Afrizo is comprised of five Daystar University students who sing high-energy songs in several dialects from the African continent. This concert at Cedar Valley Church is one of several stops on Afrizo’s U.S. tour. The group will be traveling through several states to spread the mission and impact of Daystar University and to raise money for fellow students who need financial assistance.
