Maria Aragon, Lady Gaga and the Power of Social Media

We all know the story of Justin Beiber. He was a talented little kid who sang his heart out and was all over YouTube. One audition with Usher and millions of dollars later, the kid is a phenomenon.

Enter Maria Aragon, who seems to be headed towards Beiber fever.

Like Justin, Maria has a video on YouTube that showcases her talents. In this case, she's covering the Lady Gaga song, "Born this Way."

Somehow, Gaga found this video and tweeted it. As a result, the video has received a slew of views and in fact, Gaga welcomed Aragon to her live show where the tandem performed the song together.

That, my friends, is the power of social media.
