Homeless Man With Golden Voice
Magnificent voice! He also seems like a really decent, kind and intelligent person. May 2011 hold much success and happiness for this man.
Earlier this week, a video of a homeless man in Columbus, Ohio, named Ted Williams hit the Internet. Upon first glance, he looks like your average dude holding up a sign at the side of the road -- but anyone who takes a minute to talk to him will realize that he has an out-of-control amazing voice. After seeing the video, Redditors in the Columbus area got to work trying to find ways to help Ted get back on his feet using his amazing talents.
It's amazing, he's gone from I presume nothing to more than many of us could ever imagine in a few days.
One thing that concerns me, however, is that the person responsible (username: ritchey) isn't being praised enough; I've not seen him mentioned in any articles, yet it is thanks to him that Ted's become well known.
Nevertheless, it's a brilliant and positive start to the year, a far cry from the majority of news articles you read about death and depression.
