Opera singing homeless LA woman offered recording contract

  • 03/10/2019

A homeless woman who shot to internet fame after she was recorded singing in a Los Angeles subway has reportedly been offered a recording contract. 

Emily Zamourka's stunning operatic performance of a Puccini aria was uploaded to the LAPD's Twitter account last week and has since gone viral. 

According to TMZ, the clip has now caught the attention of Grammy-nominated music producer Joel Diamond, who says he wants to work with Zamourka. 

The gossip website reports Diamond is offering the Russian-born singer a contract with his record label, Silver Blue Records. 

The producer is reportedly interested in creating a "huge classical/EDM crossover hit record for the subway soprano", which he plans to call "paradise". 

In the viral video, Zamourka is pushing a trolley and carrying multiple bags when she pauses to perform a near-note perfect rendition of 'O Mio Babbino Caro'.

The LAPD account captioned the video: "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".

Whether or not Zamourka will accept the office remains to be seen, but meanwhile, two GoFundMe campaigns have raised over USD $89,000 for her.
