VIDEO VIRUS: Homeless Man with Golden Voice, Ted Williams, Gets Second Chance

Ted Williams, the homeless man dubbed “the golden voice” is burning up the internet in a clip that shows him panhandling on an Ohio roadside.

Originally from Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, NY, Williams talks about how alcohol and drugs led to his unfortunate situation and professes to being sober for two years.

Local newspaper the Columbus Dispatch posted the video clip on their site on Monday and by Wednesday morning Williams was making the rounds on national news programs. He first sat down with CBS Early Show and tearfully talked about looking forward to reuniting with his 92-year-old mother in Brooklyn.

The golden piped panhandler talks about finding God, appreciating this second chance at life and just wanting a job, a home, and opportunity to get his life back to a “responsible area of a 53-year-old man, a tax paying citizen…”

Blindie loves this overnight internet sensation much more than Antoine Dodson!
