Watch vin diesel fulfill his lifelong dream of singing with a gospel choir

Vin Diesel’s love for singing is well-documented by now, between his emotional renditions of “See You Again” honoring Paul Walker and his sweet karaoke sessions of Maroon 5 and Tove Lo jams. But there was one musical mission still left on Vin’s bucket list: Singing with a church choir.

While shooting xXx: The Return of Xander Cage in Toronto last week, though, Vin finally achieved his lifelong dream by performing “Oh Happy Day” with the choir Sharon Riley & Faith Chorale.

In a Facebook video posted by Trinity Lewis, Vin explains that he was compelled to include a choir in the upcoming action sequel after a day filming inside a church with xXx co-star Samuel L. Jackson.

“A dream of mine always has been to have the confidence to sing in a choir,” he reveals in the vid, before breaking into the song. Confidence clearly isn’t a problem for Vin anymore, though — he belts out the lead vocals and pounds his fist on a pulpit as the choir backs him and tries to stifle their laughter. OK, so it’s not what you’d call “flawless,” but dammit if it isn’t spirited as hell.

Vin Diesel’s dream of singing with a gospel choir comes true… #xXx #srfc #vindiesel
