Alicia Keys honored Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the release of an unheard track called "Power." The song, which Keys recorded seven years ago, is a fitting tribute to the civil rights hero. "This is a song about power that I wrote back in 2007 that I have never shared with my family until now," Keys wrote of the track on her website. "This is one of my favorite unreleased songs. I was looking for my power. This song says it all." The strong song has Keys crooning, "Grandma, used to say nothing before it was time / used to say that the world would be mine / so I should just have faith / she showed me, all I need in this life is for free / change is one thing that is guaranteed / so I should just keep pace." Take a listen to Keys' "Power" below.
