Last week on “American Idol,” Charity Vance, a 16-year-old Arkansas Baptist High School student and vet of the Rep's Summer Musical Theater Intensive, made it to the Hollywood round, got a “pimp” promotional spot from producers and heard only praises from the judges, including “on a record you'd sound great,” from Simon Cowell. You can see her screen time on Rock Candy.
