Singer, songwriter, and producer, Christon Gray, sat down at the piano and poured his heart out to God, allowing for this beautiful song of worship to be born. The emotional range is built up by Christon’s impressive musical range, putting his powerful voice on full display with “Closer (Restore My Sight).” Even with all the injustice in the world, Christon is using this song to urge himself and others to find faith in people through God, or as the lyrics say, “I want to see You in their faces, as I see You in mine.” This intimate moment captured on “Closer (Restore My Sight)” will be one of many singles featured on Christon Gray’s fifth full-length album, School of Roses 2, coming out in the fall of 2020.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Christon Gray has become one of hip-hop’s pre-eminent artists. His two releases–School of Roses (2014) and The Glory Album (2016)–both were on the Top 5 Billboard R&B Albums Chart and Top 15 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. “’Stop Me”, a single off of The Glory Album, was a crossover hit and was used as a trailer theme song for Dwayne Johnson’s blockbuster Rampage, the theme song for Madden ’19, featured on HBO’s Ballers, ABC’s For Life, and FOX’s Lethal Weapon. In addition, the track was used for campaigns for Honda, ESPN, and The ESPY Awards.
