MIGUEL MARQUEZ, CNN ANCHOR: From CNN world headquarters in Atlanta, this is CNN SUNDAY MORNING.

And then there were two. If you missed it last night, we'll tell you the NCAA's Final Four winners. With some interesting reaction from one of the losing coaches.

And we may now have a date for North Korea's missile test. Why South Korea thinks it could be days away.

And he's a big voice in a pint size package. Seven-year-old preacher Samuel Green explains how he won such a faithful congregation.

Good morning, everyone. I'm Miguel Marquez. It is 8:00. Glad you're spending the morning with us.

We begin with thrillers here in Atlanta. Louisville and Michigan fought hard and it paid off. With a place in the NCAA championship game, our intrepid Carlos Diaz was there and joins us now inside the Georgia Dome.

Carlos, how'd they do it?

CARLOS DIAZ, CNN SPORTS CORRESPONDENT: Well, I'll tell you what, it was an amazing -- it was an amazing night last night here at the Georgia Dome. And it was rocking early on. Start with Wichita State against Louisville. A game that a lot of people had predicted as being the undercard. The (INAUDIBLE), and this was a tough game, it was a tight game throughout.

Wichita State starts on an 8-0 run. It looked like Louisville was kind of exhausted early on. Maybe the emotions from the week with Kevin Ware had been getting to them, but in the end it was Louisville coming out on top. They were down by 12 points at some point. At one point in the second half. But then they finally began hitting free- throws. Their pressure-trapped defense finally began paying off, finally rattled Wichita State and Louisville finally came out on top.

But it wasn't until the final seconds where the Louisville fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief. So Rick Pitino is now in the finals, in the final game, trying to become the first coach ever to win championship with two different teams. Of course he won with Kentucky as well.

Then in the night cap Syracuse taking on Michigan. You had -- all week long we're talking about Trey Burke, the National Player of the Year for Michigan, he has to have a great game. Well, guess what? He goes 1-8 and Michigan wins anyway. Why? Because you have the fresh five, not the fab five, the fresh five. A bunch of youngsters. Michigan being the youngest team in the entire field of 68. The young guys come through. Mitch McGary comes through. He's a big man who wasn't even starting this season. He comes through in a big way. Tim Hardway Jr. leads all scorers and Michigan pulls out a victory against Syracuse's top 2-3 zone defense by attacking the zone.

Crisp passes going right in the zone early and of course they tried to let Syracuse back into it by missing free-throws late in the game, but Syracuse could not pull it out. Michigan holds on. So now we have two storied programs in the final game.

And we're bringing back the big '80s. Michigan last won in '89. Louisville last won in '86. These two programs going head-to-head on Monday night.

Just -- don't ask Jim Boeheim if he's going anywhere.



DIAZ: Miguel, back to you.

MARQUEZ: Yes. Yes. That's really get to that. But, you know, Louisville has been here before. They were in the Final Four last year. Does that help them heading into the finals tomorrow?

DIAZ: Well, you know what's going to help them going in the finals tomorrow is Rick Pitino. I mean, you have two different coaches here. You have John Beilein who's never been to a Final Four before. So it's going to be tough for him to go against Rick Pitino, who, like you said, was in the Final Four last year. They lost to Kentucky. But Rick Pitino definitely has the experience, the advantage over John Beilein, the head coach for Michigan. So that's going to be the big thing as far as the coaches go.

MARQUEZ: All right. Carlos Diaz, one more -- 24 hours, well, about 36 hours, my friend. Hang in there. You'll make it.


DIAZ: Thanks, Miguel.

MARQUEZ: Thanks very much.

So Syracuse, what Carlos was talking, they had a good run but just couldn't close the deal. That may explain why Coach Jim Boeheim was a little irritable at this post game news conference. Here's his reaction when a reporter asked the 68-year-old coach if he was ready to retire. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JIM BOEHEIM, SYRACUSE HEAD COACH: Why ask that question? Are you going to ask John Beilein that question?

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Well, we ask 19-year-old kids the same question and they handle it better than you are.

BOEHEIM: You ask a 19-year-old if he's going to retire? Really?


UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: If they're going to be back next year.

BOEHEIM: If you're going to say something smart at least be smart.


MARQUEZ: Now later Boeheim apologized for his anger and made up with the reporter who asked the question. He also said he has no plans to retire.

