About The Show

Apollo Music Café Featuring

Mike Yung with Michelle Brooks-Thompson

Mike Yung is a 56-year-old singer from Brownsville, NY. As a teenager, he was discovered and signed as an artist to RCA and CBS and eventually landed at T-Electric, the same label held by Etta James and Luther Vandross. Yung was gearing up to be a household name when the label suddenly went bankrupt and his debut album never came out. After being forced to find a way to make a living to support his family, he took his talent underground and began busking in the subway.

For the past 37 years, Yung's voice has been reverberating throughout the walls of the NYC subway stations. It has become more difficult with the fact that people carry less cash these days. Yung continues to enjoy what he does but hopes one day he will get his chance to show the world his talent, move his family out of the projects and finally at 56 years old, get a chance to put out his long forthcoming debut album.

This evening also features winner of the 2017 Apollo Amateur Night contest, Michelle Brooks-Thompson. Known for her powerful vocals, she was also a finalist on Season 3 of NBC's The Voice.
