Born in New York City, Ted Williams has served the United States Army for three years before he attended voice acting classes. However, he soon found himself addicted to alcohol and drugs, which resulted to him becoming homeless and a criminal.
In a sudden twist of fate, his life changed. While holding up a sign begging for donations in exchange for voice-overs, Doral Chenoweth, a videographer of Columbus Dispatch noticed him.
Doral documented Ted’s speaking, and eventually, he became known as the man with the “golden voice”.
Despite all the great things he enjoyed, there was still something missing in his life – his mother. Ted had not seen his mother in two decades. When he started to live a chaotic life, they lost contact with each other. Luckily, they now have each other back.
Watch the video to see the moment he and his mom reunite after two decades.
