In 2011, a video of Ted Williams, a 53 year-old homeless man with an amazing radio voice captured the world’s attention, leading to a number of job and housing offers, including one with Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Since that time, Williams has relapsed with drugs and alcohol twice, but in an interview with the OWN network, Williams shared his positive attitude towards the future and giving back to the Columbus, Ohio community from where he came.
Ted Williams was on track to having a career in radio. His voice was perfect for the medium. Tragically, drugs and alcohol interfered, and before Ted had a chance to get his life off the ground, he was living on the streets.
