Emily Zamourka is her name, but until recently she was known to Los Angeles locals as the homeless subway singing lady. Her voice is unbelievable, and talent undeniable, so how did someone so talented end up homeless wandering the subway? It's a story too many people know all too well.
Originally from Russia, Zamourka became homeless after she was hit with massive medical bills. She is a classically trained violinist but unfortunately her $10,000 violin had been stolen, leaving her to earn money by singing for passersby. But it looks like her luck is changing all thanks to a video uploaded to Twitter by an LAPD officer. He recorded her performance and uploaded it to Twitter from the official LAPD twitter account, noting, "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." Since seeing the video, multiple GoFundMe pages have been set up for Zamourka and she was even gifted a new violin from a solo violinist.
