"She's an amazing singer," one Metro rider told KTLA on Friday. "I've never seen her, but it's nice to add a little art and beauty to the train."

"It doesn't surprise me. Everyone comes from somewhere," another Metro rider, Alex Van Mecl, told KTLA. "I think we have to have some sort of compassion when we're riding alongside each other."
