Alicia Keys has another socially conscious song for fans. Following the protests in her hometown of New York Wednesday night, the singer released "We Gotta Pray."
Alicia quietly dropped "We Gotta Pray" hours after a grand jury failed to indict the NYPD officer who made headlines for his deadly "chokehold" arrest of Eric Garner last July.
In her lyrics, she urges those frustrated with the decision to maintain the peace and show compassion. A video accompanying the ballad combines moving footage from the recent protests in Ferguson, Missouri with footage of the protests led by Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.
Keys is pregnant and expecting her second child in a matter of weeks.
