Breaking From Above
Tune-in @ 6pm Sundays, only on MTV!
Hot all-girl act From Above are five thrill-seekers from the UK, strapped in for the ride of their lives. Ashley, Daisy, Seyi, Chelsey and Monique are all in their early twenties, and have had various roles in the entertainment business to date, from singer/songwriter to featured dancer on the Kanye West tour, lead vocalist in a UK girlband to dancer on a UK dance reality show - basically, they know their ish. Now signed to the Music World label, it’s time to take it to the next level!
The girls will be hopping the Pond to Houston, Texas for a much anticipated date with Music World Entertainment president and CEO Mathew Knowles - a man who knows a thing or two about turning girl groups into gold. He’ll put the group through his trademark boot camp of hardcore physical, vocal, media and choreography training to emphasise the philosophy that made global superstars of his protégés Destiny’s Child…work, work and more hard work. But there’s a twist – when the girls get to Houston, they quickly learn that there are two new girls, Jasmine and Brandy, living in the house with them and they are now ALL in competition for a spot in From Above.
The pressure mounts over the course of their artist development camp, as the girls are put through their paces by famed choreographer Danielle Polanco (who has danced with and choreographed Janet Jackson, Omarion, Lady Gaga and of course Beyoncé) and musical director Tom McKinney (Solange Knowles, Mario, Ray J, and Kevin McHale.) And as Mathew himself remains very hands-on, especially when it comes to team-building and trust exercises, the studio beckons as the group start to develop their "sound"…who will make the final cut?
