How sweet. During a recent interview, Vin Diesel stopped for a moment to sing ‘See You Again,’ the touching ‘Furious 7’ tribute song that is dedicated to the late Paul Walker.
Vin Diesel, 47, will never let the memory of his close friend, Paul Walker, fade. While promoting their final film together, Furious 7, the actor broke out into song to point out the heartwarming lyrics to “See You Again.” The song, performed by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, is featured on the film’s soundtrack as send-off to Paul from the franchise.

This will really pull at your heart strings — especially if you are a fan of Vin, Paul, and the Furious franchise.
At the very beginning of an interview to talk about Furious 7, Vin was asked to start with a song. He pulls out his phone and scrolls through it until he finds “See You Again” from the soundtrack and then hits play only to sing along for the camera.
Although Vin is smiling through the lyrics, the song is actually an emotionally charged tribute to his longtime friend “Pablo” — also known as Paul Walker. The song is beautiful, and it’s clear that it’s one of Vin’s personal favorites these days.
Both Vin and Paul are featured heavily in the music video for the song, which is mostly a compilation of shots from all seven films from the Furious franchise. However, it’s the very end of the video that brings the tears, as Vin and Paul take “one last ride” together down the highway, with Paul’s car getting off at an exit as Vin’s car drives on without him.
