The power of YouTube once again has proven its worth, as 4.5 million YouTube hits in four days, have changed a homeless man’s life forever.
53 year old Ted Williams, a man who was born with a powerful voice, which he then transformed into a sensational radio voice, has been given a second chance like no other.
Williams used his talents to break into the radio industry and made a decent career for himself, before bad company, alcohol, and drugs turned his life upside down.
He lost his wife, his children, and his home – everything he had worked for, swapping it for a life on the streets begging for money to fuel his addiction.
But now thanks to an apparent two years of no drugs or alcohol, and the clever eye of a reporter for a good story, Williams has been transformed into a mass media sensation.
William was spotted by a reporter at a road junction in Columbus in Ohio, sporting a sign stating he was a radio broadcaster who had fallen on bad times.
The reporter asked Williams to ‘work for his dollar’, who then went on to give voiceover lines for his possibly imaginary ‘Magic 98.9FM’, and as they say; the rest is history.
Williams has already been dubbed, ‘The man with the Golden Voice’, and he is well aware of his talents.
“I have a God given gift of voice. I am an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be gratefully appreciated,”
These are the exact words of Williams’ begging placard that caught the attention of the reporter who has so far; been offered work by the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, Ohio Credit Union League, and also being pursued by NFL films amongst others for possible work.
