How’s your new year going so far? Have you made any changes in your life?
What a week it’s been for Ted Williams of Columbus, OH. By now you’ve probably the heard story of the homeless DJ with a gift…an amazing voice. A friend uploaded a video of Ted to YouTube. Tuesday morning about 300 people had viewed the clip. As of last night the video had exploded to over 6 million views.
And the story doesn’t end there. After appearing on Columbus radio station WNCI yesterday morning, he’s been receiving offers from all around the country. MTV wanted to fly him out to LA to be a guest announcer. ESPN called followed by Inside Edition and the network news shows. The Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA came through with a full-time job and even offered to finance a home for him.
Ted admits to making mistakes in his life. He battled drug & alcohol problems but claims to be clean the past 2 years.
We all make mistakes but that doesn’t mean we don’t deserve a second chance.
Here’s to Ted, “the Susan Boyle of DJ’s” and anyone else who may have stumbled in life. Pick yourself up. Don’t give up. Opportunity could be as close as a YouTube video away!
“Believe and you’re halfway there.”
