How faith helped uncover a 'golden voice'

By now, millions of Americans have heard from Ted Williams.  He's "the homeless man with the golden voice," a panhandler whose stunning vocal skills were recorded for an impromptu video that's netted at least 4 million views on YouTube.

But what about the good Samaritan with the video camera?  What made him stop for Williams on a dreary, overcast day when scores of people ignored the African-American homeless man during the peak of the Christmas season? It turns out that Doral Chenoweth III, the man who filmed Williams, has a story of his own. Click "Here" to read the full story.

This is really an amazing story where God has been working in the life of a homeless man by the name of Ted Williams. Little did Doral Chenoweth III realize that God had set up a divine appointment when he pulled over to chat with Williams alongside a busy public street.

This story has gripped me since it first broke. I live just outside Columbus where this happened and am already familiar with Chenowith. I am so glad you linked to this story about him because it's a great testimony to how God can work miracles through small, seemingly meangingless actions.
