The story of homeless man Ted Williams and his golden radio voice has inspired many, including a homeless woman in San Diego with an amazing voice of her own.

"It's my passion," said Lotus Sole.
After the Williams story came to light, local homeless advocates introduced 10News to Sole.
Sole said she is drawn to Williams' story.
"I think it's very inspiring, considering I have a dream," Sole told 10News.
Sole's dream took a detour when she said a divorce left her emotionally crippled and unable to hold down a job.
In the past four years, Sole has spent some time in shelters. Mostly, she's slept wherever she could find space -- be it a trolley, benches or pavement. 10News followed Sole to a spot on F Street where she sometimes sleeps.
"I feel bad, like I have been kicked in the stomach. I feel less of a person," said Sole.
Through it all, Sole said her singing gives her comfort. With power and range, she sang two songs for reporter Michael Chen: a gospel song by Jennifer Hudson and "Fairy Tales by Anita Baker.
Sole said had voice lessons as a child and never stopped singing.
Meanwhile, she continues to hone her talent and her passion. Sole said she is hoping to shop several of the songs she's written to record labels.
