Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. ‘We Saw with Our Brains, But We Listened with Our Hearts.’


In this contentious and cynical time in the United States, I found this story a welcome relief from the nightly news.

A Tweet from LAPD Headquarters:

Her voice continues to captivate our city, and as the offers for help pour in, we asked: “Emily, what can we do for you?” Her answer: “I want to thank Officer Frazier for taking the video.”

Her wish was granted tonight.

When Inside Edition spoke to Zamourka, she said she dreamed of meeting the officer who changed her life.

“I want to thank the police officer who was so kind to me and made me, gosh, I don’t know, so famous,” she said.

Zamourka said she became homeless after a thief smashed her $10,000 violin.

Before that, she was a popular street performer in downtown L.A.

Now, more than $94,000 has been raised on two GoFundMe sites, all because of the officer.

“We saw with our brains, but we listened with our hearts,” the LAPD posted.

    What a beautiful story. She has a lovely voice. I have a feeling we have not seen the end of it either. This will be a great movie someday. Cheers to Officer Frazier.

    @dougwatt, I simply do not have the words to adequately express how much I appreciated that treat– a truly magnificent story of grace and gratitude in a time when we are seeing less and less each day of each such beautiful qualities combined with one of the greatest arias of all time! 

    Grazie, ciao! Jim
