In fact, most of them loved the new, hot Nick Jonas just as much as they’d loved the old, squeaky-clean, Disney Channel Nick Jonas. And among this army of fans was student at University of South Florida, and Twitter user, Deanna Hall. So when she received a text from her father in August 2017 asking “Who is Nick Jonas?” she immediately knew the answer.
She didn’t know why her dad, who was flying First Class on a Delta Airlines airplane, would want to know about some celebrity he had clearly never heard of. But she calmly sent an explanatory text. “A famous singer,” she wrote. “I love him. He was a part of the Jonas Brothers.” Her father then sent her another message. “He is sitting beside me on the plane.”
