Vin Diesel

Covers 'Stay W/ Me'

And It's Strangely Enchanting

7/31/2014 6:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Vin Diesel is not exactly known for being a singer ... but the guy just covered Sam Smith's hit "Stay with Me" ... and it's absolutely captivating. 

The action star was doing an interview for his new movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" when Capital FM asked him to belt out a few verses of the song. 

He's not what you call "classically skilled" ... but he hits the high notes, the low notes  -- and brings some passion that not even Simon Cowell could trash. 

In other words ... it's beautiful.

Damn you, Vin Diesel.

Smith was apparently a fan of Diesel's performance, tweeting, "Vin Diesel just covered Stay With Me. Surreal. Thanks man haha."

I am a Vin fan--think he's great. Not a bad singer, but needs to stay away from the high notes.

If he sang the whole thing in his bass tone rather than going falsetto on the tones, he would sound quite nice.

He should try Barry White. He's got a decent low register timbre.
