Organizers say the goal of the nearly three-hour event — which starts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday — from Obama's nonpartisan organization, When We All Vote, is for volunteers to text 50,000 eligible voters.

"As the country’s reality continues to change in the wake of the coronavirus’ ongoing impact on individuals and communities, When We All Vote is committed to exploring innovative and safe ways to reach voters where they are — at home," the group said in a statement.

DJ D-Nice launched his "Homeschool at Club Quarantine" dance parties on Instagram Live last week to encourage social distancing during the pandemic.

The celebrity DJ's connection to the Obamas goes back to at least 2016, when he served up music at a White House party hosted by then-President Obama and his wife.

Earlier this month, Michelle Obama canceled a planned When We All Vote kickoff rally in Detroit due to coronavirus fears. Obama launched the organization in 2018 with the aim of promoting voter participation. She signed on a number of celebrities to serve as fellow co-chairs for the effort, including "Hamilton's" Lin-Manuel Miranda, country music stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and singer Janelle Monae.