Tragedy struck well-known evangelical pastor Rick Warren and his family. Warren's youngest son has committed suicide. Police say the 27-year-old died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy is planned for this week.

Rick Warren is the author of the "Purpose Driven Life" and founded the Saddleback Valley Mega Church in Southern California. In a heartfelt note to church members he said that his son, quote, "No words could express the anguish grief we feel right now. Only those closest knew that he struggled from birth with mental illness, dark holes of depression and even suicidal thoughts. In spite of America's best doctors, meds, counselors and prayers for healing, the torture of mental illness never subsided."

Just about a year ago Matthew Warren's parents spoke with CNN's Jake Tapper when he was still with ABC. Matthew's mother Kay Warren said that her family has been dealing with many challenges. Here it is.


KAY WARREN, MATTHEW WARREN'S MOTHER: Our daughter -- call our daughter in love had a brain tumor three and a half years ago and she nearly died. And was in the hospital for five weeks. Our -- her son, her 7-week-old baby, had been born prematurely and nearly died. We have close family with some mental illness. For us it has been challenging. And it has been difficult.


MARQUEZ: Now the Saddleback Church founded by Matthew Warren's father is asking for prayers for the entire Warren family in the wake of the young man's death. To Afghanistan where six Americans were killed in two separate attacks. Five of them died when their military convoy came under attack. Two of the victims were civilians, one from the State Department, one from the Defense Department. The convoy was delivering books to students in southern Afghanistan when it was hit. Four other State Department workers were injured in the attack. A short time ago Secretary of State John Kerry spoke about the attack and the loss of life.


JOHN KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE: It is a huge challenge for us. It is a -- it is a confrontation with maternity, with possibilities and everything that our country stands for, everything we stand for, is embodied in what Anne Smedinghoff stood for.


MARQUEZ: Now Anne Smedinghoff is the 25-year-old State Department diplomat killed in yesterday's attack. She was assigned to Kerry's detail when he was in Afghanistan a little over a week ago. Kerry said he called Smedinghoff's parents after hearing about her death.

Now there are new developments this morning in the crisis on the Korean Peninsula. South Korea says it believes North Korea could test a missile as soon as this week. The close U.S. ally is not taking any chances. It's on what it calls military readiness posture.

Let's bring in CNN's Jim Clancy in Seoul, South Korea.

Jim, why do South Korea think a missile test could happen within days?

JIM CLANCY, CNN INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Well, they've been looking at that missile launcher and tracking those rockets. And they tell us they've been moved to the eastern side of the peninsula. They know that once this rocket is fueled it's good for several days, perhaps a week or more before it would have to be fired because it uses acid as part of the propellant, a mixture of that and that would corrode the tank. So they know there's a deadline here.

Some people had said it was the 15th, they're now saying it's the 10th because that was one of the ultimatums to that Kaesong industrial complex just on the other side of the border, the only real symbol of cooperation between North and South right now. There's an ultimatum for the workers to leave that facility by the 10th.

Also there were hints that the diplomats in Pyongyang were being told that if they wanted to leave they should decide to do so by the 10th. So now the South is surmising that the 10th is our likely date for launch.

But let me note here, Miguel, usually the North will notify civilian aviation sources and let them know, that is warn them for aircraft to stay out of a particular zone and really telegraph what they intend to do. We haven't seen that yet -- Miguel.

MARQUEZ: All right. And the U.S. also taking some moves to lower the tension there delaying its own test way off in California, yes?

CLANCY: Yes. Well, you know, the U.S. looks at it and they've heard the North Korean line. The North Koreans tested an ICBM essentially. They put a satellite into orbit back in December. Bang, smack down with U.N. sanctions. Well, the U.S. is going to do it right here. They're going to complain all over again bitterly why can some people test this and we can't? Well, the reason of course is that the U.N. Security Council looks with disdain on North Korea's practice of peddling these missiles around the world to countries in Iran and Pakistan. They feel that this is destabilizing some regions the actions that are taken by Pyongyang -- Miguel.

MARQUEZ: All right. Jim Clancy, thank you very much for keeping up with it all for us.

They may be the first family, but life at the White House isn't without problems. So what can -- how can we gauge Mrs. Obama's recent slip of the tongue? That's next.



MICHELLE OBAMA, FIRST LADY: Believe me, as a busy single mother or I shouldn't say single, as a busy mother, sometimes it -- you know when you've got the husband who's president it can feel a little single. But he's there.


