Pentatonix …. “🎼 A Farewell to Avi …. A Tribute To All …. 🎼 …. “!! 

~~June 3, 2017~~


Avriel Benjamin “Avi” Kaplan announced today (May 12) via an emotional Facebook video that he is leaving Pentatonix. In the video, he is accompanied by the rest of the a capella group, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, and Kevin Olusola, who support his decision in solemn silence.

During his heartfelt goodbye, Avi explains,

“It’s been extremely hard for me to not be able to see my family or friends when I need to or when they need to see me. It’s been hard for me to just escape to nature when I’m feeling overwhelmed or when I just need time for myself.”

Please share this with Pentatonix and your pentaholic friends!

They are all incredible!

A list of many wonderful qualities that Pentatonix members Kirstin, Avi, Kevin, Mitch and Scott all possess with a focus on Avi who is leaving the group. This is a response to his decision to leave the group and I support all of them and truly respect Avi for his decision. He followed his heart and what will truly make him happy and that is admirable. The music is created by Pentatonix and Avi I have purchased it on Itunes but do not own the rights to the pictures or music.

Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah …. “Pentatonix …. “!!


~~November 14, 2016~~ 


I’ve heard this song before.

Events have come together these past days that have brought it to my mind’s forefront.

I’ll never hear it again without the associated memory of Kate McKinnon playing it on Saturday Night Live as the somber way to end the skits about Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency.

Here you have a cover by Pentatonix.

Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, made me aware of this cover today.




Nothing about Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – the original version of the song Cohen recorded for his 1984 album “Various Positions” – leads you to conclude that it would go on to become one of pop music’s most durable compositions.

Not the rinky-dink keyboard tone. Not the singer’s low, dry croak. And certainly not the lyric full of stark biblical imagery.

Yet in the years leading up to Cohen’s death this week at age 82, “Hallelujah” attained the kind of pop-cultural saturation we more commonly associate with songs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, to name one star who quickly mourned Cohen’s passing on social media.

“A spirit and soul beyond compare,” Timberlake tweeted.

A cappella group Pentatonix has dropped the music video for its powerful cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which is featured on the vocal quintet’s new album, A Pentatonix Christmas.

Pentatonix chooses a subtle desert scene for the moving delivery of “Hallelujah.” The song is one of 11 tracks on the group’s latest LP, which was released on October 21.

Watch the new video below.
