Butterfly Ali has returns to share an acoustic rendition of his latest release.

Stripping back the smooth and soul-filled groove of the original, this acoustic version of ‘Pray For ‘Em’ sees him adopt little more than some light percussion and keys to create a far more intimate listening experience. Bringing back the same emotive passion as the original single, we now get a chance to fully appreciate and understand the powerful lyrics at the heart of this wonderful offering.

Speaking about the new acoustic version, he said, “I did this acoustic version of ‘Pray For ’Em’ with Aaron Kellim because I wanted to show the truth & reality of the song’s content and story behind why I wrote it. I added some spoken word sections that really enhance the message within the lyrics, really pressing home that racism & racial injustice are very much alive and real. It felt organic so I went with it. I love being able to share an acoustic version of a song because it allows the listener to really tune in on the lyrics and melodic nuances that can sometimes be masked by a driving production.”

Having already made a name for himself as a renowned actor after appearing in recurring roles for hit TV shows such as Pretty Little Liars, The Rookie and Glee, vocalist and songwriter Titus Makin aka Butterfly Ali has also been making a huge impression on the music scene of late with his previously shared singles ‘Rose’ , ‘Righteous’ and most recently ‘5 Minutes’.
