UPDATE: 'Golden Voice' Ted Williams - Once Homeless Now Giving Back

Most Popular - General

Golden voiced Ted Williams-NBCvidDo you remember the story two years ago about the homeless man with the golden voice who was discovered pan-handling for change on a cold Ohio street?

It turns out, he didn't fall back into old habits and end up on the street again as some had worried. Williams now works and helps the homeless and drug-addicted whenever he can.

He maintains an apartment and continues recording voice-overs for Kraft Mac and Cheese commercials.

Last May, Williams claimed to be one-year-sober and walked his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. At 54, he cowrote a book released last year with Brett Witter entitled, A Golden Voice.

The book details how he went from being a popular Ohio DJ to a homeless crack addict to a YouTube sensation after 17 hard years on the streets.

“All through that journey, I never stopped praying,’’ said Williams, who says a relationship with God is one of his top priorities.
