A woman’s incredible voice transformed a Los Angeles train station into an opera house last week.
Dressed in a long skirt, pulling a cart and holding several bags, the woman delivered a sensational rendition of a famous Puccini aria.
The video of the unidentified woman was posted to Twitter by the Los Angeles Police Department Thursday evening.
“4 million people call LA home. 4 million stories. 4 million voices…” the caption read.
“Sometimes you just have to stop and listen to one, to hear something beautiful.”

The video has since gone viral, with over 250,000 views so far, and with many people replying to the original tweet.
I’ve seen her for years on the Metro. I heard her once singing “Ave Maria” and thought it was a radio at first. Everyone has a story…this woman does too. I don’t know why she’s been homeless all these years, but she’s a human being…that’s all that matters

I had notice this lady several times while riding Los Angeles Metro train and seeing her feeding birds on the streets. Never in a million years I would had imaging she has such beautiful voice…

Other commentators were quick to dismiss the video, saying it was ‘fake.
“Sadly that looks like a fake set up,” one person commented. “Beautiful voice, nice thought behind it, but with her clean clothes, skin, and her pigtails and the perfectly placed rips in her bag etcetera, it just looks like a fake.”
Many were tagging the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in the hopes of launching the woman into discovery, but the woman’s identity stills remains a mystery.
