Avi from Pentatonix has decided to leave the group!

After years of huge success and amazing performances, Avi from Pentatonix has decided now is the right time for him to step away from the group entirely.

In a statement on their Facebook page, Avi wrote "I’ve struggled with this decision a lot. It has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life... 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 won't be quitting music entirely however. "I do want you all to know" he wrote "that I’m still going to be doing music and I’m going to be doing it with my whole heart."

Avi also added that he will be finishing all of the currently announced shows with the group before stepping away for good.

Pentatonix won't sound the same!
