Carpinteria, CA- Headlining the Santa Barbara Polo & Wine Festival was the inimitable soul singer Macy Gray. As a late addition to the festival’s line-up due to the untimely passing of the venerable Charles Bradley, Macy brought her instantly recognizable voice to the evening’s final performance, playing hits from across her multi-genre career as well as surprising us with a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.”

“There are three things I learned about you tonight,” she said near the end of her set. “You are so beautiful when you wave your hands. You are especially beautiful when you shake your ass. And you are especially beautiful when you throw your head back toward the heavens and sing so I can hear you. So when things get crazy for you, remember you’re beautiful, OK?”

After doling out all those warm fuzzies, Gray poked fun at the polo field’s early curfew — “Well, apparently y’all are teenagers and you’ve got to be home by 7:30 for dinner” — and launched into “I Try,” her best-known track that also earned her a Grammy in 2001. Macy, you told us we were beautiful when we sing, and to that I say… we tried. But Gray showed that she’s as dynamic a singer as ever, especially for stepping into the festival on short notice.
