While the world is cocooned up in their homes, many of them on lockdown, DJ D-Nice has been working to bring people together through a free concert!
Some of the special guests on his Saturday offering were Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Ava Duvernary and Janet Jackson. Black politicians like Mayor Ras Baraka (NWK), Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (ATL), Public Advocate Juumane Williams (NYC) from Generation X jumped the “Homeschoolin’: Social Distancing Dance Party” and danced with their constituents. However, when former Vice President Joe Biden and then Senator Bernie Sanders popped in… the crowd went wild.
Perhaps, they were pandering to the over 100K people jamming in harmony to the BDP alum’s spinning of James Brown and Rihanna hottest tunes.
Whatever the reason, it proved once again the power that Hip-Hop yields.
Let’s make sure we take that power to the voting booths or the absentee ballots this November… regardless of who the candidate is.
A partial list of others in the party are as follows:
Michelle Obama, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Janet Jackson, Queen Latifah, Oprah Winfrey, DJ Khaled, Mark Zuckerberg, Mike Tyson, Stevie Wonder, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Ava Duvernay, Gayle King, Lenny Kravitz, Rihanna, A-Rod, J-Lo, Kevin Hart, Elizabeth Warren, Tiffany Haddish, Charlamagne tha God, Toni Braxton, Usher Raymond, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Quincy Jones, Nia Long, Snoop Dog, Janelle Monae, Maxwell, Dr. Jay, Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Taraji P.

The attendees show how diverse the crowd was, ranging from musicians, politicians, and influencers. Sororities, Fraternities, HBCUs and just all-around music lovers flooded the comment sections with stars to salute the health care workers still looking out for those affected by the COVID-19 disease that has afflicted the world.
He also did several tributes to Stevie, Janet, Patti, and Chaka. However, it was a double dose tribute to Kenny Rogers that touched many. Rogers transitioned earlier in the day.
There will also be another one that raises money for those hurting during this time. Rap music and those who love will heal the world… best believe it.
