Here is YouTube sensation Ted Williams’ memoir of addiction, homelessness, and unlikely redemption, cowritten by #1 New York Times bestselling author Bret Witter.

Ted Williams was panhandling in December 2010 when a passerby taped him and posted a clip of his gorgeous radio voice on YouTube. The video went viral and, overnight, launched him—the homeless man with a golden voice—into the hearts of millions.

Since then, millions have heard pieces of his story: his successful radio career, his crack addiction, his multiple arrests, and his heartbreaking relationship with his ninety-year-old mother. But in A Golden Voice, Ted Williams finally puts all the pieces together to give an unforgettable, searingly honest account of life on the streets. Nothing is held back, as Williams take listeners through prostitution, theft, crack houses, and homeless shelters in a search, ultimately, for redemption and hope. Along the way we see his relationship with his long-term girlfriend, Kathy, grow into an unlikely and inspiring love story, and we hear the Golden Voice of God lead Ted from the selfishness of crime to the humility of the street corner—almost a year before he was “discovered” on that highway entrance ramp.

But this memoir isn’t just an exploration of wrongs and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to give homelessness a voice. It is a deeply American, from-the-heart comeback story about the power of hope, faith, and personal responsibility. With the innate charisma that has won him millions of fans, Ted Williams proves that no one, no matter how degraded, is too lost for a second chance.

    Booklist

  • In stark, unflinching terms, Williams, with assistance from Witter, tells the story of how he won and lost his own version of the American dream, describing his crippling addiction through often uncomfortably graphic episodes of utter degeneration and despair. Booklist
  • Those who followed last year’s media accounts of his struggles will appreciate the insights and brutal honesty expressed in this powerful career comeback story.”
  • Publishers Weekly
  • “A captivating memoir about a man’s life of drug addiction and homelessness…Religion becomes a main theme toward the end of the book, as the author claims it was God who ultimately led to his freedom and sobriety. The story ends just before his rise to fame and does not explore his life after he became a national sensation. Disturbing and hard to put down.”
