Sharing more about his passion for music, the 53-year-old actor said: “I acted in musicals since I was a child and started to seek rapping since the 1980s. However, serious singing is only starting to arise. When I was singing Stay, I remember Mikky (Mikky Ekko – musician, producer) praised it as a very good cover. I found it to be my encouragement”.
According to Vin Diesel, the late star Paul Walker was the one who encouraged him to pursue his passion for music. “When I was in London, I told Pablo (nicknamed by Vin Diesel) that people were anxious to find out that I intended to try music. He said, ‘Never stop singing'”, The actor reminisces about his close colleague.
