Remember the homless man with a golden voice? Well, it came to pass that he suddenly turned from rags to riches and now he's a national celebrity in the States with tons of job offers. Here he is, Ted Williams, on one of the most popular TV programmes in the States, Today Show, telling us all about it.

He also mentions he hasn't seen his mum for a long time. Actually, he had not seen her for 20 years. He was always hoping one day he would get a normal life again and he would be able to go back to his mother just like the Prodigal Son before she died. She is now 92 years old and it looks like he could make it right on time. You can see a video of their meeting here (family reunion). Sorry about the media circus anyway.
