Gray gave her own twist to the neo-soul movement at the end of the 90s: no mouthy copper of psychedelic guitar, but a subdued style with jazzy-escorts. The worldwide hit ‘I Try’ meant her big breakthrough. Macy Gray wasn’t only loved by the public. She worked with among others The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim, Eryka Badu and in 2016 with Ariana Grande! Her talent for music wasn’t the only thing she was known for. Her talent for acting didn’t stay unnoticed and she played in famous movies like Spiderman, The Paperboy and Scary Movie 3.
