Is Lady Gaga performer Maria Aragon the next Charice?

Earlier this year, a 11-year old by the name of Maria Aragon made it big almost out of nowhere thanks to her interpretation of Lady Gaga‘s hit “Born This Way” — something that inspired Gaga herself to bring her out on stage during a concert.

Now, Aragon is getting her opportunity to perform at the next level — as a solo act. According to a new report, Aragon has signed a two-album deal with Star Records in The Philippines. The move does not come as a major surprise considering that Aragon is in fact of Filipino descent, and the Asian market (particularly in music) has been booming over the past few years. Not only have The Philippines welcomed a number of A-list talents to their country over the years to perform, they also have an international superstar of their own in Charice Pempengco — who has worked under the guidance of mega-producer David Foster.

Based on everything you have seen of Aragon so far, do you think she is definitely worthy of getting a record deal? You can check out one of the youngster’s many videos below.
