Blue-eyed soul gospel singer Charity Von weighs in with debut album.

A NEW singer from Kansas City, Charity Von, was described as a Christian alternative to Joss Stone in a recent issue of USA's Christian Retailing magazine. Reviewing Charity's eponymous album on Spring Hill, Christian Retailing wrote, "while bluesy teen singer Joss Stone wails aloud in the general market, her heavenly-focused vocal counterpart arrives in the form of 19-year old Charity Von." The album, produced by Billy Smiley, includes a cover of Collective Soul's US hit "Shine". CR
