Former manager of the chart-topping R&B group Destiny’s Child and father to one of music’s most glamorous divas, Mathew Knowles is no newbie when it comes to the music business as he has been deeply rooted in it. Now he has taken on a new project with another all-girl group from the United Kingdom.
The group, “From Above”, consists of five girls (Ashley, Daisy, Seyi (Shay), Chelsey and Monique), whom all are in their early 20’s. Aside from the singing aspect, the girls came to the table with some experience already under their belts like songwriting and dancing, with one of them securing a spot as a dancer on the Kanye West tour.
With this new group of ladies that he is managing, Knowles plans to take their talents beyond studio walls.
The girls will be starring in the show “Breaking From Above”, a reality TV show that highlights the group’s journey to stardom and the ups and downs that they face living and working together as a musical unit. The group will also be undergoing a singer’s boot camp where they will get the chance to work with notable choreographers, some of who worked with other talents like Janet Jackson and Omarion.
The show has been aired overseas already. And it has been said to be seeing much success which is why Knowles decided to see how it would fair when brought back to the United States.
The show is set to air on Teen Nick next Monday.
Destiny’s Child held it down as far as female groups were concerned during their time. And the group put Mathew Knowles on the map management wise.
Not so sure what this “From Above” group will do for him though over here in the states.
