American r&b and soul singer Macy Gray and Israeli singer-songwriter Harel Skaat headline tonight’s Keshet Chaim Dance Ensemble benefit concert, which celebrates the connection and diversity of the world’s cultures through music and dance.
Singer Macy Gray, after asking fans in a Facebook message whether to cancel her concert dates in Tel Aviv, said on Twitter that she will play in Israel as scheduled. "Dear Israel fans. Me and the band will be there in 20 days. Can't wait. See you then. Peace," read the Twitter message sent Wednesday night by the R&B and soul singer. Gray is scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv on Feb. 11 and 12.
R&B and soul-singer Macy Gray has asked her fans in a message on her Facebook status whether she should cancel scheduled concerts in Tel Aviv "in protest of Apartheid against the Palestinians." "I'm booked for 2 shows in TelAviv. I'm getting alot of letters from activists urging/begging me to boycott by NOT performing in protest of Apartheid against the Palestinians. What the Israeli government is doing to the Palestinians is disgusting, but I wana go. I gotta lotta fans there I dont want to cancel on and I dont know how my NOT going changes anything. What do you think? Stay or go?" read the status posted Monday night.
