      Mike Yung


      Mike Yung is a 58-year-old singer from Brownsville, New York, a neighborhood in Brooklyn. As a teenager, he was discovered and signed as an artist to RCA and CBS and eventually landed at T-Electric, the same label as Etta James and Luther Vandross. Yung was gearing up to be a household name when the label suddenly went bankrupt; his debut album was never released. After being forced to find a way to make a living to support his family, he took his talent underground and began busking in the subway. For the past 37 years, Yung's voice has been reverberating throughout the walls of the NYC subway system. In 2016, Yung was put back in the public eye after a video of him singing his version of the Righteous Brothers classic "Unchained Melodies" in the NYC subway went viral, accumulating over 500 million total views. He has performed on the Late Late Show with James Corden and was a semifinalist on Season 12 of Americas Got Talent. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, he has begun working on his debut album, "Never Give Up", something he has been waiting his whole life for. The albums first single, Alright, was released last month and is currently available on all music platforms.Mike has appeared on the Late Show with James Corden, Americas Got Talent (Semifinalist) and has been featured on notable news outlets such as Fader, Vibe, Billboard, and The Guardian among many others.
