Viral video saved the radio star

A homeless man who lives on the streets of Cleveland, USA, has shot to fame, after a clip of his marvelous radio voice went viral on the internet.

Ted Williams, was filmed by a local cameraman holding a cardboard sign that read: “I’m an ex-radio announcer who fell on hard times”. Now that the video has millions of hits on YouTube, Williams, becomes an overnight sensation.

He spent the day appearing on talk shows across America, sporting a new haircut and a smarter appearance than on the clip that made him famous.

Since this story is widely known, he received numerous job offers from big broadcasting names including ESPN, MTV, ABC, CBS and CNN and The Cleveland Cavaliers.

The story of the “homeless man with the golden pipes”  lifted the spirits of a recession-hit nation. However, the instant hero attracted so much attention that reporters started digging into his background and they discovered that Williams struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for years.

Accusations also said that Williams acted as a pimp during his years on the streets. In response, Williams said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover – everyone has their own little story. I’m just so thankful. God blessed me deeply. I’m getting a second chance. Amazing!”


PAST SIMPLE VS PRESENT PERFECT


REPASO :

El  present perfect siempre nos dice algo sobre lo que sucedio en el pasado y continua sucediendo en el momento.
Por ejemplo: ‘Tom has lost his key’ = TOm ha perdido su llave , lo que quiere decir que todavia no la ha encontrado .
El  past simple nos dice con exactitud lo que paso en el pasado y CUANDO.
Si alguien nos dice : ‘Tom lost his key yesterday ‘= Tom perdio su llave ayer, Entonces podemos decir que el perdió la llave y que ya la encontro y no la esta buscando mas.
