VIDEO PHOTO “Golden-voiced” homeless dude Ted Williams gets multiple job offers Jan – 05

Ted Williams, the homeless guy from Columbus, Ohio with a golden voice got his life changed by the internet!

A dude with a camera asked him to make good on displaying the “God Given GIft” advertised on his begging sign, and Mr. Williams, a former radio announcer whose life went sour when he turned to alcohol and drug, delivered.
The video was put on the internet, and the whole world got to listen to Ted’s talent. Within a day the viral video has been seen over 3 million times, and Ted has gotten offers from scores of companies eager to give him a second chance including MTV and the NFL.

Da Bus is one of the few places where the old and the new, the poor and the middle classes come into contact.
