The subway can be a hectic and uncomfortable place, but it can also be a space for commuters to take a moment for themselves. Whether you choose to read, listen to music, or just people-watch, the subway is a space that is yours to use as you please. However, for one group of commuters in New York, their time on the subway was made extra special by a talented busker.

Mike Yung has been singing in the subway for 30 years, and his talent has not gone unnoticed. His soulful rendition of the Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody” went viral on YouTube, with 40 million views in just a week. When commuters heard him singing at one of the subway stops, they were captivated by his unique voice.

Despite the hustle and bustle of the subway, Yung’s performance managed to draw people in and create a moment of shared connection. The busy New Yorkers slowed down and forgot about their worries as they let themselves get lost in the haunting sound of Yung’s voice.

Yung’s talent did not go unnoticed beyond the subway either. He appeared on America’s Got Talent after a video of his performance went viral, and even got invited onto the James Corden show. Yung’s subway performances remind us of the unexpected moments of beauty that can be found in everyday life, and the power of music to bring people together.
