The Man with the Golden Radio Voice

A reporter from the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio recently came across a homeless man named Ted Williams with an incredible voice for TV and radio.

The result, which feels like a real life remake of The Soloist, was this video in which Williams demonstrated his vocal skills and described how he fell on hard times.

It has since gone viral on YouTube and been picked up by mainstream media outlets.

A thread on Reddit has the latest details on the story:

So, a homeless guy down on his luck may find redemption thanks to the good will of people on the web.

Someone has got to snap up the rights and make this into a feel-good movie, right?
