One of our favorite TV families, The Cast Of Welcome To Sweetie Pies has a sweet treat for all of their fans. During Season 2, Tim revealed his aspirations to become a musician. He wanted to follow in his mom’s footsteps and go into the entertainment business. Well….now he’s used the success of the show to produce a new ‘Electric Slide,’ for all of the fans of their fans and the beautiful Miss Robbie is making her debut as a solo artist! Tim not only produced the song, but he also, directed the video. Love his ambition 🙂 The video doesn’t completely show us how to do the ‘Sweetie Pie,’ so, my only suggestion would be for Tim to do a remix, rap on the song and explain exactly how to do the dance (Kind of like the Cha Cha Slide). Either way, we love everything this family does!
Miss Robbie Montgomery, the feisty star of the hit OWN docu-series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” has released a new original song and accompanying music video “Do the Sweetie Pie,” available today on www.oprah.com/SweetiePiesMusicVideo.
Written by Miss Robbie’s son Tim Norman, “Do the Sweetie Pie” is based on a “slide dance” performed by the 73 year-old restaurant owner who spends many weekends out dancing with her friends. The song debuted on “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” yesterday.
It was my first time recording in Lord knows how many years,” remarked Miss Robbie, a 1960s backup singer and former Ikette. “After my lung collapsed, doctors told me I’d never be able to record again, but you never know what God has in store for you and you’re never too old to try. When my son Tim wrote the song for me I thought it would be a fun thing to do together-don’t just chase your dreams, catch them.”
“It started out as a birthday gift for my mother,” says Tim of the project’s origins. “Even though she sang for years, she didn’t have a song of her own and I wanted to do something special for her that we could create together-something she would really remember.”
Both hope the “Sweetie Pie” will eventually join the ranks of other classic slide dance traditions such as the Electric Slide, the Wobble and the Cupid Shuffle.
In addition to co-producing “Do the Sweetie Pie” with St. Louis production duo Da Beatstaz, Tim also co-directed the music video, which will be featured on the October 5 “behind the scenes” episode of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” airing Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
