James Corden gives Subway Singer a Chance on National TV, and He Aces IT!
A video of Mike Yung singing “Unchained Melody” on a New York City subway platform went viral last week, turning him into an internet sensation.
He is one of the lucky few talented subway singers, who can now say they’ve been discovered in the hustling, bustling underground subway system of Manhattan.
Recently, Yung was filmed singing “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers at the 23rd Street subway station. The clip went viral and caught the attention of late night TV show host and notorious music lover James Corden.
Corden was so impressed by Yung’s impromptu subway performance that he demanded the singer perform on his show, The Late Show With James Corden! In turn, Corden gave the unknown vocalist an opportunity to share his talent with the world — and Yung did not disappoint.
I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of Mike Yung, and that’s definitely a good thing for music. How cool is it that he can thank the internet for shooting him to stardom?!
