EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE

Source: Straits Times (7 Jan 2011)
This must surely be one of the most heart-warming stories to start off the new year. God does answer prayers after all.

Last month, vagabond Ted Williams, 53, a former drug addict and alcoholic with a criminal record, was standing by the roadside in Columbus, Ohio, with a sign advertising his God-given voice and begging for help. A local reporter pulled up and asked him to say something so he could record it. The video was later posted on Youtube.



Within three days, the video went viral and to date has been viewed more than 12 million times! Williams, the man with the golden voice, has been inundated with job offers and has appeared on NBC and CBS. And it's only the beginning.

'I can't believe what's going on,' said Mr Williams. 'God gave me a million-dollar voice, and I just hope I can do right by him."

This tent had been Ted's 'home' during the past months.
