By now there is a decent chance you have heard the name Harper; she is a 10-year-old who got a lot of media attention a couple months ago for performing a cover of Spiritbox‘s “Holy Roller” on the TV show America’s Got Talent. Harper’s performance not only amazed the judges of that show, but also impressed the members of Spiritbox. The band invited her on stage for one of their shows to perform “Holy Roller” alongside them.
Well Harper is back again with another heavy performance, this time covering the metal remix of Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon‘s “Bad Habits.” The 10-year-old performed this song alongside a backing band during a recent appearance on America’s Got Talent. Alongside Harper’s screaming and that of the metal and electronic instrumentation, her performance also included some pyro! You can check out Harper’s performance of “Bad Habits” via the video below.
What do you think of Harper’s performance of “Bad Habits”? Back in June, Harper released her own song titled “Falling.” For that song, she joined forces with Shadow of Intent guitarist Chris Wiseman (who worked on the track).
