YouTube sensation, Maria Aragon. The avant-garde performer brought the young star on the rise out on stage to sit on her lap and sing an emotional duet of the smash-hit single.
Aragon reached this high-status gig through uploading her video featuring her soulful voice and lovely piano accompaniment in a rendition of ‚ÄúBorn This Way‚ÄĚ on YouTube on February 16. She has already received close to 20 million views.
This is only the first among many videos. ¬†The young starlet also did covers of Beyonc√©‚Äôs ‚ÄúListen‚ÄĚ and Bruno Mars‚Äôs ‚ÄúJust the Way You Are.‚ÄĚ
Gaga stated emotional and teary-eyed at the concert, ‚Äúknowing that I touched one person means the world.‚ÄĚ If Aragon has the power to make Lady Gaga cry, then clearly she is a force to be reckoned with. She proves talent comes in many shapes and sizes and that YouTube serves a bigger purpose than to provide a multitude of funny cat videos.
