His voice will make you sit up and listen. The homeless man with the rich baritone voice, Ted Williams, is an online video sensation with more than 4 million views. And, his fame may have landed him a job.

Williams was spotted by The Columbas Dispatch, Ohio’s top news source for local news, standing at an exit ramp off Interstate 71. He was holding a cardboard sign asking motorists for help. “I’m an ex radio announcer who has fallen on hard times.”

He explained that he went to school for his voice, but his life was later affected by alcohol and drugs. He has been sober for two years.

Reports state that the Cleveland Cavaliers, a pro basketball team, have offered Williams a job and a house. Other offers could soon be rolling in.
