Even if politics aren’t your thing, it’s been pretty hard to ignore the situation in America over the last 18 months or so. The country has become increasingly polarised, with racial, political and social unrest becoming a common phenomenon. One man looking to reverse this worrying trend through his music is Fort Worth based singer/songwriter, Abraham Alexander, with his brilliant debut single, America.

A pertinent and powerful protest song that flaunts it’s gospel roots proudly, America was written in response to the murder of five police officers in Dallas in 2016. The frustration and passion in Abraham’s voice is clear from the very first note he sings, which, when combined with the lyrics of the song, makes America one of the most impactful records we’ve heard in a long time.

Whilst we’ll make no predictions about how the issues the US is faced with will be overcome, one thing we will speculate is that Abraham Alexander is a name you’ll be hearing a lot more from in the future. Listen to America in full below.
