Dionne Warwick and the O'Jays perform for AARP and Daybreaker's "Tis The Season To Dance" party | News | Live | MN2S

The R&B and soul legends were booked through MN2S for “Tis The Season To Dance”, a virtual event aimed at combating social isolation over the Christmas period.

This Saturday, people from around the world will come together to enjoy a livestream experience put together by Daybreaker, a morning dance movement and wellness community, and AARP, a nonprofit organisation dedicating to empowering the elderly. This “ugly sweater and pants” party is aimed at “inspiring connection, belonging, and self-expression amid the coronavirus pandemic” – and what better way to inspire connection and self-expression than enlist party-starting artists such as Dionne Warwick and The O’Jays for a virtual performance like no other. Expect live performances of “Love Train” and “I Love Music” by The O’Jays, before Dionne Warwick closes the evening with renditions of hits such as “What the World Needs Now.” Be prepared for some festive surprises, including a break-dancing dreidel, a drum circle, and a visit from Santa himself – and don’t forget to dress down in your ugliest Christmas sweater.

RSVP for Tis The Season To Dance now.

“It’s amazing what can happen when you bring a group of people together on a dance floor that’s totally unapologetic and gives you a true sense of freedom—even if that dance floor is in your own bedroom or kitchen.”

Radha Agrawal, Daybreaker CEO

As the pandemic continues to change our way of life across the globe, it’s vital that music continues to play a part in the way that we respond to these unprecedented circumstances. Speaking about the power of music to help those who are currently suffering from social isolation, AARP’s Heather Nawrocki said “music, dance and social connection can play a pivotal role in healthy aging and overall wellbeing […] an intergenerational music and dance event like this provides an opportunity for people to boost their health through physical activity and making connections, even as we are physically distant.” Not only providing a fun-filled respite from the doom and gloom that’s currently prevailing in the cultural consciousness, this fantastic event has proven that virtual live-streamed experiences can successfully replicate the magic of live performance.
