The Rising Phoenix Takes the Stage

Sauk Valley Community College will host a spoken word poetry event with Kyla Lacey, aka The Rising Phoenix, Monday, February 11 at 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Mathis Theatre.

The Rising Phoenix, of Orlando, Florida, began writing poetry in 5th grade. From then on her poetry has grown into captivating performances that makes audiences hang on every word. Her inspiration comes from her own triumphs and tragedies with a mix of her good humored personality.

She is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and has released two CDs “AWay with Words” and “Lady Brings the Blues.”
