From singing at the ING New York City Marathon to auditioning for America’s Got Talent to releasing his new book, Russo has transformed his life into a meaningful inspiration for everyone who feels stuck in a job and unable to pursue personal dreams
“Don’t Die with Your Song Unsung” tells the story of how Russo’s life changed completely when he took his amazing voice to the streets of New York during his lunch hour to sing for people more accustomed to hearing the noise of New York’s busy streets. In a few short months, Russo has transformed what could have been a flash of street fame into meaningful inspiration for everyone who feels stuck in a job and unable to pursue personal dreams
His narrative, along with Goeglein’s personal development commentary, tells readers that they don’t have to settle for where they are. “I achieved my goal of singing in public to see people smile,” reflects Russo. “Now, my goal is to help others understand that they, too, can pursue their dreams while also holding down a job and paying the bills. My message is: If I could do it, you can, too.”
Russo has taken advantage of other opportunities to sing and help others smile, dream, and know the power of love. He has been featured on National Public Radio, Good Morning America, Access Hollywood, Fox and Friends, World News Tonight with Brian Williams, the Rachael Ray Show, and Inside Edition. He has performed at New York’s premier venues including the famous Blue Note Jazz Club, Rockefeller Center, the City’s Columbus Day parade, and the ING New York City Marathon start line, where a television commentator hailed him as “a New York legend.”
A lifelong New Yorker who lives in Queens, Russo stepped onto the main stage of his life through the magic of an August 2, 2011 YouTube video. Known as the “2nd Avenue Subway Sinatra,” Gary continues to work for the Kiewit Construction Company while also pursuing his signing, speaking, and writing careers.
