...because this guy's story will make you cry!

His name is Ted Williams and he has been panhandling in Columbus, Ohio with a sign saying that he has a "Golden Radio Voice."

Click here to view his interview on CBS.

Excuse me.. there's something in my eye.

This guy is a sensation on Jan 06, 2011 @ 10:02 am

He is literally all over the place, in the past day I've seen him on TV, right here in the forums, heard him on the radio, and read about him in the newspaper this morning. It's nuts!

It's such a nice story though. And he does have an awesome radio voice!

Apparently Mr Williams now has a flood of job offers and has reunited with his mother who he hasn't seen in 20 years since his spiral into drug and alcohol addiction.

What a wonderful story! I hope he stays clean and has a bright future.

rags to riches on Jan 10, 2011 @ 11:53 am

This is the ultimate rags-to-riches story! It's so nice hearing such a heart-warming story like this one!

One has to wonder about this new lifestyle that he is jumping towards... Will reaching super-star status over-night bring him into similar addiction problems? I really hope not, as he seems to be a lovely person!

maturity on Jan 10, 2011 @ 12:24 pm

I'd like to think, 20 years later, he has maturity and life experience behind him such that he would not slip into drugs, alcohol, or other vices again. A 33 year old man is quite a bit different from a 53 year old man. I am sure Ted Williams has learned A LOT about the world, himself, and people around him.
