If you walk through the NYC subway you’ll more than likely come across someone busking on the platform–from performance art to struggling bands to teens just practicing their instruments outside their quite apartments. But it’s not often you are stopped cold in your tracks and the hair stands up on your arm from hearing a man belt out oldies such as Unchained Melody and A Change Is Gonna Come. Enter Mike Yung.

Mike has been singing since age eleven and performing in the subways of NYC for the last thirty-five years. He said one day he was convinced by a friend to head underground to make some money performing and it took off from there. Yung usually uses the 23rd St. station in Manhattan as a stage for his shows but is forced to relocate if there is a busker already in his spot. To call this man a ‘must-see act’ (or hear) is an understatement. Mike is the next big thing and clearly I’m not the only one who thinks so. Last year, one of Mike’s videos went viral and The Late Late Show host James Corden was so blown away, he invited him to perform on his show (video below).

And, yes, the man still doesn’t have a record deal as of this post. I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of Mike Yung in the future–at least I hope so.

If you are looking for more on Mike or his music, you can search Youtube or check him out on Spotify and iTunes. You can also catch him on Instagram/Twitter @mikeyungnyc

Of course the ‘Ass Eating Made Simply’ picture from the subway is staged. Comedian Scott Rogowsky took to the subway with a number of book covers in this creative/funny video to get reactions from fellow passengers. Just so happens this specific one got the most attention. Slow clap for this man…

One-Legged Woman Break Dances In Subway

AMNY: There are plenty of performers in the subway trying to get attention, but one breakdancer stole the show recently at the Union Square stop with more than just her moves. Australian-born Roya Abdolhosini, also known as Roya the DestRoya, not only impressed an audience with her dancing, she also inspired many people because she did so despite having only one leg.

“I just want to dance, and seeing people smile from it makes my day,” she said. “And it feels good.”

A video of the 27-year-old woman’s performance at the 14th Street-Union Square subway station got widespread attention last week days after being posted on Facebook, where it was was seen more than 270,000 times and was written about by the Daily Mail U.K. Abdolhosini, who currently lives in Montreal, where she was training in dancing and circus arts, said she was surprised by the response. She said she was visiting New York for three weeks during the holidays, and was hanging out with some friends when she did the impromptu dance. In the video, taken by a friend, she throws down her crutches before dropping to the floor to perform, including doing a long handstand for gawking straphangers. She said she’s received a lot of messages of support from people of all ages.

“It makes me feel really good,” she said. “It’s really, really nice.”

Abdolhosini, who says her leg “simply didn’t grow” like it was supposed, got started in gymnastics before moving on to circus arts, dancing and other body movement. She said she is raising money to potentially return to the United States for more training opportunities as she works to achieve her dream. She said her goal is to join a circus company or a concert tour that requires dancers. “I just want to perform,” she said.

By far the best thing I’ve seen in a long time! A guy tossing a chick around performing WWE finishing moves synced to Jim Ross?! I can wake up to this every morning! First of all, any girlfriend who would let their man do this to them is an obvious keeper. Second…there wasn’t a whole lot of room for error in a couple of those moves. One slip on that diving board and that chick was a vegetable.
