Charity Vance sent us a lovely email recently which is included here by permission:
"I just want to tell you thanks!! I was on "American Idol" this season and since have made a CD in Nashville and it is going to be released in early June. Your website has been very very helpful to me in so many ways!! I am a 17 year old singer/songwriter with a dream. I am infatuated with the thought of one day coming to the UK to sing, because many of the artists I love come from there. Thanks again for all you do here to make our job easier!! A Hopeful Girl," Charity Vance
