It all started with a stripped-down rendition of Lady Gaga's Born This Way. Who would've thought that this video would make the entertainment scene a-buzzin' over a 10-year old Filipino-Canadian girl? People are already calling her the next YouTube sensation. Move over Justin Bieber. And it's only gonna get crazier.

If you were on the internet at all over the weekend, you've probably seen or heard how talented Maria is. Or even if you don't have internet, news stations from all over have picked this story up and brought it to so many homes via radio and television. Everyone wants to see the real deal, as the video from this Winnipegger went viral in just under 24 hours. With the help of Twitter, Maria's video landed on blogger Perez Hilton's newsfeed, which Lady Gaga tweeted herself, as well as talk show host Ellen Degeneres.
The morning after her video went viral, little miss Maria appeared on a Winnipeg-based radio station, where it was confirmed that she will be doing a duet with Lady Gaga herself at the Toronto stop of her tour in March 3, 2011. (OMG, y'all might want to get your tickets, if you haven't already!)
Maria's YouTube channel is filled with more than 70 videos of cover songs from the last year that showcases her talent. So it's not like she just came out of nowhere. Just like Charice, Maria Aragon appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show today.
It's been barely a week, but a star is already born. Can you keep up?
