Macy Gray asks her fans for opinions on political matters

American singer-songwriter Macy Gray has taken to social networking site Facebook to ask her fans their opinions on a political matter. 

The 'I Try' songstress wrote:

"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?"

Billboard.com reports that the star received over 4,000 'often impassioned' messages, which persuaded her to go ahead with the dates, and she then tweeted:

"Dear Israel fans. Me and the band will be there in 20 days. Can't wait. See you then. Peace"
