Why A Show For Phoenix?

Phoenix is one of the twin sons of acclaimed national spoken word artist, Geovanni Marcel. His twin brother is Malachi! Phoenix was born with TETRALOGY OF FALLOT. Tetralogy (teh-TRAL-o-je) of Fallot (fah-LO) is a rare and complex congenital heart defect. Tetrology of Fallot is repaired with open-heart surgery either soon after birth or later in infancy. Phoenix is a soldier! He has already had his first open-heart surgical procedure! Repairing the defects can greatly improve his health and quality of life. ALL proceeds of this event will go towards his fund. Thank you in advance for attending the show and donating to help Phoenix! If you will be out of town for the entire Thanksgiving weekend, please consider donating your ticket price to the fund. PHOENIX FEST WILL BE THE BEST SPOKEN WORD AND SOUL MUSIC EVENT OF THE YEAR!
