Subway Singing Sensation Mike Yung Wows Again on ‘Late Late Show With James Corden’

Will Lerner

Millions have been captivated by the story of Mike Yung, a singer who’s become an Internet sensation after his performance of “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers on a New York City subway stop was posted online. Infatuated with his performance, Late Late Show host James Corden and his staff were able to track down Yung and have him perform on their show.

Wearing that same Brooklyn Nets hat seen in the video that introduced him to so many new fans, Yung showed his vocal prowess. But it wasn’t the first time he has impressed listeners. In an interview with Pitchfork, Yung explained that he was signed to a record deal as a teenager, but it fell through when the label went bankrupt. Ever since, he’s primarily earned an income by busking and performing with various bands.
If you want access to Yung’s cover that’s more readily accessible than a video, there’s some great news. He tweeted:

He also added:


Until that album gets released, you can enjoy this haunting performance by Yung, one that got Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts to tear up.

The Late Late Show With James Corden airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
