61,000 people including Oprah, Amy Schumer and Timbaland joined the March 25 'couch party' co-hosted by DJ D-Nice and Michelle Obama.
With his dance party Instagram livestreams becoming a sensation amidst the worldwide quarantine, Brooklyn DJ D-Nice yesterday (March 25) mixed classic records for a great cause -- with some help from former First Lady Michelle Obama.
D-Nice and Obama turned the evening set into a registration extravaganza, hosting the "couch party" in collaboration with Obama's voter registration organization When We All Vote.
Prior to going live, the initiative announced a goal of reaching 50,000"voters via its texting platform, Outvote. Ultimately, Outvote received text messages from 407,824 eligible voters and helped nearly 13,000 people start or complete the voter registration process, according to a spokesperson for When We All Vote.
