Bri'Anna Harper stunned the world with her singing on the show earlier this month, where she performed her rendition of The Jackson 5 classic "Who's Lovin' You." Bri'Anna captured the attention of millions of people from around the world after a clip of her singing the tune went viral on Twitter.

After her performance, Ellen stunned Bri'Anna and her mom, E'Boni, with the new car. E'Boni said a Honda Pilot was her dream car.

The family says Bri'Anna started singing when she was five years old. They met up with News 3's Kim Cung at a Chesapeake park after they returned from their whirlwind trip to Los Angeles.

The Harpers tell News 3 they're still overwhelmed with joy.

"We hope the same happens to someone else unexpectedly. That's what we really hope, that's what we really wish for: that someone gets blessed the same way - if not more -  the way that we did," E'Boni said.

The Harpers took their new Honda Pilot home this afternoon.
