An Internet video of a homeless man showing off his self-described “God-given gift of a great voice” has landed him a spot on a local radio show, a dream job with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a house. “The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!” Ted Williams said while appearing on a morning radio show in Columbus, Ohio, called “ Dave and Jimmy.”

Williams was flying to New York Wednesday night for a reunion with his 92-year-old mother, who lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and an appearance on the “TODAY Show,” NBC confirmed. Earlier, the website TMZ reported that airport officials would not let him board a plane because he didn’t have proper ID.

Williams was hooked. He said it took years to develop his voice, and he also went to school for training.

“Alcohol and drugs — and a few other things — became my life,” Williams admitted, but added that he has “been two years clean.”

  2. This is truly a very touching story, my heart goes out to Ted Williams. He has an amazing voice. I have read several posts out there and it baffles me to see that we have so many haters in this world. I myself was homeless many years ago, for the same reasons as he, but by the grace of GOD I am where I am today. May GOD Bless this man and keep him on the right path. To all you haters shame on you and I pray you don’t ever find yourself in a similar situation!

  3. i think its great and he deserves something good happening to him considering he is living on the streets!

  4. yeah, its weird…..his voice doesnt seem to match his face, if u know what i mean…it seems like he should have a much deeper voice with more of an accent….kinda sounds like a white guy…..but he does have a nice voice for doing tv/radio…

  5. I don’t know if I love him, but I am glad that his life has turned around. He does have a cool voice and it would be nice if he was in a few things, did some voice overs.
