Wilshire/Normandie is one of only two heavy rail subway stations in the system not served by the Red Line. In late 2019, a then unknown European-born woman with the name Emily Zamourka was captured on videophone singing opera by local police at the station, of which video went viral due to the perceived talent of her.
