Las Vegas singer and entertainer Tommy Ward, managed by Grammy winning producer Quincy Jones, will host a special benefit show for the family of a local man who has been affected by cancer. Proceeds from the one-night-only show will support William Thompson’s battle with lymphoma by offsetting his family’s medical expenses. Ward graduated from Faith Lutheran High School, where Thompson’s son is a current student.
At just 19 years old, singer/songwriter Tommy Ward is making his mark as a critically acclaimed entertainer with a take on modern music that is rooted in his love and appreciation of great musicians.
