Rep. John Lewis Dancing Along To Pharrell's 'Happy' Is The OG Black Joy We Need

We're sure Pharrell won't be sending a cease-and-desist order this time.

Representative John Lewis (D-GA) is "Happy," and he's glad to let everyone know it.

Just a few days after it was announced Pharrell Williams sent a cease-and-desist order to President Donald Trump, who played the popular song at a rally, the tune filled the air at a Stacey Abrams campaign event.

The 78-year-old U.S. representative and iconic civil rights activist was in the building. Feeling the song, he decided to bust a move, according to The Huffington Post. The whole thing was caught on tape by CBS News reporter Nancy Cordes. 


The Abrams campaign event was led by none other than Oprah Winfrey, who was in the state for a last-minute grassroots blitz on behalf of the gubernatorial hopeful. 

Pharrell himself made it clear what he thought of Abrams using his track and what he thought of Lewis dancing to it.

"Get it, legend," the artist tweeted on Thursday. 



Rep. John Lewis is happy. Pharrell is happy. We're all happy.
