Meet Ted Williams, ex radio announcer, ex alcoholic, ex drug addict, ex inmate, and soon to be millionaire. For those who don’t know the story of the man blessed with a million dollar voice, allow us to do the honors. Ted Williams is a homeless man who typically dwells around interstate 71 in hopes of finding help. A type of help you give an individual going on two years since detox for alcohol & drugs.
While life may bring numerous mysteries, its said that as long as we believe in god we’re in good hands. God is definitely at work as Ted Williams is currently being sought to work for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Quicken loans arena. The organization is also offering to pay for his living expenses to accompany a two-year contract. On the contrary, NFL Films is also pursuing Ted to be the voice of many documentaries to come.
As if this feel good story isn’t enough, Williams is currently planning to see his 90-year-old mother who resides in Brooklyn, NY. When speaking about his mother, Williams gave this statement: “She has always been my best friend. When I was a kid, she would take me down to Radio City Music Hall and on the subway. I’m just glad that she is still around. I prayed that she would live long enough that I could make her proud and see could her son do something other than stand along the side of the road with a sign asking for money.” Williams has also stated that his mother is the only person who stood by him during his drug addiction. NBC’s Today show has Williams scheduled for an appearance tomorrow; which I’m sure will be a must see.
Though we could really use him in Madison Square Garden, I’m proud to see that a man who has once hit rock bottom has been given a second chance by the grace of god to do right by himself and his nine children. God bless Ted Williams and the local Columbus dispatcher who recorded this video.
Its time for us as a nation to increase positivity and stop viewing our fellow counterparts on a higher or lower scale. We were all created equally with individual talents. If this doesn’t inspire you to pay attention next time you see a homeless man or woman giving you their story then I don’t know what will.
God gave me a million-dollar voice and I just hope I can do right by him. – Ted Williams
