He did it. P.K. Subban got Canada to sing for sick children.

The Montreal Canadiens assistant captain posted a video compilation from the people who responded to his #CanadaCarols challenge: sing Jingle Bells to cheer up kids confined to hospitals during the holidays.

Watch it below.

The campaign began last week, and got widespread attention when Subban challenged Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to film himself singing the holiday classic.

Trudeau delivered, as did many more Canadians.

Earlier this year, Subban's foundation pledged $10 million to the Montreal Children's, and the new hospital named its atrium in his honour.

However, the Habs' assistant captain promised that his involvement would go beyond just the financial. 

Subban's foundation teamed up with Air Canada and launched the #CanadaCarols call-out, also encouraging participants to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network.

A compilation of some of the submissions will be screened for kids in several Canadian children's hospitals on Wednesday.
