Homeless woman, Emily Zamourka, a 52-year-old Russian immigrant who went viral for her voice is getting a record deal.
A few days ago a Los Angeles Police Officer heard Zamourka’s voice in the Metro and pulled out his phone to record her. She was singing an acapella rendition of Puccini’s “O Mil Babbino Caro.” The LAPD posted the video on twitter saying, “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,” and the video went viral!
She became known as the “subway Soprano.” Her quick rise to internet fame has not stopped there. A crowd fund page was set up and has already accumulated $100,000 in donations. The biggest blessing from this new found fame is the record deal she scored with Joel Diamond, a Grammy nominated producer. Looks like she will be here for more than the 15 minutes of fame!