MARQUEZ: All right. That was a Freudian slip heard around the world. First Lady Michelle Obama calling herself a single mother, but was it just a slip of the tongue by a mom with a busy husband or was she revealing something more about life in the White House?

I'm joined now by Barbara Kellerman, she's a presidential historian at Harvard University. She has a new book out, "The End of Leadership."

Barbara, when you heard that comment, what came to mind?

BARBARA KELLERMAN, PRESIDENTIAL HISTORIAN: Well, you know, Miguel, I think it was really much more a reference to times past than times present. It's well-known than when Obama was campaigning for the presidency he was gone a lot, for the better part of two years before he actually won the White House. It's not so relevant to their time in the White House. After all he's got a home office. They live in the same house. They work in the same house. There's a huge amount of emphasis on the girls as we have heard countless numbers of times.

So I think it may be a bit of a Freudian slip but not one that pertains as much to the present as it does to the recent past.

MARQUEZ: Will it have any effect beyond her on the president himself?

KELLERMAN: No. I don't think so. She has been very, very careful since the campaign, certainly since their time in the White House. In that sense she has been an exemplary first lady. As you well know her poll ratings are extremely high. I look for no negative effects on the Obama presidency whatsoever.

MARQUEZ: All right. You called Mrs. Obama and the White House a bit of a throwback, what exactly did you mean by that?

KELLERMAN: Well, I'm struck by the fact that this very capable, very smart, largely professional career woman has chosen as a first lady to be very traditional in her interests. She is a stay-at-home mom. Her interests outside that family domain are sort of women's domain, healthy bodies, healthy food, so forth and so on. She could as well be a first lady in the 1950s as in the second decade in the 21st century.

And we know that several of her predecessors have played far more active political roles. So in that sense I refer to her as a throwback. And I suspect her decision to play that relatively conventional role -- or their decision, she's on the cover of "Vogue" I believe it is this month, was a very deliberate one.

MARQUEZ: Yes. Well, obviously Hillary Clinton got very negative publicity when she headed up healthcare reform in the 1990s.

Raising kids in the White House is far from new. The Bushes had the twins, the Clintons raised Chelsea. Do we hear these frustrations about raising the two kids now?

KELLERMAN: Well, it depends on the time in which they lived and served. Of course the Kennedys had two tiny children, very young children, in the White House. The Johnsons in contrast had two White House -- they had two kids in the White House who were young adult women and who got married during that period. Trisha had a famous White House wedding. So did Lucy Bains Johnson. And Linda Bains Johnson. They too had White House weddings.

So it depends entirely on the period, what the culture expects. And as I've written before in my life, these are not just decorative roles. The roles that family members play whether kids or whether wives or whether siblings, they have a political impact. So each family, each first family calculates not only what is best for the family, but is what is best for the presidency.

MARQUEZ: All right. Interesting times. Barbara Kellerman, thank you very much for being with us.

KELLERMAN: My pleasure.

MARQUEZ: Will she or won't she? That's the question on everyone's lips. Is Hillary Clinton return to public stage this past week as her first major appearance since walking away from the State Department? And that just fueled more speculation about a possible presidential run in 2016. Clinton spoke at the Women in the World summit in New York.


HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: Now I have always believed that women are not victims. We are agents of change. We are drivers of projects.


MARQUEZ: Now while on stage Clinton was asked again if she plans to run in 2016. She didn't really answer. Kept her powder dry, but she may soon be more clear on that point.

Coming up, Jay-Z and Beyonce caught in a controversy all because of their choice for vacation. And there could be a federal investigation. We'll tell you where they went that's causing a stir.


MARQUEZ: Beyonce and Jay-Z are in hot water over their vacation to Cuba. Two Florida lawmakers are criticizing the superstar couple saying their trip to Havana to celebrate their fifth anniversary last week violated U.S. travel restrictions to the communist island.

The Republican representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinnen and Mario Diaz-Balart wrote a letter to a agency asking for an investigation into the trip saying the Castro regime used their visit as propaganda. Travel to Cuba was banned in 1959 after Fidel Castro took power.

And the holy grail of baseball cards is sold for a whopping $2.1 million at auction. The 1909 Honus Wagner card is one of about 50 in existence. The buyer is choosing to remain anonymous but is being called a wealthy investor and a baseball fan. I bet he is. $2.1 million is the highest price ever paid for a baseball card in a public auction.

