Ted Williams: Homeless no more

It seems like only yesterday that Ted Williams -- the homeless Cleveland man with an amazing voice -- was holding a sign on the side of the road asking for dollars.

Oh wait, it seems like yesterday because it was just yesterday.

A reporter with the Cleveland Dispatch interviewed the man with the golden baritone voice about his drug and alcohol-filled past and his aspirations for a voiceover career. The video went viral within hours and Williams is now getting his wish.

Ted Williams: Radio, NFL Films to come

The Brooklyn, New York-born Williams studied radio before falling on hard times. Now, a $15,000 donation and a temporary gig at a Cleveland radio station have come his way.

But that's not all.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly offered him a job, presumably for voiceover work, and the team at NFL Films has contacted him about voicing for them.

In the video, Williams says that he hopes someone at a Cleveland radio or TV station will hear his voice and offer him a job. It now looks like he's going to get a lot more than that and he'll be able to kiss his life on the highway goodbye.

The American Dream is alive and well.
