Macy Gray channels Michael Jackson for stage show

Macy Gray unleashed her inner Michael Jackson on Thursday by performing a rendition of Rock With You on the West End stage.

The I Try hitmaker joined the cast of the Jackson-themed show Thriller - Live in London as part of the BBC's annual Pop Goes the Musical! fundraiser in aid of Children in Need.

Gray was joined by backing singers as she performed the iconic star's 1979 hit, and she later told of her delight at being part of the evening's entertainment.

The singer says, "It's great to be back in the UK supporting BBC Children in Need. The songs of Michael Jackson are so iconic, his music was and is such an important part of my life. It's amazing to be performing one of his songs, being on a West End stage makes it even more special."
