Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man behind Broadway hit musical "Hamilton," spent Wednesday on Capitol Hill lobbying members of Congress to increase funding for the $150 million National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities program.

Miranda — working with the National Humanities Alliance and Americans for the Arts — met with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle like New York's Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Rep. Adriano Espaillat, and Rep. Elise Stefanik, as well as California Rep. Maxine Waters, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

The American composer, lyricist, playwright, and actor documented his experiences on social media, including singing show tunes on the subway system connecting the U.S. Capitol to the House and Senate office buildings.

Miranda was in Washington, D.C., to accept the U.S. Capitol Historical Society's 2017 Freedom Award for sparking interest in American history through "Hamilton."
