Millions of people have heard about a homeless man with a golden voice named Ted Williams whose talent was recently discovered by a reporter from The Columbus Dispatch alongside the Hudson/I-71.
While Ted has captured media attention for his vocal gifts and current circumstances, it is clear that he has captured the hearts of many people who want to see him shine.
Learn more about how this story has unfolded in today's VOX Daily.
Ted Williams has a beautiful voice and a faith that can move mountains. The video may span less than two minutes in length, however, his message and character engages us far beyond the duration of the film on YouTube.
The last few days have been life changing no doubt considering the attention received via social networks, major news outlets and recent radio interviews. Ted will be making appearances on television programs shortly and the outlook for his career is bright with job offers and the like.
Something that strikes me is how he has placed his hope in God. When everything else in his life had crumbled around him, he was able to draw upon strength and could walk with his head up high and live with dignity. Who you see before you is not only a beautiful voice artist but a truly beautiful person.
See how a life can be transformed and given a fresh start?
We wish Ted all the best, and as a company, have extended a helping hand to aid him in his journey. What a privilege it is to be of service and in a position to help.
I wanted to also acknowledge the voice over community and those in different industries who have found a means to spread the word and give back. Thank you to everyone who has in some capacity shared Ted's story, giving others hope and something miraculous to cheer about.
Let Ted's story be a reminder to us that there are people out there like Ted who are just steps away from reaching their potential. They just don't receive the kind of attention or have the connections he was blessed to come into contact with the day someone stopped to read his sign and decided to do something about it.
Choosing to become aware and to encourage are both steps in the right direction. By seeking these kinds of opportunity, you might just help to change a person's life.
