Maria Aragon (@mariiiaofficial) is a Filipino-Canadian singer from Winnipeg, MB. At a young age, Maria took up an interest in singing and started doing covers which she posted on her sister’s YouTube page. Maria gained fame after posting a video on YouTube of her performing “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga, and it quickly went viral. The video caught Lady Gaga’s attention and she was so impressed by Maria’s performance. Gaga ended up inviting her to perform the song with her on her Monster Ball Tour in Toronto in March 2011.

Prior to this, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres also came across Maria’s video and invited her to perform on the show in February 2011. On March 29th 2011, Aragon performed "Born This Way" at her home for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. After this, she also appeared in commercials for HTC singing the K'naan song, “Wavin' Flag” and Gap Kids, singing "I Want Candy". She performed at the 2011 Canada Day concert on Parliament Hill, which included Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge respectively, in attendance, as part of their 2011 royal tour of Canada.

On July 20, 2011, Aragon arrived in the Philippines where she signed a contract with Star Records. Maria still continues to make music and continues to share her gift with the world.
