I am super proud of this little fella, because she's Filipino and she's also just a very talented young lass and really have a good head on her shoulders, too! Apparently, Lady Gaga saw her video posted on youtube and asked her to have a duet with her in Toronto. She also sang for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Can you imagine, she's just 11 years old and is very mature for her age. In her interview with KC Concepcion on The Buzz, a local showbiz talk show in the Philippines, she said, "I cried when I saw that there are kids in my country who has no food and homeless on the streets and said to herself that she felt blessed and one of the privilege." She's born and raised in Winnepeg, Canada. I was so touched and actually cried watching her on tv.
Watching her on youtube makes me proud of myself growing up, that yes, I can say that I was also one of the few who can say that, "Dreams do come true." Sometimes people belittle you and underestimate your capacity and talent. However, you can't hide and stop the fire of passion that's burning from within you make a good influence to others along the way. She can be a good example to young kids growing up. Way to go, Maria Aragon! We'll cheer you on!
I remembered a verse growing up, King James Bible
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
