12-Year-Old Harper Covers Bring Me The Horizon Smash Hit

Harper, the remarkable 12-year-old vocalist who skyrocketed to internet fame with her astonishing rendition of Spiritbox’s Holy Roller and won the affection of millions as a contestant on America’s Got Talent last year, has unveiled her latest official single.

This new release, Chelsea Smile, is a scorching cover of the Bring Me The Horizon hit single, originally featured on their 2008 album Suicide Season.

Notably, this isn’t her first encounter with BMTH, as she previously shared a casual cover of Shadow Moses from the band in May, which swiftly garnered 95k views on YouTube.

Harper massed a legion of new fans when she auditioned for the prime-time NBC show America’s Got Talent, performing Holy Roller. Her rendition garnered an additional 2.9 million views on YouTube, leaving both the judges and the 4,000-strong audience in awe of her remarkable vocal abilities.

Last summer, she had the privilege of joining Spiritbox for a live performance of Holy Roller at their sold-out show in London, UK.

In 2022, she made her debut with the single Falling and announced her signing with Pale Chord Records. This track, co-written and produced with the assistance of Chris Wiseman (known for Shadow of Intent and Currents) and Ben Lumber (from Acres), has amassed over 827,000 streams on Spotify and 502,000 YouTube views.

Her momentum continued into 2023 with the release of “Weight Of The World, where Harper shattered age-related stereotypes and showcased her ability to convey raw emotion and power through heavy music, accumulating an additional 1.5 million streams and over 700,000 YouTube views.

Every day, Harper’s musical talent continues to flourish, a testament to her unwavering determination and passion. This is merely the inception of an extraordinary journey for this young superstar.
