The latest news in the ongoing saga of the homeless man with the golden voice, TED WILLIAMS, involves a book -- co-written with LOUISVILLE author BRET WITTER.
A Golden Voice: How Faith, Hard Work, and Humility Brought Me From the Streets to Salvation is a 256-page memoir that "delves deeply into an addiction that tarnished the shiny pipes of a promising radio star," writes THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH, which describes one story in the book in which WILLIAMS says "he once received a cash gift from his mother to cover the airfare to his father's funeral, only to skip the service and spend the money on crack cocaine. He got high in front of his young daughter after his estranged wife had finally consented to an unsupervised playground visit. Later, broke and starving, he gobbled a son's meager supply of baby food."
The book ends with WILLIAMS discussing how he's kicked his drug habit.
