Macy Gray is a Grammy Award winning singer and mother of aspiring artist Aanisah Hinds,17. When recently asked about education in the arts, Macy said, “Education in the arts is important for everyone. Self expression is definitely key to learning and developing as an individual. When you discover something that you like doing and that you’re good at you’re going to shine in so many areas because you feel good about yourself.”
Gray recently released her newest album “Covered,” which is a compilation of favorite tunes previously produced by other artists. When asked about her motivation for the new project Macy said, “[My children] get on Facebook and share songs and a lot of songs have become popular that way, just from kids liking them and passing them on to their friends, actually kids have been part of the process lately, my kids have definitely shown me a lot of different albums.”
Macy has three children in all.