From baseball to basketball, of course, the NCAA final is tomorrow night. And we have a beautiful weather here in Atlanta.

Meteorologist Alexandra Steele is in our weather center.

Alexandra, what can they expect today and tomorrow for the big game?

ALEXANDRA STEELE, AMS METEOROLOGIST: A million-dollar forecast. I could have topped that baseball card. I got a million dollar today, how about that? And then even better toward the Masters.

So, hi, everyone, waking up on this Sunday morning. Hope you have a great day. All right. Watching basketball late last night today in Atlanta, sunny, 74 degrees, well above average. So we've shooed the clouds, the cold, the rain, it's all gone. Monday, even tomorrow 78 degrees. So beautiful conditions. But maybe you're going to stay in town, how about this for a couple of days, right? Hit Atlanta then go east to Augusta.

All right. Masters, we're going to see it start on Monday of course if you're out there, maybe for some of those practice rounds. The gates open at 8:00 in the morning, 79 degrees, beautiful week, well above average temperature wise. Predominantly dry skies.

It's the Thursday into Friday period we're going to see a front pass, drive off showers -- no pun intended. Drive off showers and thunderstorms. And then for the weekend, Saturday and Sunday of next week, we're going to have sunny and like 73, 74 degree temperatures. So really great if you're lucky out -- to be out there for the weekend.

High temperatures not only here in Atlanta, Washington, D.C. as well. D.C., New York in the 50s yesterday. We get to the 60s today, 70s the next couple of days. So finally the spring warmth coming in time, right? Finally catching up with the season. But with the spring warmth in place, this is really the first chance we're going to have for some severe weather. Predominantly Monday into Tuesday and then potentially into Wednesday as well.

Here's kind of the bull's eye. Today there's a slight risk. Also what we're going to see the storm that's moved from the pacific northwest makes its way into Denver, Colorado. How about snow for Denver, Colorado, late Monday night into Tuesday? So 30-degree temperatures in the Colorado Rockies, 70 degree temperatures east of that. And of course with that that's where we get that eruption of severe weather.

So finally we're seeing it because of the warmth. So here's a look where the severe weather threat. Again, tomorrow kind of negligible. Light, maybe some hail damaging winds. The biggest threat. Tornadic activity on Tuesday, Oklahoma to Kansas, Missouri, and it's Arkansas and then it pushes east for the day on Wednesday, Miguel.

So we've got a lot of spring warmth. But with that of course part and parcel to that some severe weather, and we'll see that really kind of the first big spring storm Tuesday, Wednesday.

MARQUEZ: All right, the good, the bad and the ugly. Thank you very much, Alexandra Steele.

An incredible new video has come to light showing the man who murdered Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis. The Shelby County, Tennessee, released new videotape showing James Earl Ray. One tape shows authorities flying Ray back to Memphis.

There's a reason the video looks grainy and out of focus. The county sheriff's office bought a new Sony camera to tape Ray's return and prosecution but learned how to use it on the fly. Another shows police booking him into the county jail. Ray pled guilty to killing King and died in jail in 1998.

From heavy drinking to heavy drama, the men and women of "Mad Men" Are back and we're talking to one of the breakout stars. (COMMERCIAL BREAK)

MARQUEZ: Welcome back to CNN SUNDAY MORNING. I'm Miguel Marquez. Bottom of the hour now and here are some of the stories we're watching this hour.

North Korea may fire a test missile in the coming days. This according to South Korean government officials who say a push by North Korea for workers to leave a joint industrial factory in Pyongyang could mean they are preparing a test. South Korea says that as of now however nothing out of the ordinary has been detected.

Six Americans were killed in two separate attacks in Afghanistan yesterday. The deadliest attack was the bombing of a military convoy delivering books to a school in southern Afghanistan. One of those killed in the attacks was identified as Anne Smedinghoff, a State Department of foreign service officer. She was part of Secretary of State John Kerry's team just recently -- as recently as a month ago. Four more State Department personnel suffered injuries, one of them critically.

Pastor Rick Warren, his family and his church are grieving today. Warren's youngest son Matthew has committed suicide. Police say the 27-year-old's body was found at his home in Mission Viejo, California, on Friday. They say it appears he shot himself. An autopsy will be conducted.

