Blossoming author and aspiring rapper (oh, and worldwide pop phenomenon) is readying the release of his contribution to Black Friday, his new album My Worlds Acoustic (out November 26). Although the 10-track LP is mostly made up of acoustic tracks from Justin’s My World and My World 2.0, we get a brand new, inspirational tune, “Pray”. Hey, this is a holiday release after all, and what are the holidays for than a perfect time to record a moving, poignant ballad about how there’s suffering in the world? Prepare for your heartstrings to be tugged by listening to “Pray” below.

Justin Bieber — “Pray”

“I just can’t sleep tonight, knowing that things ain’t right,” sings a heartfelt Bieber on the inspirational track. “It’s in the papers, it’s on the TV, it’s everywhere that I go / Children are crying, soldiers are dying, some people don’t have a home.”

Doesn’t that just bring a salty tear to your ducts, folks? And is it just us, or is our lil Bieb’s voice is getting deeper? By this time next week he should sound like Rick Ross.

Justin Bieber tells MTV that he made an acoustic album to prove to all his haters that he can really sing.”Kind of stripping [my songs] down and having it kind of really mellow and being able to hear my voice is why I wanted to do it.”
