Due to the COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, pandemic, schools from kindergarten all the way to college campuses have had to close, causing many institutions to cancel all their upcoming events. Many students have been forced to cancel their plans for important milestones including graduations and prom.
In light of the pandemic, many organizations have teamed up with notable celebrities for special virtual commencement speeches and celebrations. Luckily for the class of 2020, one DJ plans to keep the party going for prom while in quarantine.
DJ D-Nice became an unlikely breakout star during the coronavirus quarantine with his lively sets on Instagram Live garnering thousands of people to party with him virtually. Now the DJ is teaming with the social network platform, Houseparty, to treat the class of 2020 to a virtual prom party to remember.
Houseparty is a new platform with a mission to create the best “face-to-face” interactions for people to connect wherever they are. Teens and tweens alike from around the nation will be able to take part in the virtual event and attend prom free of charge exclusively through the social media platform.
The virtual prom will take place on May 7 at 8 P.M. EST with co-host Zack Bia. DJ D-Nice will have a special setlist for the prom audience and anyone who opens Houseparty at that time can pull it into DJ their own private prom with up to eight friends.
