Vin Diesel Is Grateful He Was Able to Turn His Year around despite Challenges Amid Quarantine
"Fast & Furious" Vin Diesel took fans down memory lane with details from his childhood and showed his appreciation to his fanbase for their support on Instagram.
Mark Sinclair, best known by his professional name Vin Diesel is one of the top-grossing actors in the world and he's famous for his appearances in "Fast & Furious" movies. The 53-year-old shared details about his childhood on Instagram with a sweet message for fans.
The actor uploaded the post on November 2 and it was a shot of New York's Times Square at night, with the covers of his singles "Feel Like I Do" and "Days Are Gone" on display.

The post was captioned with a lengthy message where the father-of-three disclosed that the picture for his new single "Days Are Gone" was taken the day he saw his first Times Square movie with his father.
While many criticized his musical skills, some found joy in Diesel's music. Perhaps the father-of-three will find fame in this new venture.
From the age of seven, Diesel dreamt of the day his movies would appear on Times Square but he never imagined his songs would. The 53-year-old also thanked fans for being supportive of his dreams. In his words:
"I was able to a year of Quarantine into a year of magic. Gracias. Thank you for always believing in me."
His new single dropped weeks after he released "Feel Like I Do" and like its predecessor, it has a similar pop vibe. Fans who are used to the actor's husky voice in movies will be shocked by his unique vocals on the tracks.
While many criticized his musical skills, some found joy in Diesel's music. Perhaps the father-of-three will find fame in this new venture as he did in movies just as Jamie Foxx and Will Smith have.
Both singles were released by Palm Tree Records. According to the "Bloodshot" star "Days Are Gone" was inspired by "carefree" times, while "Feel Like I Do" is simply a "positive message."
He also stated that his late friend and "Fast & Furious" co-star Paul Walker implored him to start his musical career before his untimely death. While others had criticized Diesel's singing only Walker encouraged him to continue.
The pair did seven "Fast & Furious" movies together before the actor died and today, the franchise is about to get its 10th movie. This upcoming installment meant more emotionally to the father-of-three because it was a promise he made to his late friend.
The "XXX" star revealed that he and Walker had discussed a maximum of 10 movies for the "Fast & Furious" franchise during a 2013 interview and he plans to keep that promise. The 9th film "F9" is set to be released in theaters in 2021.