In a note to members of his Saddleback Valley community church Rick Warren said his son had struggled from birth with mental illness, depression and suicidal thoughts. And he said words cannot express the grief his family feels right now.

Just days before Philadelphia was set to honor two fallen firefighters, one of the city's veteran fire captains died in the line of duty. Fire officials say Captain Michael Goodwin fell from a third-story roof onto another structure that was engulfed in flames. Captain Goodwin was 53 years old. He worked for the Philadelphia Fire Department for 29 years.

And check this out. This seven-year-old boy battling brain cancer had his dream come true yesterday. Little Jack Hoffman joined the Nebraska Corn Huskers for their spring scrimmage game and became the tiniest MVP when he carried the ball 69 yards for this very cool touchdown.

So sweet. Jack has been battling cancer for two years now. Last year he befriended Corn Husker star running back Rex Burkhead who became Captain of his support network called "Team Jack". When he made it to the end zone for his touchdown yesterday, both benches cleared. The players lifted Jack above their heads. The crowd in the stadium went -- of course they went wild.

Well, there are only two teams left dancing this morning. Louisville and Michigan will tip it off Monday night for the NCAA men's basketball championships.

CNN Sports Rachel Nichols was at the Final Four games here in Atlanta last night -- Rachel.


RACHEL NICHOLS, CNN SPORTS CORRESPONDENT: There have been a lot of blowouts in this year's NCAA tournament, but Saturday night was all about close calls as top seed Louisville had to rally from 12 points down to squeak past number nine Wichita State. And Michigan barely fended off Syracuse in that game's final seconds.


TREY BURKE, MICHIGAN GUARD: It was a close game throughout the whole game. You know I just kept telling the guys coming on the half time that Syracuse is a really challenging team and they're going to go on runs. And that are a lot of people will crack under pressure when you're in that type of situation.

MITCH MCGARY, MICHIGAN FORWARD: Just for us to be on that last ten seconds will try to get a stop when we needed it, it was big for our team. I know we grew from that.

RICK PITINO, LOUISVILLE HEAD COACH: I just kept telling our guys, look, guys, this is a dog fight tonight. It's not an offensive game. It's a dog fight. And you've got to win the fight. It's as simple as that.


NICHOLS: Louisville's Kevin Ware is on crutches after that horrible leg injury he suffered last weekend. But that didn't stop him from being courtside Saturday or from trying to coach up his teammates when they fell behind by double digits in the second half. During one time-out Ware even hopped up two steps and on to the court. And while a team trainer quickly pulled him back to the bench, he told me his team's win made him feel so good he almost thinks he could play in Monday's final.

Well, almost.

For CNN, I'm Rachel Nichols in Atlanta.


MARQUEZ: Almost. And if you're not into basketball, there are still plenty of events to enjoy. And most of them free. Like Sting and Dave Matthew Band concerts here today, that's where you'll find our entertainment correspondent Nischelle Turner. Oh, Nischelle.

NISCHELLE TURNER, CNN ENTERTAINMENT CORRESPONDENT: Hey there, Miguel. We are right in Centennial Park in the middle of the madness for the big dance concert series. This is a three-day concert. Some of the biggest names in music have taken the stage here. And the best thing about this weekend's concert series, it's all free. Yes, no one has to pay a dime. They just have to come out here and enjoy some of the best music they've ever heard. So already taking the stage we heard Ludacris, Flo Rida. Let me tell you they had the crowd rocking. Now the host for the big dance concert series, Andy Richter. We all know we love Andy Richter from the Conan O'Brien show. He's kind of Conan's sidekick, he told me basically he's married to Conan. So he's Conan's husband, his television husband.

And we talked about a lot of things. We sat down. We talked a little Final Four. We talked some of his favorite foods and why he's addicted to coffee. But we also talked about the big headline that's been happening this week. Yes, Jimmy Fallon taking over the "Tonight Show" for Jay Leno. And he had some thoughts. Here they are.


ANDY RICHTER, COMEDIAN: I don't care anymore. Let, you know, let a duck host the "Tonight" show. I don't care. I'm happy for Jimmy Fallon I guess. And I'm happy when nice people get things that they want. But I don't care.


