Still in Middle School, Ann Gray '24 is already making a name for herself in music circles, across Hampton Roads and beyond.
Ann Gray has been writing and performing original songs for more than two years, beginning at Norfolk Academy talent shows. Before the worldwide pandemic, she would perform at open mic events.
