Why Is Avi Kaplan Leaving Pentatonix?

Before revealing his reasons why, he thanked fans for the last six years – and started tearing up. “It’s the best time of my life. All the things we did. Everybody we have touched. I feel blessed and honored.”

One of the things Avi said bothered him was the very overwhelming fast-paced lifestyle he had to endure while with Pentatonix. The hard-working group often pumps out albums at lightning speed, while going on impressive world tours and meeting fans. “It’s too much for me,” he said. “I want to see my family and friends when I want, so it’s very hard.”

Some fans might argue that the group could have simply slowed-down their pace for Avi – however he also said that he didn’t want to hold them back. “I don’t want them to slow down for me.”

He said that he was still going to do music. “I hope y’all understand. I love you. Thanks for all.”
