Lifetime's "Dance Moms" Features Music By Rachael Sage In Season 4 Premiere

Rachael's music has been featured in Lifetime Network's popular reality show "Dance Moms", in the season premiere which first aired on New Years Day, and will also be featured later in the season. Nominated for multiple Teen Choice Awards, "Dance Moms" follows young dancers' early steps on the road to stardom with their doting mothers in tow for every rehearsal and performance. Season three averaged 2.1 million total viewers and the season premiere delivered 2.8 million total viewers, becoming the series' most-watched telecast ever.

Rachael's songs "Birthday" and "Confession" from her milestone 10th album "Haunted By You", appear in episodes 1 and 8. There are also two other possible placements in season 4 that are awaiting confirmation. Since the show aired on Jan 1, sales of the album and track "Birthday" propelled Rachael into the top 50 of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Songs Chart, peaking at #49. Over a week later the song remains in the top 100.

Read more about Rachael's personal thoughts about having these talented dancers reinterpret her music, and her own history as a ballet dancer, in our official press release.
