Subway singer Mike Yung impressed America's Got Talent judges in July when he took the stage and showcased his stunning voice during the early auditions and nabbed himself and invite to come back to the show.
Weeks later, Yung, 56, blew the audience away yet again when he gave his rendition of "A Change is Gonna Come" and got a standing ovation from the often critical Simon Cowell. However, behind Yung's voice was a sad story and during the August 2 episode of the NBC series, he revealed that his home had gone into foreclosure.
After the crowd rallied around him, Yung started a Go Fund Me account and explained more details about his situation.
“As many of you might already know I have been paying my bills and providing for my family my entire life by busking in the subways of New York City for the past 37 years," he wrote, according to a report by Hollywood Life. "As hard as this is, I am reaching out to you because I have no other choice. The house my family lives in was foreclosed on and we received court papers to vacate the premises. I do not have the money to pay first months rent, or the deposit for a new place."
On Yung's Go Fund Me page, he's requested $10,000 and is just over $1,000 away from his goal.
"I want anyone who donates to know that I plan to return the favor in the future in some way," he promised at the bottom of his page. "I dont know what that entails yet, but I promise I will make it up to every single one of you individuals. I am a man of my word. Its really all I have and ever had in my lifetime."
