The offers came pouring in after Diesel uploaded a video of him singing his version of Rihanna's song "Stay" in a bar, reports femalefirst.co.uk. It was his girlfriend Paloma Jimenez's idea to upload the video online.
"Oh, my god! You know what that was? That was an alternative to sending a Valentine's Day card. When my girlfriend saw it, she said, 'You have to give that to your fans!," Nuts magazine quoted Diesel as saying.
"I'd made other videos of me signing on my page before. It was no big deal. When I was singing 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' no one gave a s**t. Then a studio called me and said they wanted me to do a musical," he added.
