Paris Grey (born Shanna Jackson, November 5, 1965, Glencoe, Illinois, United States) is an American singer, most known for her work with the Detroit-based techno-music producer Kevin Saunderson, as Inner City.[1] The group found international crossover success in the late 1980s and early 1990s with a mixture of electronic beats, sweeping synthetic strings, and Paris's soulful vocals on tracks such as "Good Life," "Big Fun," and "Ain't Nobody Better."

Grey recorded three Inner City albums, a Detroit techno compilation album, and an extended remix collection of Inner City tracks. A notable project for Grey prior to joining Inner City was the Chicago House 12-inch club hit "Don't Make Me Jack (Tonite I Wanna House You)" on Housetime Records. Originally, Grey sang gospel music.
