SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Though downtown's nightlife was shuttered Saturday amid stay at home orders, a local DJ delivered a night filled with music for locals.

DJ IAMNOEL gave residents in San Diego's high rises a show, performing a brief concert from his balcony.

Video posted to NOEL's Instagram showed the faith-based musician performing to nearby residents who watched, danced, and cheered from their balconies and shared the scene across social media.

"Putting the brief show on was breathtaking," NOEL said. "Everyone was singing the songs and watching all of them in their respective buildings dance and light up was so beautiful. I felt honored to be divinely chosen to do this."

NOEL said seeing how residents in countries like Italy have responded to staying inside inspired him to bring that energy to San Diego.

"I was inspired to put the show together because I wanted to give back in some way," NOEL said. "Other countries around the world inspired me, most especially Italy. Watching them celebrate first responders, frontline people, and healthcare workers was so inspiring."

The musician said he plans to perform from his home every Saturday at 8 p.m., after neighbors celebrate frontline workers during the pandemic by cheering from their homes.
