the eyes have it
However, when you close your eyes too often you are sending another kind of powerful message to your audience, and not a positive one. You’re telling them that you are in your own little world; a world they are not a part of. When you perform you should endeavor to draw the audience into your world so they can experience what you are feeling.
If you want to build a more emotional relationship with your audience, I suggest you choose one person in the audience and sing directly to that one person. You can switch the object of your attention every so often as long as you are really actually engaged in connecting with at least one person.
If you are one of those singers who close your eyes often, try to cut it down to the important times. On the other hand, if you never close your eyes when you perform, try closing your eyes on occasion to add a little more motion.
