"Pop Bliss" is how I describe this lovely lady that I'm about to introduce to you. She's that kind of feel-good, happy, bubblegum pop that makes you smile. This particular lady I'm talking about goes by the name of Charity Vance, and she's very very talented. She's also very pretty too!
I've been a fan of Charity since her single "Icing" a few years back, and the talented girl who some of you may recognize from American Idol, has certainly grown up a bit bit now. Charity was kind enough to answer some questions for us, so let's go!
Hey Charity, thanks for taking the time to talk to us here at Popshade! Why don't you tell people a bit about who you are and what yo do?
Thank YOU! I am a pop singer and avid songwriter in Nashville, TN. I grew up on the musical theatre stage which is where I found my voice. Playing the piano and being apart of large musical productions is what drives me and my music.
How would you describe your sound?
Right now I am transitioning from the indie pop scene that keeps me at my piano to a full blown pop sound. While the essence of my music remains the same: bubbly // pop // contagious... Now I get to tie in my musical theatre roots with dancing and a live show!
Who would you compare yourself to in the industry right now?
A lot of people will know you from American Idol, but how have you & your music changed since then?
Well considering the fact I was 16 when I was on the show, a lot. Tehee. Shortly after my American Idol run I picked up my things and moved to Nashville on my own to pursue my dream of being a pop artist. In these recent years I have been mentored by some of the best writers in Nashville and played countless shows developing my craft. So I'm beyond excited to start releasing these new singles!
We love your new single "Picture Perfect"! But, what does it mean to you?
Just that. "I'm your girl.. Yeah I'll be your baby." I wanna be America's baby. Just kidding. I wrote it with a dear and very talented producer, Cody Falkosky. I remember being 16 and dreaming about that "perfect" guy and knowing that if he'd just notice me he'd realize we could rule the world together. I wanted to capture that dream and the of hope we all have in a picture perfect love.
We imagine after your appearences on TV, you've had a few crazy fans. What's the best/weirdest thing a fan has done for you?
Ok, real talk. Nothing is too crazy, I love my fans. While I was on the show, I was going through fan mail and I kept receiving drawings from the sweetest little girl. Her mother soon e-mailed me and invited me to model in the Spring 2011 Vera Bradley calendar. I flew out to Santa Monica to model for the issue- which was a blast because one of my biggest passions is fashion... I mean I was raised in a salon by two stylists... you can imagine!
What can people expect if they pop down to see one of your shows?
Endless energy, dancing, and I might rap a little..
And finally, where can fans (or new fans) find you?
I'd like to thank Charity for taking the time to answer these questions!
Well, as you can see, Charity is clearly a lovely girl. Who also happens to be ridiculously talented. Like I've said, I've been a fan of her for a while, so to have her take the time out to talk to me feels like quite an honour.
Anyways, the lovely lady has a new single out as we just mentioned. "Picture Perfect" it is called, and let me tell you, it is AMAZING! I can't wait for you guys to hear it. So, go an get it on iTunes now!
