Get Lit x Kelly Clarkson Show

May 16, 2022

This week, Get Lit founder Diane Luby Lane appeared on the Kelly Clarkson show with student poets Sierra Leone and Jason to demonstrate the power of the poetic voice.  After talking with Diane about the Get Lit model and the poetic new wave of spoken word, Kelly shared the ways poetry has influenced her life as a singer/songwriter.

Jason and Sierra Leone then read their own original poetry and brought Kelly Clarkson to tears.

You can watch the video on NBC here, or Kelly's official Youtube channel here.

Here's an excerpt from Kelly Clarkson's official recap:

Kelly couldn't help but get emotional during a powerful poetry reading by "Get Lit" participants Sierra Leone and Jason. "Get Lit" is a Los Angeles-based education nonprofit revolutionizing how students see, connect and engage with the art of poetry.

Watch till the end for a huge surprise for "Get Lit!"
