Soul Fixin'

subway soul.

Believe it or not, some of NYC's best undiscovered, raw & uncut talent can be found hidden underground. I've had the pleasure of witnessing the man known as the 'Singing Dragon' do what he does best, sing in NYC's subway. Born Mitchell Hughes in South Carolina, the 'Singing Dragon' has been singing for NYC strap-hangers for years. With a voice reminiscent of soul legends such as Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett and Johnny Taylor, Mitchell Hughes possesses one of the subway's best voices. I've run into Mitchell on two separate Sunday nights at the 42nd Street/Port Authority station. He can also been seen & heard at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle station.
