Winnipeg YouTube superstar Maria Aragon excited about CMHR performance

It’s been three years since 11-year-old Winnipegger Maria Aragon uploaded a stripped-down, piano version of ‘Born This Way’ and caught the attention of the song’s artist, Lady Gaga.

The resulting YouTube bruhaha – Aragon’s version has more than 50 million views and the pint-sized singer got to sing the song on stage with Gaga in Toronto – has led Aragon to a record deal, touring opportunities, numerous appearances locally and internationally, and now to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Now 14, Aragon will be the youngest singer to perform at the national museum’s opening ceremonies in Winnipeg on Friday.
