Despite the country basically getting shut down because of the coronavirus, DJ D-Nice is keeping the party going. The celebrity DJ, who has been hosting live Instagram parties during the COVID-19 outbreak, has another creative gig planned for Wednesday night.
"Ready for another party?" he wrote on Instagram. "Excited to team up with @MichelleObama's @WhenWeAllVote this Wed. Starting at 6:30pm ET on IG Live to play a set while volunteers across the country text eligible voters to help them register to vote."

When We All Vote is Michelle Obama's nonprofit voting initiative which comes up with creative ways to get people to register to vote. The initiative includes videos and programs to encourage people to make their voices heard at the ballot box.
"If you let your frustration get the best of you, and you silence yourself on Election Day, the truth is there are a lot of people who are still going to speak up. If you stay home, others are still going to make their voice heard at the polls — and you probably won’t like what they have to say," Obama told Blavity in 2018. "Chances are that they probably see things differently than you do. They might not understand your lives or the kinds of challenges you’re dealing with. They might not have any problem leaving you and your family behind. So, when you don’t vote, what you’re really doing is letting somebody else take power over your life."
Last week, D-Nice hosted his Instagram event, Homeschoolin’: Social Distancing Dance Party, an online affair.
“Sitting at home during this quarantine, I started to feel empty,” he told The New York Times. “There is nothing like playing the music and feeling the music.”
“I can’t believe that I started the Home School social distancing dance party just four days ago and it’s become a place for us to virtually dance together and stay connected,” the DJ wrote on Instagram. “From my kitchen, I’m able to send positive vibrations to each of you. Thank you for rocking with me. Thank you to all of the artists that popped in to show love.”
