Maria Aragon performs duet with Lady Gaga 1MANILA, Philippines - (1st UPDATE) YouTube singing sensation Maria Aragon's dream came true when she performed a duet with her idol Lady Gaga at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada Thursday night (Friday morning in Manila).

Videos of the concert showed the 10-year-old Aragon sitting on Lady Gaga's lap while singing the hit song "Born This Way."

After the performance, Lady Gaga kissed Aragon as she turned emotional listening to Aragon's words.

Aragon expressed her appreciation to Gaga for giving her the chance to perform with her.

"I wanted to say I'm just really grateful for you, for all of you, for all the support. I am actually from Winnipeg and I came over, I was invited," Aragon said.

Gaga responded by saying she was touched by Aragon and that she's also happy to meet the girl.

"Thank you for being here tonight, it's such a beautiful night," Gaga said.

Aragon shot to Internet celebrity status after her YouTube video of Gaga's song caught the pop superstar's attention.

Gaga posted Aragon's video on her official Twitter account and described the young Fil-Canadian as “the future."

Aragon's YouTube video has been viewed at least 17 million times.

She also thanked Aragon for giving her song “a life.”

In their conversation over the phone last February 18, Gaga invited Aragon to sing with her on stage at her concert.

Aragon has appeared in the hit US talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Good Morning America." 

Aragon arrived in Toronto early this week for Gaga’s concert, which is part of Lady Gaga's 2011 Monster Ball Tour.

The 10-year-old singer was accompanied by her parents, sister and brother Rojuane, who posted Aragon's videos on YouTube.
