Just announced: Macy Gray to headline Glamorama

[Originally posted at Vita.mn online]

Grammy-winning singer Macy Gray - of the raspy voice and wacky fashion choices - has been announced as the headliner of Macy's Glamorama this summer. It's an interesting move for the Chicago-based retailer, provided the limited exposure the artist has received since her 1999 single "I Try" - but if initial reviews of her upcoming album The Sellout are any indication, she just may be a solid choice. The Minneapolis show will kick off what will be a four-city tour of the production including stops in L.A. and San Francisco - a sizable expansion for the long-running show, which previously had only taken place in Minneapolis and Chicago. The annual benefit for the Children's Cancer Research Fund will take place on August 6 at the Orpheum Theatre and include Fall 2010 runway fashions from Jean Paul Gaultier, Just Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Sonia Rykiel, SportMax, Versace for men, and Issey Miyake in its Glamorama debut. -Jahna Peloquin
