Hollywood actor Vin Diesel showed the world just how much of an impact rap star Wiz Khalifa‘s “See You Again” had on him by singing a few lyrics at last night’s People’s Choice Awards show.
In honor of late Furious 7 co-star Paul Walker, Diesel busted out a few lyrics from Wiz’s hit 2015 song.
Vin Diesel fought back tears as he accepted the awards for Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie, for Furious 7. He thought of his late co-star, Paul Walker, who died in a car crash, and said, “When we didn’t want to come back to film when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end. “And now I am standing here with all of you telling me this was your favorite film of the year,” he added. Diesel closed his speech by singing the hit song from Furious 7, “See You Again.” (WBT)
