Noted Composer for Film and TV Breaks Cycle of Domestic Abuse -- Becomes Advocate
Television, film composer and music producer BREAKS cycle of Domestic Abuse and becomes ADVOCATE -- Sharing his story with young black males on national stage
WYNDMOOR, Penn., Sept. 18, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dunn Pearson, Jr., noted for his celebrity as a prolific pianist/composer and record producer/arranger having scored for some of the biggest names in Entertainment and film, such as "New York Undercover" theme song, "Native Son" the movie featuring Oprah Winfrey, Superbowl Commercials for Wendy's and McDonald's, former music director for the Multi-Award winning "OJays," "Mary J. Blige," "D'Angelo," "Stephanie Mills," and "TONY" winner "Melba Moore" to name a few, spent his formative years in a domestic violent household where both he and his mother were abused by his stepfather, yet, he learned effective tools to destroy the cycle that is so often perpetuated by abusers and abuse-victims.
Dunn, through education and love of the arts found a discipline that created an escape from an abusive-stepfather and upon becoming a father, decided to make better choices for his family and is scheduling a national speaking tour in 2015 to help males develop coping strategies that will enrich their lives, first starting with communication.
Dunn frequently talks about "So often celebrities are viewed as individuals with everything in tact because of fame and money when in essence we are still wrestling with demons just like everyone else, and have to be reminded that we have power to choose our actions. And my primary focus for stepping onto this stage is to help young males see their environment is not a death sentence but the beginning sentence to a paragraph of life they get to write; to achieve a better life you have to get better at living."
Although he is very involved in entertainment, Dunn realized his life is a success story and has chosen to be an ADVOCATE to help destroy the cycle of abusive behavior patterns in males that stem from learnt behavior through strategies he used to conquer the darkest periods of his life as a teenager.
Pearson is slated to release his long-awaited movie based on adaptation of his life story "UNHINGED" which depicts a candid visual of living in a violent riddled household this winter of 2014. As a first-time author, Dunn Pearson is publishing two new books with Hollis Media Group "MASCULINE VULNERABILITY" & "SOMETHING ABOUT THE HOUR."
