Emily Zamurka, 52, left thousands hypnotized after her singing was captured at Normandie's Purple Line / Wilshire Subway in Coretown.
The cast came to the United States from Russia at the age of 24.
As a trained violinist and pianist, she teaches lessons before experiencing serious health challenges. She has done several tasks to bring the two together.
She played the violin on the street before her instrument was stolen while performing in downtown Los Angeles. Shortly thereafter, Zamurka is driven out of her home and becomes homeless. She started singing after that. Although not classically trained, she said she did it because of her love for music.
Zamurka dreams of one day being able to do music again.