TURNER: So basically Andy Richter says he doesn't care who hosts the "Tonight" show. But again, I'm sure he cares who's going to take the stage here at the big dance concert series. And today it's going to be an all-star line-up. And when I say all-star, I'm not just selling this. It's really going to be an all-star line-up. Listen to this -- Sting, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Dave Matthews Band. Now, that is a concert.

And once again, it's all free. The people at Centennial Park have been having a good time. And I have too. That's why I'm still here. Miguel, back to you.

MARQUEZ: Thanks to our own star Nischelle Turner.

A pint-sized preacher praised and deliverer sermon that mesmerize adult audiences. Wait until you hear him speak.


SAMUEL GREEN: Thanks for everyone here today and for those who want to come but they could not. Lord, please keep your arms around us and --



MARQUEZ: A Mississippi preacher is getting as much attention for his age as his size as well as his sermons. Meet seven-year-old Samuel Green of Burian (ph) Seventh Day Adventist Church in Jackson, Mississippi.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) S. GREEN: Job had nothing. He lost his land. He lost his animals. He lost his sons and daughters. But do you know what Job did? Job bowed to his knees and began worshipping God saying the Lord has gave and the lord has taken away.


MARQUEZ: It is just adorable. Believe it or not that's Samuel preaching at age five. I spoke to Samuel and his mom and asked how he got started at such a young age.


S. GREEN: I started preaching since I was three.

MARQUEZ: Wow. And then what sort of drove you on? What -- what is it that moves you to preach?

S. GREEN: I just plan. I did prayer. And then they ask me to come to their church and do a live sermon. And that's how it all got to start.

MARQUEZ: But you don't use notes? I mean how do you do this? Just from memory? Is it feeling? How do you -- how do you actually do this? It's amazing.

S. GREEN: Memory.

MARQUEZ: Memory? You read something and you remember it?

S. GREEN: Yes.

MARQUEZ: Wow. Mrs. Green, this guy sounds like a handful for you. Does he keep you busy?

JOANN GREEN, SAMUEL'S MOTHER: He keeps me very busy, but it's a lot - it's a lot of fun. Traveling around and just being there for him when he's speaking is a great joy.

MARQUEZ: It must be fantastic to watch. How do you -- do you guys both prepare together? How do you prepare for these, Samuel?

S. GREEN: I -- I go in to a little room. And I study my sermons with my teacher.

MARQUEZ: Wow. Well, it's paying off because they're pretty -- it's pretty amazing to watch. Let's listen to another clip.


S. GREEN: He blesses us when we are faithful and obedient to him. The bible tells us about many people who love God and put their trust and faith in him. One of my favorite people in the bible who put trust and faith in God was Daniel. It's not just called Daniel.

(END VIDEO CLIP) MARQUEZ: Now, here the microphone and the ear piece you're wearing slips during your message, yet you continue without missing a beat. Not many grown-ups can do that. What was going through your mind at that point?

S. GREEN: I -- I don't get nervous. I don't get frightened because I know that God has my back.

MARQUEZ: Well, that's -- that's a pretty good guy to have your back, I think. Mom, Joann, you must be so proud to watch this guy do this. When was the first time you heard him preach and what did you think?

J. GREEN: Well, the first time I heard him preaching was on a teleconference. And he spoke over the teleconference and set a record breaking number of them -- callers that were calling in to listen to him. And then Miss Clementine Collins asked that he will come and preach live at her church in Birmingham, Alabama. And the first time I heard him actually live deliver a sermon my husband and I both was amazed.

MARQUEZ: Well, we're -- we're all pretty amazed. Does he get a lot of this from -- from you and from your parents?

J. GREEN: Not a lot from me. Really, I'm not a public speaker. And my husband is very bashful. So we know that it is a gift from God.

MARQUEZ: Wow. Samuel, what do you enjoy most about preaching?

S. GREEN: Yearning (ph) around and sharing God's words to others.

MARQUEZ: Well, that's pretty special. And what do you want to be when you grow up? Maybe a doctor?

S. GREEN: Yes, that takes care of children.

MARQUEZ: Really? So and why not a preacher? Why don't you want to go into -- go into the church?

S. GREEN: Well, that's actually two jobs. I really think I'm going to own a church.

MARQUEZ: You're going to own a church but you want to be a doctor as well?

Wow. You're going to be a very busy young man. What do you want most people to know about you?

S. GREEN: That it's -- it's not me. It's a gift from God, that is God and he's working through me. So it's not me.

MARQUEZ: It's not -- so this is really a feeling for you?

