A man from Oklahoma is brightening up people’s moods on their daily subway commute through country and folk music.
Jesse Cohen is a singer who taught himself how to play guitar and learned how to sing from listening to his mother’s large record collection.
He’s been performing in New York for about 10 years now, and spends a lot of time at the Seventh Avenue subway station in his neighborhood of Park Slope.
Cohen makes roughly $25,000 a year with tips.  He says the money has helped him pay his rent.
A crowd favorite of his is when he sings ‘Hallelujah.’
