A homeless Russian singer who has become an overnight internet sensation, has been offered a record deal by a Grammy-nominated music producer, signaling a reversal of fortunes for the destitute virtuoso.

After falling on hard times, Emily Zamourka has been living on the streets of Los Angeles, but after a viral video a police officer recorded of her singing Puccini in the subway it has led to an outpouring of support, donations and job offers.

The Sept. 26 Twitter post, uploaded by a Los Angeles police officer to the LAPD account, simply stated: “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,”

The producer hopes to create a “huge classical-EDM crossover hit record” with her, which will be entitled ‘Paradise’. It’s not clear if she has accepted the offer, the outlet reported.

Zamourka, 52, emigrated to the United States when she was 24 and taught music among her several jobs, but struggled to make ends meet after she was hospitalized for pancreas and liver problems. After a long recovery, she turned to street performing to help pay the bills. However, the theft of her violin eventually forced her onto the streets.
