Avi Kaplan has decided to step back from Pentatonix for a while. He says “If you have watched, know that this is exactly what I would have said in the video, if filming it wasn’t one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to do,”
He adds, “I’ve struggled with this decision a lot. It has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life. Before I explain why, I want you all to know that the past 6 years have been the most unbelievable years of my life. The things we’ve accomplished, the places we’ve seen, the people we’ve touched with our music… It surpasses anything that I could have ever dreamed up for my life.
He decided to step back from the froup to focus on family and friends, and to be there for them when they need him. He adds that he will continue a career in music, and he will always lift up others through music.
