    Ted Williams, the previously homeless man from Ohio who many are saying has a golden voice is now the voice of a brand of golden cheese, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

    "As many other Americans, our advertising agency as well as the rest of the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese team were moved by Ted's story.  We thought he had a perfect voice.  We thought it was a perfect fit for our campaign... and thought it was a great opportunity to give him the chance to use his great voice to get employment," Kraft brand manager Noelle O'Mara said Friday from the company's Northfield, Ill., headquarters.

    In a week filled with TV appearances and tearful family reunions, Williams found time to check into a New York recording studio Thursday and cut four commercials for the company.
