A man who once dreamed of going into radio let drugs and alcohol alter the course of his life. Now, he’s clean, but homeless, and looking for a job in Columbus Ohio:
One of the videos on YouTube has more than 4,000,000 views, and updates are showing that job offers are pouring in.
MyFox dfw reports:
A homeless man with a polished broadcasting voice was showcasing his unexpected talent on a radio station in Columbus, Ohio, Wednesday morning — with a possible job offer as a result.
Ted Williams, 71 (I’m questioning that!) — who begs with a sign saying he has a God-given gift of a great voice — became an internet hit after a reporter from the Columbus Dispatch filmed him demonstrating his skill.
Media outlets have already begun expressing an interest in Williams’ offer, including WNCI’s morning radio show Dave and Jimmy, who organized a Wednesday morning interview slot for the burgeoning internet star.
Announcing the interview on their Facebook page, Dave and Jimmy wrote, “The homeless man with the awesome voice will be in our studio at 7:15am tomorrow [Wednesday]. We’re going to find some way to help this guy!”
According to Dave and Jimmy’s latest FB post, the interview went well:
I’m very happy for Williams – I think he’s going to be set for life.
After all, everyone deserves a second chance.
