Sometimes I really love the internet. As some of you may already know, a local reporter filmed homeless man, Ted Williams when they found him on a street corner of Columbus Ohio holding a sign that said “I have a God given gift of voice, I’m an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times…” The reporter told him he needed to work for his dollar and boy did he ever. Showing off his ‘golden voice’, the reporters filmed him and since then the video has gone viral online and has received over 5 million views (and rising) on YouTube alone.
Ted has since appeared on The Today Show, made a cameo on the Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon and done his first post-discover commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Additionally he’s received several job offers including one from the Cleavland Cavaliers who have even offered to throw in a house.
