Homeless Woman Singing Opera to Subway Riders in Viral Video

A homeless woman with a breathtaking voice has gone viral, after catching the attention of a police officer on a subway platform.

The clip, understood to have been captured by an Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer, shows the woman singing the operatic aria “O mio babbino caro” as she stands loaded with bags on the platform.

Several Twitter users replied to the LAPD’s Twitter post to say they recognised the woman, and she later appeared in an interview with NBC Los Angeles.

Named by the news channel as Emily Zamourka, the report described her as a woman who grew up in Russia and had hoped to become a singer, but had recently been left homeless.

“I’m sleeping where I can sleep,” Zamourka told the NBC in the interview and added she sang in the metro “because it sounds so great”.
