Homeless Subway Singer, Emily Zamourka, Offered Major Recording Contract

Emily Zamourka

Homeless Russian singer, Emily Zamourka, who captured the hearts of Los Angeles subway riders and internet fans, just scored a major record deal.

Grammy-nominated music producer Joel Diamond said he drafted an offer letter for Zamourka in the hopes of making a “huge classical-EDM crossover hit record for the subway soprano.”

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

The producer first learned of the now-infamous singer after the Los Angeles Police Department tweeted a video of her singing opera in a subway station.

The video quickly went viral and led to Zamourka being identified by name.

Zamourka’s stunning soprano voice not only caught the attention of Diamond, the music producer, but also Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, who sent her a message, saying, “I just wanna say to you, you better continue on.”
