DJ D-Nice Hosts Instagram LIVE Virtual Party, Now Boasts 2.1m Followers

First off let's say --Thank you D-Nice for THE GREATEST PARTY IN THE WORLD! He spoke to "CBS This Morning" about the amazing outpouring of appreciation.

As Americans are being forced to stay home in virtually every community across the United States due to the coronavirus outbreak, DJ D-Nice is bringing a dance party to everyone. He is hosting a daily event he calls “Homeschool at Club Quarantine.” On Sunday, more than 160,000 people watched his Instagram Live.

The lists of celebrities joining in was impressive. D-Nice played music from the Old School Sunday Night Slow Jams to dance music from Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam to Shannon, who was being featured on TV One's UNSUNG, to a set of the Minneapolis Sound with Sheila E., Alexander O'Neal, and The Time. When Lionel Richie and Stephanie Mills joined in on Instagram, he played a set of their music.

An impressive list that included: Spike Lee, Maxwell, Deon Cole, Halle Berry, Tyrese, Viola Davis, Tisha Campbell, Chuck D, Holly Robinson Peete, Quincy Jones, Mark Wahlberg, Vanessa Williams, Questlove, Amy Schumer, and many, many more were not aware of. On Saturday the list included Oprah, Joe Biden, Dave Chappelle, Will Packer, Drake, Mary J. Blige, and Michelle Obama.

He played The Jackson's Can You Feel It as an uplifting treat that was very timely. He ended the night with Optimistic from Sounds of Blackness and then a classic from Jeffrey Osborne and LTD.

D-Nice had 200,000 followers last week, but his Instagram followers are now at 1.3 million and counting... The Homeschool Quarantine Party will continue on a daily basis for now.
