Killed By Cops ~ with Macy Gray, Grammy Award Winning Artist
What is the impact when someone is killed by cops? How does it impact families of the victim and the community.
Macy Gray occupies a rare space in the canon of modern music. That unmistakable rasp, unshakable grasp on soul, and funky spirit ensured her status as a 21st century icon since her arrival with the triple-platinum How Life Is in 1999. Selling over 25 million total albums globally, winning a GRAMMY® Award and two BRIT Awards, collaborating with everyone from Ariana Grande to Galactic, and enchanting fans all over the world. Macy Gray has consistently resounded throughout pop culture, transcending all genres and building a devout, diverse fan base that spans generations of people who celebrate her work — album after album and tour after tour.
As an actress, Macy has starred in Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls and would grace the screen everywhere from Brotherly Love and Cardboard Boxer to NETFLIX’s hit Fuller House. Moreover, her legendary appearance in Training Day alongside Academy® Award winner Denzel Washington—one of many on-screen hallmarks.
Macy continues to create new content and bring a view that is reflective of where she has been, where she is and where she wants to go. At the same time, she remains a force of nature on tour, selling out venues in nearly every corner of the globe.
On another scale, Macy is committed to using her platform as an artist for those who are unheard and has taken a stand for mental health through founding the nonprofit organization, My Good. Through My Good, she is working closely with the families of individuals who have been affected by police and unjust brutality to ensure their voices are heard and to support their wellbeing.
