Maria Aragon wishes to duet with Manny Pacquaio

Maria Aragon left the Philippines and went back to Canada last September 8, now she returns to shoot a holiday commercial for a shopping mall.

The Filipino-Canadian YouTube sensation will be promoting her self-titled album in selected stores in the country.

She will also hold a “meet and greet” activity. “I would love to see my fans at my mall tours” she said in her twitter account.

The 11 year old YouTube star signed a contract with Star Records. After her fame when she sang Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” on YouTube, she is set to sing the Philippine National Anthem for the upcoming “Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez” bout.

You’ll hear songs like ‘Born This Way’ and ‘Kung Bubuksan Mo Lang ang Puso,’ at her ABS CBN shows.

She is a Pinoy Pride because Lady Gaga talked to her on the phone and invited her to appear in her concert in Toronto after being seen in YouTube. Maria performed ‘Born This Way’ in Lady Gaga’s concert while she (Maria) played the piano. Maria even sat on Lady Gaga’s lap.

Aside from Lady Gaga, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is also her fan, Maria performed Canada’s national anthem before Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton during Canada Day. Apparently, Maria cannot speak Filipino fluently but she has a message to Filipino fans. “Mabuhay sa inyong lahat. Gusto ko sabihin na salamat sa lahat ng sumuporta sa akin. Grateful ako na andito ako.”

Maria and her family are great boxing fans. “I know it by heart but we still need to practice to get it perfect and ready for the fight and so that my tagalog sounds better!”

Thats why Maria promised her family assurance of front row seats for the “Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez” bout.

She also wishes to have a duet with People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao.

“He’s a pretty good singer too and I’d really get a chance to sing with him maybe,” Maria giggles.
