Andrew Johnston

Bourbonnais native Andrew Johnston sings in the Chicago subway as a street performer.

Andrew Johnston, 26, of Bourbonnais, will be a guest on Friday's episode of "Steve," a daytime talk show hosted by Steve Harvey.

Johnston has been singing in the CTA tunnels and streets of Chicago for a little more than two years, and he went viral last year with a performance of India Arie's "Ready For Love." That performance, and those like it, helped him gain an opportunity to become a guest on "Steve."

"A fellow CTA passenger had been recording videos of the performers in the subway, and it just so happens that a producer from the show saw it and told Steve about it, and they wanted to know how to get in contact with me," Johnston said.
