Following a long, courageous, and public battle with cancer, MTV star Diem Brown passed away on Nov. 14. Though the inspirational star may be gone, she lives on in the hearts and minds of loved ones including Davis Mallory, who appeared alongside her on The Duel 2.
The singer-songwriter paid tribute to his friend in a touching video, which accompanied his new tune “Beautiful Girls (Diem’s Song).”
“In tribute to Diem Brown, who lost her battle to cancer on Nov 14, I wrote and performed this song ‘Beautiful Girls (Diem’s Song).’ Please share this with others today to spread the memories of Diem and be sure to watch her special ‘We [heart] Diem’ tonight on MTV at 9PM ET!” Mallory wrote on Facebook on Tuesday, Dec. 9.
In the video, the song is set to clips of her dancing, performing, and playfully posing.
Some of the lyrics are: “‘Cause beautiful girls ain’t supposed to die young. They were born to fly, they were meant to run. It’s not the way it’s supposed to be, taking someone like you away from me.”
Mallory took to Facebook to express his sorrow over the loss of his longtime friend, writing, “Her passing really hit me hard (as I am sure it did many of us). I’d like this song to be for Diem what ‘Candle in the Wind’ was for Princess Diana. (Wishful thinking).”
All proceeds of the song go toward Brown’s charity MedGift, which offers support to hospital patients similar to a wedding or baby shower registry.
