When a talented ten year old girl sang her version of Lady Gaga's new song, "Born This Way" on You Tube; it not only caught the attention of the singer but she became an overnight sensation.
A few days later, my brother messaged me and asked, "Can I be A.R's manager?"
I laughed and said, "Yes". However, I stated that I want my son to finish his education first. He attends a French Immersion school; he takes guitar lessons, sings, dances and loves to draw. I told my brother that I want my boys to be well-rounded. And to my surprise, he praised me for doing a good job so far.
Mr. O and I know A.R is talented, smart and charismatic. And we're very proud of his accomplishments.
The truth is, I just want my son to have a normal life; to be happy and have a wonderful childhood.
Not thrust into the media spotlight.
Besides, what's the rush? My son still has room to improve and grow. We know he has big dreams but I think it's best that we let him work hard, and decide what he wants to do with his life. And we'll support him wholeheartedly.
As for my dear brother, he will just have to wait until A.R is older.
And to Maria Aragon, keep singing your heart out! She's definitely a star in the making, and an inspiration to all little dreamers.
