Performing at a pre-dinner rally held outside Des Moines’ Wells Fargo Arena, where the evening’s event took place, Harper endorsed Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind.
During opening number “People Lead,” he reworked his lyrics: “When Pete takes the lead,” he emphasized about the presidential hopeful during the song’s chorus.
Harper also played “With My Own Two Hands” and “Call It What It Is” to the rally crowd.
“Pete Buttigieg for president,” he shouted at the end of his set, which can be viewed in the video below.
