On March 17 as I was perusing through my Instagram as I often do and noticed one of my favorite DJ’ crush was having a Live and that would be DJ D-Nice. So I popped in his live and was watching him spin on the 1’s & 2’s and people were commenting and he was giving shouts looked like fun and interesting but had log it. The following day I noticed he was back on I stayed a little longer the audience started to increase, he was doing interviews with his celebrity guest which was very nice.
By Friday the audience had gotten enormous over 50k viewers cheering and watching him DJ and virtually dancing to the music (thank goodness he didn’t bring live video to see his viewers even though that would have made some good entertainment.)
By Saturday D-Nice is now the hottest DJ on Instagram and trending all over social media with his virtual party- Club Quarantine was the hottest hashtag around and Generation X was looking forward to the party since Everyone in the US was given a sentence of house arrest so to speak until we get this illness under control. The Rona as it is being called is causing so many people Anxiety, Depression and Anger that people are having difficulty to be positive and optimistic about life. People are seeking an Outlet and are seeking happiness any where they can. D-Nice provided this comfort and healing through Music. As a Psychotherapist, music is a tool that I suggest as a comfort for my clients when they are experiencing moments of either anger or sadness. The music I recommend for my clients is any type they feel Uplift them which they use and it helps.
D-Nice used his impeccable DJ skills as a coping skill for himself to overcome the loneliness of being quarantine home alone however what he did not realize is :
1. How his coping skill would impact others
2. Music and dance therapy is one of the most impactful tools we have because it boosts our mental, physical and spiritual.
On Saturday March 21 history was made with over 100k followers partying for over 9 hours and happy to be apart of the movement people were texting homemade flyers inviting people to his live that evening because of the joy it brought them and wanted others to feel the same. This Quarantine has impacted a whole nation mentally, physically, financially and spiritually and for once everyone is the same and status has been pushed aside and everyone is accepted. Thank you D-Nice for starting a Music Movement that is helping people to Heal Themselves through Happy Memories and Music.
