Q HARPER~ Quintin Harper was born the 11th of 12 kids. His musical journey began at age 5 when he started singing with his family’s Gospel group, “The Sensational Harper Singers”. The 9 years that they sang together at Greater Grace Church in Detroit and numerous churches throughout the Midwest and South gave him his singing foundation. MAll throughout this period, Q received in-home vocal training from his dad who was a professional singer and friend of the great Sam Cooke. That private mentorship served him well. Other formal training came from performing with the Jazz Band at Finney High School. In his early 20s, Q paired-up with his sister, Jacqueline, to form a duet and they toured together for 5 years. Two special highlights include appearances in the production, “Motown Gospel Apollo”, and also on the “Super Singer” Contest televised live by WDIV-TV to and audience of 300,000 people for the 4th of July Fireworks Show. But while Q’s roots lay in Gospel, R&B and Soul music was slowly transforming him into the singer he is today.
