Michelle Obama partners up with DJ D-Nice for a "Couch Party" Online Event with millions of people on self-quarantine due to the Coronavirus pandemic.


DJ D-Nice's "Club Quarantine" parties have been helping people find joy during their bout in self-isolation. The New Yorker's Saturday night dance party had 105,000 viewers at one point, and included former First Lady Michelle Obama. 

Michelle Obama shared her quarantine schedule with Ellen DeGeneres.

Now, the two join forces for another "Couch Party," this time for a substantial voting initiative this week. D-Nice announced the next episode of "Club Quarantine," which will be titled "Couch Party: A Voter Registration Live Set." It will be a collaboration with Obama's voter registration initiative. 

Taking place on Wednesday, March 25 at 6:30 PM ET, the DJ will be playing a set while volunteers across the country "text eligible voters to help them register to vote."



Aside from the online initiative, Michelle Obama offered tips on how people can continue to show care for each other amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She encouraged people to show they care by picking up groceries for older individuals, donating to restaurants who offer free meals to frontliners, or making a donation to local food banks. 

She also reminded people that they aren't alone, and that as people continue to self-isolate, they are trying to figure things out together. 

“Whatever you’re going through right now, I want you to know you aren’t alone. Even as we practice social distancing, this new normal is something we are figuring out together.”



Aside from giving advice to others, Michelle Obama shared her quarantine schedule with Ellen DeGeneres. She revealed that her two daughters are now home from their respective colleges, as they've shifted to online classes. 


Although she acknowledged that she and former president Barack Obama continue to have conference calls and their girls are studying in their rooms, they insert a bit of fun in between.

"We're just trying to keep a routine going, but we also have a little Netflix and chilling happening."

Millions around the world join the Obama family in self-isolation, as they try to curb the spread of COVID-19. Governments in countries worldwide have imposed curfews and social distancing measures to keep people indoors.
