Her story has come full circle. On Wednesday night Emily met the LAPD officer who shot the video.
The police department tweeted out a video of the emotional reunion saying “We saw with our brains, but we listened with our hearts. 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.”
According to TMZ Grammy nominated producer Joel Diamond is offering her a recording contract. Diamond has produced 12 albums for singer Engelbert Humperdinck.
A GoFundMe page for Emily has raised over $60,000, the money will help buy her a new violin and find housing.
