Macy Gray is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress, famed for her distinctive raspy voice, and a singing style heavily influenced by Billie Holiday and Betty Davis.
Gray has released six studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one. She has appeared in a number of films including Training Day, Spider-Man, Scary Movie 3, Lackawanna Blues, Idlewild and For Colored Girls. Gray is best known for her international hit single "I Try," taken from her multi-platinum debut album On How Life Is.
In common with many performers sharing that constant need for approval, Macy always felt she didn't fit in. First, as a child, because of her squeaky voice, enormous feet and big head - fellow pupils cruelly nicknamed her Waterhead at school - and later as one of only 12 black girls at boarding school. She has not overcome the feeling. 'I still feel like I don't fit in,' she says. 'That's an all-round thing with me. Becoming famous and selling a lot of records doesn't change a thing.'
