He said he believed the election marked a "renewal of the common values between France and the United States".

Senechal rose to fame on social media during the France's first coronavirus lockdown after uploading clips of himself singing to his neighbours.

Back then, he was singing every night. Now that France is in lockdown again, he's limiting the performances to Monday and Fridays. 

On Monday night, he also sang the romantic 'E lucevan le stelle' (And the Stars were Shining), from Puccini's opera Tosca, as a gesture of hope to the US as it battles the coronavirus pandemic.

The US has confirmed over 10 million coronavirus cases, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
