Golden Voice' Homeless Man Turns Up at Occupy Wall Street

"greeted like a rock star."

Occupy Wall Street has seen a steady stream of famous and otherwise notable people pass through New York City's Zuccotti Park. The latest one to turn up? Ted Williams, perhaps better known as the homeless man with the "golden voice."

Williams skyrocketed into the national spotlight in January, becoming a YouTube sensation after a reporter with the Columbus Dispatch noticed him on the side of a highway with a sign advertising his "God-given gift." From there, it was job offers, a stint on NBC's "Today" and reports of a reality show, as well as run-ins with the police and rehab.

GBTV producer Nick Rizzuto spotted Williams in Zucotti Park Friday, where he said Williams was "greeted like a rock star" by people in the camp.

"He was shaking hands and taking photographs with both passersby and occupiers. He was telling everyone he stood in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street," Rizzuto observed.
