reporThis is what I found on BOREDPANDA.COM:

A police officer stumbled upon a woman singing opera in the Wilshire-Normandie subway station. The mesmerizing performance was filmed and soon posted on the LAPD Twitter account with a poetic caption: “4 million people call LA home. 4 million stories. 4 million voices… sometimes you just have to stop and listen to one, to hear something beautiful”.

The woman introduced herself as Emily Zamourka, a 52-year-old songstress and musician from Russia. Zamourka learned to sing as a child by watching opera singers perform on television. Her passion for music lead to mastering the piano and violin later in her life.

She eventually moved to North America in the hopes of independence and new experiences. She worked in nursing homes and restaurants before rediscovering her passion for music and started teaching it. Unfortunately, medical problems were proving to be a huge struggle for her, which is how she ended up in Los Angeles.


Zamourka became homeless after the loss of her $10,000 violin, which was supplementing her income as she was deeply in debt due to huge medical bills.

She was featured on several news sites, and a GoFundMe campaign was set up. It has raised over $61,000 so far.

and a GoFundMe page was started. It has raised over $61,000 so far.
