Singer Macy Gray, who has two concerts planned in Tel Aviv, turned to her fans via facebook this week, asking them whether she shoulod cancel the shows "in protest of Apartheid against the Palestinians."

"I'm booked for two shows in Tel Aviv," Gray wrote. "I'm getting a lot of letters from activists urging and 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 want to go. I have a lot of fans there that I don't want to cancel on, and I don't know how my not going changes anything. What do you think? Stay or go?"

Nearly 1,000 people reacted to Gray's status update, with the majority writing messages like "cultural boycott is an integral part of the fight against apartheid" and "cancel your tour and stand up for human rights."
