Celebration of Life Event for Holly Dunn Announced

Holly Dunn

Details have been revealed for a celebration of life event honoring late country singer Holly Dunn, set to take place in late March.

Music Row reports that the celebration of life event for Dunn will take place at BMI Nashville’s office, located at 10 Music Sq. E, on March 30 at 6PM. The event will be an evening of live music and will also feature a silent auction; performers will be announced at a later date. Entry into the celebration of life event will require a minimum $25 donation, with proceeds going to ovarian carcinosarcoma research.

Dunn died in November of 2016, following a battle with a rare, very aggressive type of ovarian cancer; she was 59 years old.

Country Stars Who Stand Up to Cancer

Throughout her country music career in the 1980s and ’90s, Dunn released nine studio albums and earned a number of Top 40 country hits, including two No. 1s, “Are You Ever Gonna Love Me” and “You Really Had Me Going.” She retired from country music in 2003 and, prior to her death, said that she was no longer writing music and only occasionally sang at church, preferring instead to focus on her artwork.

Dunn revealed her ovarian cancer diagnosis in the summer of 2015. At the time, she’d undergone surgery and was having chemotherapy treatments, but more tumors had appeared.

“I have a huge faith in the healing power of God and the healing power within me that originates from my God,” Dunn said at the time, adding, “Being a Christian, I know that no matter how this chapter ends, I will be okay. Either upright walking on this earth or safe in my Savior’s arms.”
