Former FC Dallas Anthem Singer Harper Grace Auditions for American Idol

Harper Grace. If that name doesn't ring a bell for FC Dallas fans, it will after tonight. 

When Harper was 11 years old, she sang the national anthem before the FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy match in July 2012. "If you search worst national anthem, mine is the very first that pops up next to Christina Aguilera and Roseanne Barr," she told Ryan Seacrest.

But six years later, she's come a long way. On the American Idol season 16 premiere, Harper showed America she's blossomed into quite the young talent and impressed the likes of Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. 

Didn't catch the premiere? Look no further. Watch the clip below. No matter what happens with her career after American Idol, we have to invite her back, right?
