London, Ontario, Canada, 2011/01/05 - Ted Williams, the man with the golden radio voice, has been offered a one year Premium membership by Voices.com to help him get his voice over career off the ground.
After hearing about the incredible story of the homeless man with the golden voice, Voices.com is extending an offer to Ted Williams to help him get his voice over career off the ground.
“We would like to extend an offer to Mr. Williams for a free Premium membership at Voices.com, which will allow him to audition for voice work posted at the site by casting directors, creative producers and businesses.” Voices.com co-founder and CEO, David Ciccarelli, indicates “Ted is a true talent and Voices.com would be delighted to welcome him into our voice over marketplace.”
Ted Williams was discovered by Columbus Dispatch photographer, Doral Chenoweth, who produces videos for the paper's website. He discovered Williams holding his sign last month that indicated he had the “God Given Gift of Voice.” Chenoweth stopped to talk to Williams and video-taped their discussion and later uploaded it to YouTube.
The video went viral and Williams became an overnight celebrity appearing on the morning shows and in newspapers across the Nation and has received hundreds of job offers.
A humble man, Williams sets his expectations low, "Just to get back to some normalcy and responsibility -- If I can (get) a job, whether it's a twenty-five or even $18,000, I'd be happy," says Williams. "At least I know God has me where he wants me."
Voices.com is requesting that anyone who can direct Williams to Voices.com to accept their Premium membership offer contact us.
