Lady Gaga's newest single "Born This Way" hatched earlier this month and has since been burning up the airwaves. Maria Aragon, the most recent in a line of Greyson Chance-esque Youtube wunderkind cover artists, posted a stripped down piano-based version of the Gaga track several days ago which has already garnered the acclaim of the singer herself. "Can't stop crying watching this," Gaga tweeted in reaction to the video. "This is why I make music. She is the future." Lady G. even linked to her video, ensuring young Maria's internet-wide fame.
Coming from the lips of a mightily talented ten year old, Gaga's lyrics take on a new resonance. Despite performing the song at the Grammys after having recently emerged from an egg, lines like "I'm on the right track baby, I was born this way," seem to demonstrate a more literal truth in the hands of such a talented youngster.
