Kazual, a quartet of singing brothers that appeared on Season 3 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” is bringing its blend of R&B and hip hop to Northwest Missouri State University.

Northwest’s Student Activities Council is sponsoring the performance set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12. The concert is free and open to the public.

In addition to “America’s Got Talent,” the group has appeared on “The Maury Show” and “Showtime at The Apollo.” They’ve opened for Destiny’s Child and Nelly among other popular music artists.
