    Didn’t think I’d see this here but it certainly is a better after…And a great story. You go Ted! I’m rootin’ for ya. And he really does have quite a voice, doesn’t he?

    YES! I saw this man’s story on Good Morning America and it touched my heart as well. Who doesn’t love a good ‘after’ especially when it’s in the form of a second chance? I almost cried when I read that with all of TV publicity he was most grateful to be able to see him aging mother and for her to see him rebound.

    Touching story…

    I am so happy for this man. I hope he gets the best publicist and makes a fortune with his amazing voice.

    Reminds me there is still some good in the world.

    isn’t this a great story. I saw this yesterday was hoping the best for him. I’m glad that he is getting back on his feet!

    Wow, I was just reading this story and jumped over to my all time favorite blog and here he is again! So happy to hear something good has happened for this man, what an incredible voice!

    I heard this story on the radio this morning, way cool! (If I become homeless, will someone give me a house free and clear? *poke*)

    Thank you for sharing this!!

    My husband works with homeless people from time to time. I think we forget that some of the homeless population are people who either made a bad decision or something bad happened to them and they had no family to borrow money from or to help them get back on their feet afterward.

    This man is a prime example. I’m so glad that he is getting a second chance. And I love that when asked what he would do now he responded that he would like to have a home or apartment, somewhere to cook meals and to be able to be a responsible tax paying citizen. (things that most of us take for granted).

    Thanks again for sharing.

    Such a wonderful story. It’s a fantastic “after” story.

    Your blog is so inspiring and funny. =)

    If becoming homeless [thanks to addictions] was the road to getting a home, I would do without the home, thanks
    This mans road to recovery is going to be as difficult or moreso than that of others… the day the cameras go away… well, I pray he has a good NA/AA program supporting him and I wish him the best.

    I always think the saying “it warmed my heart” is a little cheesy, but when I saw this man on the Today Show this morning that’s exactly how I felt. It’s so nice to see an upbeat story of someone getting a second chance.
