Grammy award-winning singer Macy Gray ended her Tel Aviv concert Saturday night with a special gesture of goodwill to her Israeli fans, donating a $25,000 first response motorcycle to the charity organization "United Hatzalah".

The motorcycle includes a life-support system and state-of-the-art first aid equipment, and was presented by Gray to three volunteers from the organization who joined her on stage at the end of the concert.



When presenting the motorcycle, Gray said it was meant "to save the lives of Jews, Christians, and Muslims" in Israel, without any differentiation of religion.

Gray made the decision to pay her third visit to Israel after she was pressured to join artistic boycotts against the country. Gray decided to leave the issue up to her fans, and asked them to comment on a Facebook page on whether or not she should perform in Israel.
