Macy is one of the nicest people ever. She sent her hair stylist to my hotel in LA to do my hair when I was there on holliday ..’


Then invited me to her concert all after she gave me a great one hour live interview in London with come hang with me in Mahikki after her KoKo Club gig in London.


She trusted me so much she told me things, not to put in the interview, which I didn’t and have never told anyone. How cool is she ..’ Omg !!! She is the effing sh*t. The coolest pop star ever ..’


More stars should be down like her, real, and Godly like her ..’ Love her to death !!! #MercyfulGrace

I had interviewed Macy Gray about a month prior to her Koko Gig. We got on very well and it felt like I was talking to an old friend rather than a grammy award winning artiste and international iconic soul songstress which made my job easier. Then right at the end, she said she’d like to invite me to her Koko Gig and send me some tickets.

Macy Gray

She was so sweet to me. I was pleased but surprised at the same time at her generosity and realness. It made me wonder if she was that real. So I had to take a dive and oblige out of a major curiosity. She asked what I was doing that evening. I was even more shell shocked that I didn’t even know how the words yes or no, left my lips.

So, I went to the gig on her invitation and was blown away by the utter surprise I received. I was expecting, a retro, laid back acoustic thing. But to my astonishment, Macy pulled out all the stops.10523995_10152483006306553_6565302894702147960_n From the costumes, to the background vocals, the lighting, the staging, the band, the song arrangements – it was pure exquisite soul heaven.

When Macy Gray sings, she means every word, every phrase, and every breath she takes is with tuneful precision and soulful sincerity. A thing rare in this industry, now a days. As many are in it for the money and not the art anymore. Not Macy Gray!

My soul thought I had died and was having a dinner party with all my favourite Soul Diva’s & Divos, in a banqueting hall, in heaven. I promise you; Mahillia Jackson, Billy Holliday, Whitney Houston, Bob Marley, and Elvis were there too.

It was ecclesiastical and I was truly moved from within. When she sang You and I, the Stevie Wonder cover from ‘Talking Book’, her latest album – (her Stevie Wonder remake), I thought to myself, oh my God – you have gone and done it now. My inner eyes opened.

Perhaps, that was too much for wishful thinking; but my eyes did open. Nevertheless, her moments were momentous, glorious, unforgettable lyrical and melodic harmonic bliss to my wandering, bewildered, soul. I was delighted all over to say the least. My reaction, was unquestionably noticed by a few by standers and perhaps, by her from the stage. Something just clicked inside – instantly.

At some point I noticed her to be mirroring my movement to the music, from afar, on stage – when she was intimately, delightfully belting out an acoustic number, whilst sitting down over an electric guitar accompaniment by the second leg of the concert. What more could you ask of Macy Gray. Pure Class!

Macy and her band are all about Love. The world needs it, the economy needs it, the politicians sure do need it too. So, there we were, with the wonderful Macy Gray, before she proceeded to share her specially made, enormous, appetising on the eye, golden brown  ‘Talking Book’ chocolate cake with all her fans and partied on further, for a few a hours at the Mahiki Night Club in Mayfair – where I met up with her again.

MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Macy Gray’ – Phenomenal :: By Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest

The legendary Soul Singer Macy Gray wrote a play for Black History month, in California, Los Angeles; appropriately titled – PHENOMENAL.

{Hands – the new single, from the album ‘The Way’}

This was remarkable, as she used this platform to educate – black, white, asian and latin american communities the importance of their history – with a clear cultural awareness. The play was performed by school children who are just learning about life’s struggles, pit falls and triumphs.

Phenomenal was a success and she rounded off the show by singing her classic – I TRY, acoustically, accompanied on a baby grand piano to the delight of a filled auditorium of public, parents, friends, families and the next generation of American Scholars, comprising of youths and young adults.
