Emily recently spoke to ABC7 about her newly founded fame and her past.
Emily Zamourka moved to the United States more than two decades ago. She started by teaching violin and piano lessons, but fell ill and wound up homeless when she couldn’t afford medical care.
“I have people that feel sorry for me, but I don’t want to be a burden to anybody,” she told ABC 7.
Despite how she feels, others feel compelled to help her out. People made two GoFundMe pages for the singer, one over 50,000 and the other at 32,000.
