You won't believe your ears.
Ted Williams, a former radio announcer who now panhandles on the side of I-71 in Columbus, Ohio, serenaded a Columbus Dispatch reporter recently with his amazing voice.
Carrying a sign that says he has a "god-given gift of a great voice," Williams told the Dispatch:
"I just said, well, hey. I can't be an actor, I can't be an on-air personality, but the voice just became something of a development over the years and I went to school for it. And then alcohol and drugs and a few other things became a part of my life. I've got two years clean, and I'm trying hard to get it back. And hopefully somebody from one of these television or radio stations will say, 'hey, I need a voice-over,' or ' I need something.'"
The "golden-voiced" homeless man became an overnight star on YouTube, with more than 4 million views. His story has already been featured on CNN and according to CBS News, he may have a few job offers coming his way.
Some of his prospects include a full-time job offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, and queries from MTV, ESPN and the NFL, whose director of post-production films, Kevin McLoughlin, told the Columbus Dispatch, "My boss said to me: 'If you don't get him hired, you're fired.'"
Williams appeared Wednesday morning on "The Early Show" on CBS to talk about the overnight success.
