Maria Aragon now an international product endorser

The young Fil-Canadian singer whose video reached 28 million views in six weeks on the YouTube video-sharing site, is now part of a mobile phone commercial being shown abroad.

Ten-year old Maria Aragon appears on an HTC commercial that makes references to popular social network websites such as Twitter and Foursquare. The commercial quips such catchy phrases as “You are the next Trending Topic” and the “You are the next mayor of this bar.”

Maria got to play the keyboards once again while singing the lines “When I get older / I will be stronger” from the song “Wavin’ Flag” by K’Naan as the statement, “You are the next sensation,” is said on the commercial.

The advertisement also endorses the California-based “Surfrider Foundation USA”, a non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world’s oceans, waves, and focuses on works sustaining marine and coastal ecosystems.

Aragon caught the netizens’ attention last February when she shared a video of herself singing a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”

Overwhelmed by the girl’s performance, Lady Gaga included Aragon in her concert at the Air Canada Centre last March 3.
