Maria Aragon, backed by the Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir, sings her benefit single, United We stand, at Private Ear recording studio.

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 which 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.
