    Ted Williams aka "the homeless man with the golden voice"

    I'm sure by now everyone has heard his story, if not - read on.



    From homeless to household name.
    Ted Williams, whose deep, velvety voice and touching story prompted an outpouring of sympathy and job offers from across the country, has become an overnight sensation.
    He's America's hottest — and most improbable — star.
    On Thursday, Williams, who was living in a tent near a highway in Columbus, Ohio, just days ago, will be in New York for an emotional reunion with his 90-year-old mother and to appear on NBC's "Today" show — one of many interview requests to come his way in the past two days.
    "I can't believe what's going on," Williams said Wednesday in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "God gave me a million-dollar voice, and I just hope I can do right by him."
    Left homeless after his life and radio career were ruined by drugs and alcohol, Williams has been offered a job by the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, and the 53-year-old is being pursued by NFL Films and others for possible work. Williams and his compelling tale became an online sensation after The Columbus Dispatch posted a clip of him demonstrating his voiceover skills while begging by the side of the road.
    Now, he's in demand.

    And today he got to see his 90-year-old Mother:




    PRAISE THE INTERNET! I really hope things work out well for him, he seems like such a genuine, deserving guy.

    I thought he was gonna sing! But he's got that perfect voice that's always weird to hear when it's not on the TV or radio I hope he does well!

    I'm not real big on his success. I feel like Matt and Merideth-it's all too fast. However, I find his reuniting with his mom very sweet!

    How can you not be real big on his success? Making a good thing out of a bad situation, as long as he stays on the right path, is exactly what he needs. I can only wish him good things.


    His first commercial!

    I just am like Matt and Merideth....hopefully he doesn't ruin it like he has in the past. It's like the, "You've been lied to so many times, how do you know when to trust?" thing.

    Cute commercial!!
