Hear Alicia Key's heartfelt new track.
Alicia Keys has chosen to use song to make her voice heard on the events unfolding in Ferguson. The 'Empire State Of Mind' singer has penned and sung a new song titled 'We Gotta Pray,' released on her YouTube channel.
Against a backdrop of images of people protesting, quotes from Martin Luther King and Ghandi and posters that read "black lives matter," Alicia sings; "We gotta pray for the world tonight/ we gotta save, somebody save somebody tonight."
The song follows another emotional track Alicia released in the summer called 'We Are Here' that heard her sing about the conflict happening in Gaza and Israel.
