Yes, the age old argument. I’ve never been too fussed either way whether a worship leader keeps their eyes open or closed. A bit of both works for me usually.
However last night I watched a video that made me think that the eyes OOpen thing can get a little weird. Now, I like Chris as much as the next worship leader, but now I have his wee face burned into the back of my retinas after watching this. In-flip-in-tense.
