Joss Whedon donated “substantial” amount to Jessie L. Martin’s Kickstarter campaign for a musical short film, The Letter Carrier, and Jesse L. Martin repaid him by singing a gospel version of “The Ballad of Serenity.” And you know what? It’s fucking fantastic.

It really works on two levels, too! It’s a nice way to say thank you, and now I want to donate to the Kickstarter.

And now I’m going to listen on repeat until I weep myself into a coma.

I quit the Flash several weeks ago, but if they made a musical episode, I would leap the hell back in just to listen to Martin sing. The guy’s gotta voice that hits me in my soul parts.