S. GREEN: Yes. S. GREEN: Yes.

MARQUEZ: All right. Thank you very much, Samuel Green and Joann Green, thank you for joining us today.

J. GREEN: Thank you.

S. GREEN: You're welcome.


MARQUEZ: If you'd like to see more stories on faith, be sure to check out our belief blog at

It's time to get you caught up and ready for the week ahead. On Monday of course it's the NCAA finals -- the final basketball game Monday night here. Louisville taking on Michigan right here in Atlanta; tipoff is at 9:00 p.m. We'll have coverage all afternoon right here on CNN.

Also on Monday the funeral for Roger Ebert, the legendary film critic will be laid to rest in Chicago. Services will be open to the public. A memorial is planned for April 11th.

Moving onto Wednesday, there's a possible North Korean missile test may occur, that's according to South Korean news agency. This is one of the missiles that had been reportedly moved to the east coast of the country.

And moving onto Saturday here -- NRA sponsors NASCAR race. My wall is not participating very well. NASCAR race in the Texas Motor Speedway, the group says the sponsorship is not political, just marketing at sports events.

And finally, come on, wall, you can do it. "ANTHONY BOURDAIN PARTS UNKNOWN", that's a big premier for CNN; that premiers next Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

Now he is smooth and dapper. And what's it like to audition for "Mad Men"? We'll have one of the show's breakout stars -- he can share his memories.


MARQUEZ: Get your martinis ready. The ad men of "Mad Men" are back. "Mad Men" returns tonight, and Fredricka Whitfield spoke with breakout star Ben Feldman about his role as Jewish copywriter Michael Ginsberg.


BEN FELDMAN, ACTOR: Ginsberg is an other. He's different from everybody else. He stands out in every other way whether he's socially -- he doesn't have a filter. He doesn't know how to communicate with other people. I think that's just one other element. I think he's -- he is from a different world than the rest of the characters on the show. And that's just one example.

FREDRICKA WHITFIELD, CNN ANCHOR: In fact, let's watch an example of your character in this story.

FELDMAN: I didn't pick this profession. It picked me. I didn't have any control over it. Turns out it's the only thing I can do.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Your work's very impressive, but --

FELDMAN: Here are some other advantages. I have no hobbies, no interests, no friends. I'm one of those people who talks back to the radio. No girlfriend, no family. I will live here.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And you're like everyone else.

FELDMAN: I've never been accused of that, but I really am trying.

That was my audition scene, by the way.


FELDMAN: Yes. It was that but with different when you go in to the audition there are different character names so you don't know who you're actually going to be acting with.

WHITFIELD: So what do you think when you look at that again then?

FELDMAN: It kind of reminds me of how terrified I was that day. It was John Hamm was directing. It was like my first day -- first or second day on set. And it was, you know, I was playing this kind of lunatic as far as I was concerned. And up against Elizabeth Moss, who's an incredible actress herself.

So as far as looking ahead, on this show you just kind of focus on what's happening that day. You don't try and read too much into stuff because then you might find yourself playing something that's going to happen down the line. And the last thing anybody wants to do on this show is give anything away.


Marquez: "Mad Men" returns tonight on AMC.

While some countries ban drugs and other lethal weapons, Uganda officials have proposed a ban that has nothing to do with public safety. Here to tell us more is editorial producer, Nadia Bilchik -- Nadia. What are you talking about?

NADIA BILCHIK, CNN EDITORIAL PRODUCER: The Ugandan government, part of a wider pornography ban is looking to ban any skirt above the knee for which the wearer will get a hefty fine or a jail sentence. So if you want to know why, let's hear from Simon Lokodo who is the minister of ethics in Uganda.


SIMON LOKODO, UGANDA MINISTER OF ETHICS: Anything related to indecent dressing therefore exposing certain parts of the anatomy of a person. All right, I call it, I call it, pornographic and therefore condemn it.


BILCHIK: So it just condemns anything that he says shows or reveals parts of the body that are erotic.

MARQUEZ: It's not the first time they've tried to ban miniskirts, is that right?

BILCHIK: In 2008 again part of the Yoweri Museveni, very Christian government, they tried to ban it again -- didn't go through. So they're attempting to do it again.

