He waved briefly to his family in the public gallery as he was brought up from the cells. Relatives of Ms Harrison, a mother of one, also attended courtroom four.
Judge Graham Cottle confirmed that a date for a three-week trial had been set for April 8 next year – almost exactly a year since the alleged offence.
He said it was the first date available for such a long and serious trial and approved a timetable between the defence and prosecution for exchanging papers.
Judge Cottle said the Crown Prosecution Service had acted with "due diligence" in preparing the case.
He extended the custody time limits until April, meaning Singer can be legally held in custody until the hearing.
Singer's address was given as Glendale Avenue in Salisbury.
Ms Harrison gave birth to her daughter Izzy when she was 22.
She had worked on the doors and bar of city centre nightclubs C103 and Envy as door and bar staff.
A former student at Tamarside Secondary School in Kings Tamerton and Plymouth College of Art, she enjoyed drawing and dancing.
After her death, her mother and her siblings were among those paying tribute.
Mum Sharon said she was "a bubbly, caring, loving and popular girl".
Younger brother Jareth said she was popular with "so many friends".
Ms Harrison's younger sister, Sara said: "I haven't got a sister to look up to any more. I'm all on my own and I'm going to miss everything about her."
