If you haven't seen this video of Ted Williams, the homeless man with a golden radio voice, stop what you're doing, throw on your headphones and prepare to be amazed.

Williams was interviewed by The Columbus Dispatch and after the video was uploaded to YouTube, it became a viral sensation, garnering more than 4 million views.

Job offers have been coming in. One in particular has Williams beside himself with joy. Reported by the Associated Press, the Cleveland Cavaliers have proposed showcasing his unmistakable radio voice.

The man with the miracle mouth appeared clean-shaven and beaming on CBS's Early Show Wednesday morning, where he teared up while speaking of his 92-year-old mother. Mother and son have not seen one another in many years, but Williams hopes he'll head to New York soon for a reunion.

Here's the Early Show interview:
