Stephen Amell has been campaigning for weeks now to get Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson elected to start in next Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati, and it was officially announced Sunday, July 5th that Donaldson will be starting at third for the American League. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is that Donaldson did not simply lead all Major League Baseball players in voting but broke the record for most All-Star votes of all time, with his total number of votes coming in at 14,090,188, over three million more than Josh Hamilton’s 2012 all-time single-season record of 11,073,744.

One of the promises he had made was to sing the Canadian national anthem. And so what did Amell do after it was officially revealed that Donaldson was going to be starting on the American League All-Star team? He went to Facebook, as he does, and posted a video of him singing for fans, writing “A promise is a promise!”

However, as a fan of ArrowThe Flash, and musicals in general, Stephen Amell proving that he can sing pretty darn well in the video above makes me only determined to see one thing happen now: an Arrow and The Flash crossover musical episode. Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Rick Cosnett, Carlos Valdes, and, of course, Jesse L. Martin (just listen to “Seasons of Love” or “I’ll Cover You” from Rent) have all proven they can sing, and I’m sure that the rest of the Arrow and Flash casts can carry a tune (also, bonus points if Victor Garber is somehow in the episode).

Fans have been wanting a musical episode for a while now, and although talk of one has maybe died down a little bit, with this video, the fiery passion inside them will be reignited. It needs to happens. Please, make it happen, Arrow and Flash writers.

O’ Canada. A promise is a promise! Congratulations to Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays!!
