Emily Zamourka was filmed by an LAPD police officer singing a Puccini aria. Her voice has captured the imagination of an entire city and many more people around the world. The LAPD asked, “Emily, what can we do for you?” And her answer was, “I want to thank Officer Frazier for taking the video.”
Watch the heartwarming moment of their reunion:
The endearing moment on video that has blessed countless people was of Emily singing, “O bio bambino caro.” She became a viral sensation overnight, and financial support and well wishes are still pouring in.
Los Angeles Councilman Joe Buscaino invited the 52 year-old, “to perform at the unveiling of the city’s new Little Italy district on Saturday. Then, his office immediately started working on finding her housing.”
Emily is overwhelmed with the attention she has been receiving. Local news found her, “asking her where she learned to sing like that. She said that she was never classically trained and that she did not attend music school, but that she would take any opportunity to sing on a stage.
“You know why I do it in the subway?” she asked. “Because it sounds so great. It feels like I’m already there.”
More than $30,000 has been raised for her on a GoFundMe page by over 800 people captured by the voice God gave her. But there are some detractors among the general public thinking the ‘discovery was staged,’ or is too good to be true.
The initial LAPD tweet has had over 1,000,000 views.
