Cleveland Cavaliers hire homeless man with “Golden Radio Voice”
While the Cavaliers are struggling on the court this season without their former sports superstar, the organization is still making waves in the community. In perhaps one of the most amazing stories I’ve ever seen.
Ted Williams, who was previously homeless held up a sign every day telling the world about his “Golden Radio Voice”. Someone pulled off to the side of the road to speak with him and videotaped the man, and he wasn’t lying. This guy has an incredible voice!
Apparently, the Cleveland Cavaliers took notice after the Columbus Dispatch featured the man in the paper they and offered him a job and a house. Williams was on a local radio station, WNCI exclaiming “The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!”
He also added “I’ve been out there about a year; I just didn’t know anything like this would ever happen. There’s so many words. I’ve already been compared to Susan Boyle. I’m just so happy.”
It’s unclear what position the Cavaliers have offered Williams, but it is an incredible story of redemption after Williams threw his career away years ago admittedly due to drugs and alcohol.
“Just to get back to some normalcy and responsibility.. If I can get a job, whether it’s a $25,000 or even $18,000, I’d be happy. At least I know God has me where he wants me.”
Here is the video… it’s pretty incredible how this all went down.
