Harmonious, powerful, and compelling are just a few words used to describe Dana Harper’s sound, along with her energy. This Dallas native is equipped with brains and a rich tone that will captivate you and leave you wanting more. Her originality, and hints of nostalgia in her lyrics and sound, are breath-taking. Simply put, Dana is undoubtedly a force of nature.

Recognized as early as 10 years old for her strong vocals, music has been her fate from the very beginning. All throughout her school career, she positioned herself to be a musical phenom, attending institutes that would suit her with the right tools for her future extensive music career. From 2009 to 2011, Harper studied Musical Theatre at Pace University, and immediately continued expanding her talents by attending The New School University from 2011 to 2012, studying Liberal Arts. During this time, she would network and form unbelievable relationships that would propel her into the launch of her first album, Be Alive, released in 2010.

Dana’s music has already received a great amount of attention. Performing the National Anthem at both NBA’s Dallas Mavericks game and a separate performance at a New York Knicks game, has ensured a future full of potential. She’s also appeared on cable TV’s BET network, on the hit music segment, 106 & Park and Amateur Night at the Apollo where she took home second place. If that’s not enough, Harper also performed at NBA All Star 2009 MVP, Dwayne Wade’s charity event, during the 2010 All Star Weekend.

With a resume most artists would only dream of, Harper only plans to increase. Most recently you may have had the pleasure of watching Dana in the Top 20 on NBC’s hit reality TV show “The Voice,” as a member of Blake Shelton’s Team.

It is rare to find such an empowering young songbird (especially in this day and age), but Dana Harper is truly the essence thereof.
