The popular superhero series on The CW is rather young in comparison to “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”, “Scrubs”, “How I Met Your Mother” and “Community”, but with so much singing talent on the cast “The Flash” seems primed to join this group to give its fans a musical episode.
Check out a few samples of “The Flash” cast serenading, belting it out, crooning and generally hitting all the right notes.
Here’s Grant Gustin the fast one himself (Barry Allen) before “Glee” at an open mic night in Chicago slaying the crowd with his version of “Run Away With Me” from “The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown”.
If this gospel version of the “Ballad of Serenity” by Jesse L Martin, Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes doesn’t convince you how musical these guys are … nothing will. Plus, how awesome was “Firefly”?
Bonus Gustin showing up Danielle Panabake in a drunk karaoke version of “Summer Nights”. Yes, he’s fast and he can sing.
Rick Cosnett who plays Eddie Thawne makes a fans life at a “The Vampire Diaries” event in Dallas.
Wentworth Miller who plays Captain Cold on “Legends of Tomorrow” and “The Flash” shows off his golden tones with the Princeton Tigertones a capella group.
Victor Garber who plays Dr. Martin Stein in “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” does an emotional cover of Elton John’s “The Last Song”.
Jesse L. Martin who plays Joe West treats Rosie O’Donnell to an excerpt from “I’ll Cover You” from “Rent”.
U-M alumnus and lead vocalist for New York based funk band Tha Los, Carlos Valdes plays Cisco Ramon on “The Flash”.
The musical episode would have crossover potential with “Supergirl” and “Glee” actress Melissa Benoist. Here she is singing “La Vie En Rose” at a music and comedy show in Modesto, California.
Is “The Flash” the most likely the next show to get a musical episode? Sound off in the comments or Tweet me your thoughts @GeorgeJFox.
