Dunn, who lost his mother before going on the "Back To Love" national tour with ESTELLE and R&B great Anthony Hamilton, is utilizing his premiere event to give back to the community that supported his mother, Janna Dunn, in her battle with a disease that effects 234,580 women (and in rare cases men) annually (according to the American Cancer Society). The "I Am" concert experience provides an opportunity for Dunn and other like-minded artists in Cleveland, to recognize a select breast cancer support organization for their efforts, raise awareness for the cause and offer a financial contribution to the recipient for their work. This year's recipient is the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization Minority Women With Breast Cancer United, which will receive the "Janna Dunn Breast Cancer Awareness Community Leadership Award". Dunn will personally present the award to Director, Geri Blair, for her work with women and families faced with breast cancer in Cleveland. Dunn will host an invite-only, catered, VIP pre-concert event for guests, offering an intimate opportunity to meet with sponsors, members of the media and executive members of Minority Women With Breast Cancer United.
Featured in Black Love Magazine, Singers Room, Grown Folks Music, Soul Train, Cleveland Women's Journal East, Conversations Music Magazine, NYC Parle Magazine, and other industry outlets, including an upcoming August 22nd performance on Cleveland’s FOX8 Jukebox morning show segment, Dunn is gaining exposure and excitement for the debut event and new single among fans. "I want to make this an annual event. It is an opportunity which not only allows me to heal from losing my mother, but allows me to help others heal through the power of music. We are fortunate to have great local support from partners such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation Ohio for our debut event, which I hope will translate into national support from other companies and organizations in the future. I feel very blessed to be able to give back to my hometown and connect to the families affected by this universal disease with an evening of music. Music can soothe the soul-it is a true universal healing tool," says Dunn of the evening event.
Tickets range from $20 to $30 per person with a percentage of each ticket sale benefitting this year's recipient, the Minority Women With Breast Cancer United.
