This Boy That Girl are a brother / sister, pop / hip hop duo from Los Angeles that recently came to our attention. While they may still be very young, they’re already showing their professional chops, having been chosen to support Aaron Carter on his current, major North American tour. Between performing, travelling and whatever else the siblings have on their plate at the moment, we asked them if they could answer our Quickfire Questions, and they kindly obliged. Have a read of their answers below.
