AVI KAPLAN IS LEAVING PENTATONIX
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.
