  • Charity Vance plays Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts Saturday night.

7 p.m. Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts. $15-$50.

Performer. Songwriter. "American Idol" contestant. Teen-ager. Charity Vance is all of these and more.

The Little Rock native has been in the spotlight since she was a young'un, singing the National Anthem at Verizon Arena and at Riverfest and whatnot. Also, she moved to Nashville recently. That's right: The Music City.

In one of her latest interviews, Charity said some things that might be useful to you in your life if only you could stop being such a cynical jerk for one minute (Charity didn't say that part because she would never judge you; I'm saying that, but I'm saying it from a place of love and concern).

Among them: She wants to bring a lot of hope to people and take them away; her inspiration for songs comes a lot from nature, and from both cloudy and sunny days; fear can defeat you (if you let it) or it can push you to success; her all-time favorite performer is Celine Dion.

When you go to her website her song "Walk in the Park" starts playing and it sounds really good. But you know what also sounds good? Opening about 15 browser tabs, all playing "Walk in the Park," that's what. It holds up! It's just that kind of song, where you can listen to it once, or you can listen to it 15 times, or you can listen to it 15 times all at once and it sounds awesome all three ways!
