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.
