She launched her adult solo career in the 1950s, shooting to fame with numerous hits. Ms. Gray has appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, Jack Paar’s Tonight Show and has performed at the Grand Old Opry.  Lydia Gray has performed across the United States including New York City’s famed Algonquin Oak Room and Cafe Pierre,  and was nominated for the MAC award.
