Ted Williams – God Given Voice
His name is Ted Williams. He used to be a radio announcer who fell on hard times and also fell into the habit of “alcohol and drugs and a few other things”. He says he has been clean for 2 and a half months now and profusely thanks God that despite his formerly bad habits, still has maintained his incredible voice.
“I have a god given gift of voice. I’m an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be greatfully appreciated. Thank you and God bless. Happy holidays,” reads Williams’ roadside sign for help.
Ted Williams on CBS The Early Show
Here he appeared on the CBS’ “The Early Show”. You can’t help but to feel compassion and be excited for him. He profusely thanks God and really cherishes this second opportunity God has given him. He holds back tears thinking about all that has happened and how he will have a chance to be reunited with his mother back in Brooklyn.
A mere 24 hours after the video went public, Ted Williams have been getting numerous offers and suitors such as the NFL, MTV and the Cleveland Cavaliers. “The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house!”
