Last June, we wrote about Dred Scott, who was homeless and performing R&B covers on 16th Street Mall, and Tyler Ward helped spread the word about Scott through his featured artist series on YouTube as well as helping getting Scott an EP on iTunes. Scott's cover of Prince's "Purple Rain" has had over 700,000 views since July. Formerly homeless himself, Scott is playing a benefit for Homeless Ministries at 8 p.m. Wednesday, September 27 at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. Tickets are $20.
