HARPER shares new single ‘I Hope You Choke’; Download Festival in June




HARPER, the incredible 12-year-old vocalist who took the internet by storm with her mind-blowing cover of Spiritbox’s Holy Roller and captured the hearts of millions as a contestant on America’s Got Talent, has today unveiled her latest track.
