When it looks like everything is against you. God hears your prayers....... keep your faith!!
Ted Williams is definitely proof of that.
A YouTube video of Ted Williams, a homeless man with a golden radio voice has gone viral over three days making him a hit on YouTube with over 2 million views in 24 hours. On Monday, Williams was homeless, begging for change and living in a makeshift tent on the streets of Columbus, Ohio. By Thursday, he was a guest on NBC's Today Show. Williams has been offered a job with the Cleveland Cavaliers, NFL Films has offered to hire him for voiceover work and Williams has accepted a deal with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Ted Williams now has a agent to manage all the job offers and media requests pouring in.
The video that started it all was filmed by the Columbus Dispatch videographer Doral Chenoweth III next to a freeway as Williams panhandled for money with a hand-written sign that read: "I have a God given talent of voice, I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times, Please! Any help will be gratefully appreciated. Thank you and God bless you"
Ted Williams fell on hard times and began using drugs, he served several prison terms for theft and forgery. But he says he's been clean and sober for more than two years. During an interview with CBS Wednesday, Williams said he's being compared to singing discovery Susan Boyle.
This is a great story to start the new year and a reminder of how amazing God is. Ted Williams story is so uplifting and inspiring for all of us, Never give up on your dreams!
