Come one, come all to the “Couch Party” of the century!

Recently, DJ D-Nice made headlines for hosting gigantic Instagram dance parties – dubbed “Club Quarantine” – amid the coronavirus pandemic.

While clubs and bars may be closed around the world, the musician — born Derrick Jones — is spreading joy by livestreaming himself turning tables from the comfort of his living room.

Among his thousands of fans is Michelle Obama, who even got her groove on at one of the digital shindigs.

Fast-forward to today, Wednesday, the former first lady and the DJ are teaming up for the next online bash — and everyone is invited!

Starting at 3:30 p.m. PT on D-Nice’s Instagram Live, the two are hosting “Couch Party: A Voter Registration Live Set” in collaboration with When We All Vote, a voter-registration initiative.

While D-Nice is on the ones and twos, volunteers across the globe will text eligible voters to help them register.

Obama added on her Twitter page, “In this tough time, music can comfort us and bring us together. That’s why I can't wait for the @WhenWeAllVote #CouchParty with a featured live set from @djdnice! He’ll keep our volunteers motivated with some tunes as they help register voters.”

When We All Vote was launched in 2018 by co-chairs Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe, Chris Paul, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Mrs. Obama herself to increase participation in every election and to close the race and age voting gap.

In regards to the impact “Club Quarantine” has had on those who may be experiencing loneliness and boredom while social distancing, D-Nice told The Associated Press on Tuesday, “I’ve been in the music industry for a long time, but this was a different kind of experience where it was is more global than just like even making records, like the impact that it’s had on people just through playing great music and allowing people to feel good, feeling connected, during this time where we are all so separated (and) isolated.”

“It’s just magical,” he added.
