Who can forget that voice?

Ted Williams, the viral video star whose "golden voice" propelled him in early 2011 from living on the streets to overnight success, made a surprise stop outside the TODAY plaza this morning, gracing us with his sweet sounds.

"I love the TODAY show," he shouted, waving at our anchors.

"He did a flyby on us," Matt joked. "That was cool."

Editor's note: Ted Williams will be on TODAY May 14 to discuss his new book, "A Golden Voice: How Faith, Hard Work, and Humility Brought Me from the Streets to Salvation."
