Rep. Keith Ellison could not contain his musical side when he heard the news that the Minneapolis City Council had approved the $15 minimum wage.
"That's such good news, I had to sing a song to celebrate," he tweeted, along with his guitar rendition of the song "Money" by Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford, famously covered by the Beatles.
Ellison lost his bid for Democratic National Committee chairman in February to Tom Perez, who appointed him Deputy Chair.
"You gotta get paid, y'all," Ellison sang.
"We're gonna fight here in Washington. You guys are fighting there in Minneapolis. We're fighting all over the country so the American people can get a raise," he said.
