“My game ain’t over,” said Williams in the interview. “Whether I am walking or not walking, my game ain’t over until the Lord takes my life.”

After the interview, Gray said, “It was amazing how someone who suffered such a life-changing event was so positive and so upbeat. This interview convinced me that Paul Williams’ greatness is in his future.”
