DJ D-Nice to host virtual prom for high school seniors
The House Party Prom will take place on May 7 from 8 to 10 pm ET.
DJ D-Nice has brought joy to the lives of so many people with his viral quarantine parties. He is now planning to bring some of that same joy to teens across the country who won’t be able to attend their physical prom this year due to COVID-19.
D-Nice is teaming up with the social app Houseparty to throw a virtual prom for the Class of 2020. The House Party Prom will take place from 8 to 10 pm ET on May 7.
According to AJC, the teens can choose their musical theme, take prom photos and dance all from the safety of their own homes.
Before starting “Club Quarantine,” D-Nice started his career as a member of Boogie Down Productions alongside KRS-One, Lee Smith and the late Scott La Rock. He soon went solo and dropped albums such as To Tha Rescue and Call Me D-Nice.
Back in March, he came up with the idea to play music on Instagram Live for some friends and a few hundred people. As he continued to host the parties, he noticed that his numbers on Live began to grow tremendously. Everyone from Diddy to Michelle Obama made appearances at “Club Quarantine.”
Once the pandemic ends, he wants to be able to take his parties across the country. He has cities such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Atlanta in mind.
“Once we’re able to be able to be together again, I want to pick three cities to actually do a ‘Club Quarantine’ party live,” he told Rolling Stone last month. “Play that same vibe and celebrate with the same people we’ve been celebrating with virtually. Just to be able to see them face-to-face, play that music and feel that bass, that’s the ultimate goal that I have.”
Congrats to DJ D-Nice on all of his accomplishments.
