Isa na namang Pinoy ang lumilikha ng ingay dahil sa taglay nitong talento sa musika.
Ayon sa report ng Startalk TX kahapon, katulad ng tinahak na landas ni Charice, unang nakilala sa pamamagitan ng video sharing website na YouTube ang 10-year old na Filipino-Canadian na si Maria Lourdes Aragon.
Last February 16, Maria Lourdes posted a video of herself performing Lady Gaga's No. 1 hit, "Born This Way." She was singing and playing the piano.
Napanood ito ng international pop superstar na kaagad na-impress sa Pinoy talent.
Sa isang live interview kay Maria sa local radio station na Hot 103 sa Canada, nagkaroon siya ng pagkakataon na makausap via phone patch ang kanyang idolo.
Sa nasabing conversation, inimbitahan ni Lady Gaga ang dalagita na mag-guest sa kanyang concert sa March 3 sa Toronto.
Sa nasabing phone patch, ang ilan sa mga sinabi ni Lady Gaga kay Maria ay...
"Hello my gorgeous Maria who is so beautiful and so famous on YouTube!
"Maybe you just gonna have to come onstage with me and sing that song, what do you think?"
Umiiyak namang sinagot ni Maria Lourdes ng...
"That will be really cool! I Just wanna say I love your music. Thank you so much for this opportunity."
Na sinagot naman ng pop superstar ng...
"Thank you! Don't cry. I love you, too, and thank you for believing in me. I will always believe in you. I promise you, Maria, when you grow up and become a big superstar, I will still be there, clapping for you in the audience next time."
Umiiyak pa ring tinugon ni Maria...
"Thank you so much!"
Nuong Martes, naging special guest naman si Maria sa Ellen Degeneres Show na naglunsad rin ng namamayagpag na career ni Charice.
Sa nasabing guesting, tinanong ni Ellen kung bakit ang kantang iyon ni Lady Gaga ang napili ni Maria Lourdes.
"Ah well, 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."
Following her appearance on Ellen, Lady Gaga wrote on her official Twitter account...
"Such a doll. Monster covers are all beautiful. I love this song so much. Thank u for giving it life."
Bagamat hindi isinilang sa Pilipinas, Maria Lourdes considers herself Filipino. Ang kanyang mga magulang na sina Bienvenido at Michelin ay kapwa Pilipino.
Samantala, last Thursday the aspiring singer also performed on Good Morning America or GMA in New York City.
The GMA staff gave her a gift certificate for six months worth of piano lessons.
As of Friday morning, ang "Born This Way" video ni Maria sa YouTube ay may humigit-kumulang na 14 million views.
