10-Year-Old's "Born This Way" Cover (VIDEO) Makes Lady Gaga Cry

(CBS) Ten-year-old Maria Lourdes Aragon could be on her way to becoming a star and she's certainly gotten the attention of one.

Shortly after posting her own rendition of Lady Gaga's "Born this Way" on YouTube, Gaga saw it and tweeted her emotional reaction to the video: "Can't stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future."

UPDATE: Maria Lourdes actually got to speak with Lady Gaga following the media swell over the video.

Well Gaga may want to keep the Kleenex handy because Maria isn't the only kid covering her tunes. There is also 8-year-old MattyB who does a rap rendition.

Who has the better Lady Gaga cover, Maria or Matty B?
