"Close Your Eyes" takes you on a personal journey of an empathetic story, with her accompanied music video. Featuring a minimal backdrop, the direction perfectly fits with the dramatic storyline and emotional lyrics. Proving that this single can already be a classic ballad, Roxanna's heartfelt message is strongly emphasized by the elegance of her beautiful vocals. Just from the first few bars of music, you'll be mystified by the music inviting you to continue to listen to this story she is singing to you.
"I believe "Close Your Eyes" can relate to many people who have lost loved ones or losing their hope. When people are listening to the lyrics I'd like them to know they are not alone. I wish to heal them with this song." - RoXanna
