Toni's Treasures Forever
Harper paired with Herb Jeffries for "You're Too Tall 'n' I'm Too Small", the number for which she later paired live with Calloway at Los Angeles' Million Dollar Theatre. Television beckoned the young singer and she was a guest on numerous programs, among them Sullivan's weekly variety show. When she wasn't appearing on television, she was singing at numerous New York hot spots that included the Apollo, the Strand, and the Paramount. At the age of 11, Harper topped it all off by singing at Carnegie Hall. Like many child stars, Harper's career slowed down as she began to mature.
As a teenager, she was too old for the childhood image that had given her a great start, but too young to effectively take on a more adult image. She attended high school in Los Angeles, involving herself in such extracurricular activities as drama, choir, and the glee club. She continued to take professional singing jobs during the school's summer break. Having completed high school in the mid-'50's, and still hampered by her youth, she sang for the teenaged record-buying public.
The vocalist got her chance to sing the more adult songs when she recorded for Verve. In addition to "Love for Sale", Harper recorded such songs as "I Could Write a Book" and "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered". Backing Harper on her self-titled first recording for Verve were pianist Oscar Peterson, drummer Alvin Stoller, guitarist Herb Ellis, and bassist Ray Brown. The vocalist later signed with RCA Victor, recording for the label for about four years and ending in 1963. Harper quit the business in 1966 after devoting more than 20 years to her singing career."
