She decided to pursue a career in music. She found out that she has a passion in music when she agreed to write songs for a friend of hers and a demo session was scheduled for the songs to be recorded by another singer. She found herself recording them herself when the vocalist failed to turn up to record the songs. The demo tape created a lot of attention and thus landed this talented artist a chance to perform at jazz cafes in Los Angeles, California. Despite her dislike of her own voice, it garnered lots of attention around the jazz scene, and Atlantic Records signed her to their label. Macy Gray gave her demo album to Atlantic much to her dismay, after few months because of the record label being dissatisfied with her efforts. Because of this, she went back to Canton also because of going through a break-up of her marriage and expecting a third child. However, her demo tape is still doing the rounds and by 1998, she landed a record deal with Epic Records.

She continued to work on her debut album by year 1998. Entitled, On How Life Is, she released the album during the summer of 1999 and it became a worldwide smash. It was by word of mouth and the release of second single I Try that the album really became a success for Gray, in spite of the first single Do Something stalling on the charts. I Try was one of the biggest singles of 1999, and subsequent singles such as Still and Why Didn't You Call Me ensured the album becoming triple Platinum in the U.S. and in Canada and quadruple Platinum in the UK. By 2001, she won the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for the song I Try that was also nominated for Song of the Year as well as Record of the Year. In addition, she worked together with The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim as well as Slick Rick. Moreover, she also worked as an actress for the first time, for the movie, Training Day.

She released her second album, The Id by 2001. She appeared in Spider-Man as herself in 2002 and worked with Santana on the track, Amoré (Sexo), from his album Shaman. And by 2003, she released her third studio album entitled, The Trouble with Being Myself. The leas single When I See You turned out as a radio hit in the United States and a top forty hit in the United Kingdom, though the album was not as well received by fans. A greatest hits collection and a live album were subsequently released; The Very Best of Macy Gray in 2004 as well as Live in Las Vegas in 2005.

Presently, Macy Gray released four studio albums, one live album, and one compilation album, with her fourth studio album Big that was released in March of 2007. Furthermore, one track in the soundtrack of the 2006 film, Déjà vu featured her latest song, Coming Back to You. Macy Gray will continue to inspire us with her great talents and excellent songs. Her fantastic songs will pass on from generation to generation.