And Miguel, as you can imagine, Ugandan women are not very pleased. So let's hear from some Ugandan women on their response to the possible banning of the miniskirts.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Everything bad begins from the mind. So really let him first work on the mind of men and then come talk about to me of fashion. Because I don't think miniskirts and mini-dresses are trendy and we have a right to fashion, you know.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: If it's the micro-miniskirt, then I think they should question that, but then if you're wearing (inaudible), it's ok. But during the day, I don't fancy that.


MARQUEZ: And the big concern here is the rolling back for women's rights in Uganda?

BILCHIK: Yes, of course, sometimes it's a throwback to the Idi Amin era but much concern and there's been a lot of traffic in the Twitterverse. This particular tweet caught my interest because the tweeter said we have mini hospitals that can't cater for our needs, mini roads with potholes, mini funds for education, why focus on miniskirts?"

MARQUEZ: The appropriately dressed today in a miniskirt -- Nadia Bilchik, thank you very much.

BILCHIK: Yes. Thank you and #savetheminiskirt. Remember this is a country that has already about 28 million people. By the year 2050 they say there are going to be 130 million people. So perhaps the population explosion may be more of an issue than the miniskirt.

MARQUEZ: Other things to think about.

BILCHIK: But let us together save the miniskirt. MARQUEZ: Save the miniskirt. Nadia, thank you very much.

Coming up Jeanne Moos gives us a story of a man who's down on his luck but thanks to this viral video he may be seeing a little extra cash in his pocket -- the story of the magic mustache next.



UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey, I want to make you work for your dollar. Say something with that great radio voice.

TED WILLIAMS: When you're listening to nothing but the best of oldies, you're listening to Magic 98.9.

Thank you so much. God bless you. Thank you.

And we'll be back with more right after these words.


MARQUEZ: So who could forget the homeless gentleman with the golden voice? That was Ted Williams and his radio announcer's voice gained him fame and a little cash when that video went YouTube crazy.

Here's another guy who's following in Ted's footsteps. His talent -- a magical mustache; Jeanne moos has the story of a man who has the amazing ability to make his whiskers walk.


JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: He may be homeless, but he has dignity. The only thing that crawls is his mustache.

CLYDESDALE, WHISKER WALKER: You can crawl with it.

MOOS: No point in keeping your magic mustache stashed.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What's your name?

CLYDESDALE: They call me Clydesdale.

MOOS: Clydesdale was discovered by YouTube pranksters who call themselves "Whatever" based in Santa Barbara, California. They specialize in pranks like talking through people.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How's the piano lesson yesterday.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes. He was a great piano teacher. They ever tell you how they met.

MOOS: They had just been shooting another prank when Brian Altarac (ph) stumbled on Clydesdale and commented on his beard.

BRIAN ALTARAC, WHATEVER: Oh, that's a cool beard. And he was like, "Oh, yes, check this out." And he did the mustache dance.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Can you do it a couple times? Is that cool or --

CLYDESDALE: I always do the smile. The smile's a good thing.

MOOS: With Clydesdale's permission he put his mustache dance on YouTube.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Just flexing your --

CLYDESDALE: Actually, I don't have no teeth.


CLYDESDALE: That's just my tongue. I play harmonica.


MOOS: Oonline commenters suggested taking up a collection for Clydesdale. Maybe they could collect enough to get Clydesdale some new teeth though that might mess up his movable mustache technique. In no time the fund broke the $1,500 mark. They went looking for Clydesdale, found him playing guitar in the park.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What's up, Clydesdale?

MOOS: They mentioned the cash which can be collected until the end of the month.

ALTARAC: It's interesting (inaudible) that he wasn't in a rush to get the money.

CLYDESDALE: Thank you very much.

MOOS: It reminds us of the last homeless guy who got famous after being discovered pan handling.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Say something with that great radio voice.

WILLIAMS: When you're listening to nothing but the best of oldies, you're listening to Magic 98.9.

MOOS: Ted Williams, the man with the golden voice, ended up on talk shows, wrote a book, does voiceovers, his life went up and down. He now lives in an 1,800-square foot condo in Ohio. Ok. So maybe the man with the dancing mustache doesn't have quite the same ring as.

WILLIAMS: The man with the God-given golden voice.

MOOS: But when the payoff is smiles, sometimes it pays not to keep --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Can you show me the caterpillar one more time.

MOOS: -- a stiff upper lip.

Jeanne Moos, CNN --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's awesome.

MOOS: New York.
