September 15, 2016

Mike Yung has been busking around New York City for over two decades, ever since a CBS Records deal fell through in 1980. Over two and a half decades later, a video of Yung singing "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers really, really well went viral on Twitter, and he was asked to perform the song last night on The Late Late Show With James Corden. After the performance, Corden is more giddy than usual and bandleader Reggie Watts is in tears; watch above to see why.
