According to TMZ, the woman who has been identified as Emily Zamourka captured the hearts of Los Angeles subway riders and internet fans, including Grammy-nominated music producer Joel Diamond. TMZ recently caught up with Joel who shared that he was so moved by the viral clip that he drafted an offer letter for Zamourka in the hopes of making a “huge classical-EDM crossover hit record for the subway soprano.”

Diamond went on to explain that the first record will be called “Paradise” and released on Silver Blue Records, the record label he founded in 1973.

The 52-year-old recently spoke to ABC7 following her new fame and shared that she became homeless after a run of bad luck. Zamourka moved to the United States more than two decades ago and was teaching violin and piano lessons, but fell ill and wound up homeless when she couldn’t afford medical care, The Post reports.

“I have people that feel sorry for me, but I don’t want to be a burden to anybody,” she told ABC 7.

Despite her feelings, many people were so compelled to help her out and created two GoFundMe campaigns that have already raised thousands of dollars for Zamourka, one surpassing $52,000 and the other tipping $32,000.

In addition to all of this, TMZ reports that she also scored a gig singing at an Italian heritage event in Los Angeles on Saturday.
