Hey, Mike! Introduce yourself.
My name is Mike Yung. I’ve spent the past 38 years in the subway busking and making a living, while supporting my family through the grace of God.
How did you get your start in the industry?
A video of me singing Unchained Melody went viral and changed my life in ways I could only imagine. I was one of the semi finalists on America’s Got Talent. I got to travel all over the world and I was able to release a few songs.
What’s your favorite release?
I’ve been grateful to do a collaboration with Martin Garrix. We have a song out called Dreamer.
What was one of your favorite experiences in the industry?
I did a Europe tour.
What have you been up to since COVID started?
The pandemic hit NYC hard and put a lot of things on hold. But, I will never give up and am still singing and striving for success as much as I can.
