“Raising Heaven” follows Tianne as she juggles being a single mother and building a career in the competitive world of dance while managing Heaven’s career. After noticing Heaven’s love for performing, Tianne included her in dance sessions and rehearsal videos that became breakout hits on YouTube. Most notably, Heaven’s dance to Silento’s “Watch Me, (Whip, Nae/Nae)” received over 175 million video views becoming the #1 trending video of 2015. Despite the rapid success and fame, Tianne’s top priority is to ensure Heaven remains a normal six-year-old while enjoying the adventures and opportunities around every corner in New York City.
“Heaven is my number one priority and I can’t wait to show the love and passion we share for family, friends and of course, dance!” said Tianne King. “Most importantly, we want to show that it doesn’t matter how many millions of views or incredible opportunities you have. You can never stop chasing your dreams!”
“Audiences fell in love with Heaven and Tianne through their many breakout dance videos; we are thrilled to be giving fans this exciting original series that invites them into the inspiring and dynamic lives of the King family,” said Amanda Taylor, DanceOn CEO
Mommy & Me Entertainment is the company founded by Tianne King. Heaven and Tianne have created numerous viral dance videos together, amassing hundreds of millions of views across the internet. Their incredible performances have led to numerous appearances on TV, including The Ellen Degeneres Show and attention from major celebrities including Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Ashton Kutcher and more.
