Hey, Branson.....when I click on the link, it get a window that says "Your page cannot be found." Can you re-post?

Edit: I just searched this, and here's one of the many links I found: Homeless Man's Golden Radio Voice Makes Him Web Star | NBC New York Funny, but while I was typing this, a news trailer came on the TV about this very same story. I guess after the next commercial I'll get to see the news report. This man's voice is amazing! Good for him, for rising above his problems and getting a new lease on life!

I heard about this the other day. He has such a distinctive voice. Best of luck to Ted Williams, he deserves the success and attention he's receiving.

Here's the video:

I saw this a couple of days ago. I'm so glad to hear he got gainful employment. He DID have a great radio voice.

When I saw the TV news story about him last night, he was all cleaned up, hair cut - looked really handsome! A happy story, indeed.

He would be great in voice over TV and radio commercials, too.

Good luck, Ted.

ETA: Just watched the "cleaned up Ted" video. His resemblance to Obama is startling.

It's a new twist on the Susan Boyle story.

For a person, who had a problem with alcohol, and ended up losing everything and on the street, it's good to see him bouncing back and getting a second chance at life, and I hope he does well with that second chance.

It's also good to see that he gives recognition to God for giving him the good voice.

I saw them interviewing him on Good Morning America this morning as I was channel surfing. This is a great story! I love it when people get a second chance, and a third, and a fourth. Good for you Ted!
