[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] is not the only one who inspires us. Her Little Monsters are loyal, equally as creative, and as evidenced from the “Born This Way” tattoo on an Australian super-fan above–massively devoted.
Part of the reason that Gaga’s Monsters feel such a kinship with her is her musical ability to connect and understand them, no matter what their race, religion, interests, or sexual orientation is. She accepts them for who they are and says they are “Born This Way.”
In honor of Lady Gaga’s life-affirming song, we’ve greatest a list of our Top 10 Inspiring YouTube Covers Of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way.’
With their youthful, soft rock voices, Tyler and Alex take the lyrics of Gaga’s considerably provocative song and make it sound sweet and innocent as cherry pie in the park.
9. Alex Goot
We’re not huge fans of the sped up tempo on this song, but Alex Goot’s raspy toned voice and the slight pop-punk rhythm is a catchy new way to listen to “Born This Way.”
Who doesn’t love an adorable Swede? And with his newsboy cap and bare feet, we feel like he’s singing us the Lady Gaga version of a song from Newsies.
Classical versions of pop songs are our favorite guilty pleasure. They are a great way to learn how to love the complexity and magic of classical music without going totally Baroque.
Aston makes “Born This Way” feel bright, breezy, and happy. Not at all stuffy like classic classical.
Beatboxing always amazes us. How does one person make that many noises with their mouth. Well, we have the answer: they were “Born This Way.”
See what we did there?
5. Cameron J
Like your pop to have a more R&B slant? Cameron J gets deep with his sleek, sultry vocals.
He’s all that and a bag of chips. Literally. See what we mean.
4. Fynn Farrell
The United Kingdom’s Fynn Farrell is our new favorite vocalist we wish would become a pop star as soon as possible.
With his retro hair and soulful ’60s-esque voice, this kid not only has style, but that “something” that truly makes someone a success.
Karmin is the talent vocalist who busted out Busta Rhymes’ crazy parts on “Look At Me Now” and amazed the world. Her crazy-amazing breath control is even evident in her version of “Born This Way.”
An electro-pop version of the sound, Sam Tsui is adorable and his cover of the song makes it a happy-go-lucky dance hit complete with dynamic, glittering piano parts.
1. Maria Aragon
Maria Aragon is the lucky little girl who got to actually sing this song on stage with Lady Gaga after Gaga saw her cover. It’s apparent why: everytime we hear Aragon’s young voice sing this song with such sincerity, we get teary-eyed and goosebumps.
She makes us really believe that we are special and that we were “Born This Way.”
