"Dancing In Heaven" is a powerful and emotionally charged song that delves into the theme of loss and coping with the departure of loved ones. Ricki Ayela, drawing from personal experiences, reveals that the song was inspired by the profound grief she experienced after losing her mother in May of last year and her best friend six months later. The poignant lyrics and evocative melody encapsulate the raw emotions of mourning while celebrating the lives of those departed.

In a heartfelt statement, Ricki Ayela shared, "I wrote this song about losing two people I really loved dearly and having to cope with their loss. My mom passed away in May of last year, and my best friend fell down behind me six months later and had a heart attack, slipped into a coma and two weeks later passed away. I shared this song with Mark Battles, who also lost his brother when he was only 15, relating to the song and loving the message. He wanted to jump on the track as well! I just hope this song will reach the people who need it most."
