WATCH: John Kerry Brings James Taylor To Paris To Sing ‘You’ve Got A Friend’

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry promised a “big hug for Paris” before he showed up in France to show support after the attacks the killed 17 last week, and he delivered one on Friday in the form of folk-rock legend James Taylor.

Taylor played “You’ve Got a Friend” to an audience at city hall in Paris, peppering the old tune with French, as Kerry looked on.

“My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time,” Kerry said on Thursday.
