Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Maria Aragon united with victims of typhoon Haiyan

  • Print

UNITED We Stand, Maria Aragon's fundraising single for the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, is now available on iTunes for $1.29.

The Winnipeg YouTube singing star recorded the benefit song in a city studio last month but its availability was delayed as processing at Apple took longer than anticipated. The 13-year-old Isaac Brock School student was anxious to help the 1.8 million Filipinos displaced by the powerful storm that ravaged her parents' homeland last August.

The four-minute song, penned by former Manitoban Naomi Streimer, features Aragon backed by the all-Filipino Highlights Choir and Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir. All the proceeds from sales of United We Stand will go to the Philippines relief effort.
