Justin Rizzo was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. His parents, Mike and Anne, and older siblings, Danielle and Jonathan, have a passion for the Lord and for music that Justin shared from an early age. He began leading worship at his local church when he was just 12 years old. In January 2004, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri for an internship at the International House of Prayer. The lifestyle of worship and prayer immediately resonated in Justin’s heart and since that time, he has been involved in full-time worship ministry.
As a songwriter, Justin greatly enjoys the opportunity to create alongside so many talented singers, musicians, and writers. He has released five albums and been featured on multiple compilation projects along with writing and producing two full-length musicals. In addition, he travels extensively to lead worship and speak at conferences and events around the world.
Justin currently lives in Kansas City with his wife, Naomi, and their daughter.
