Sister girl group Cimorelli have announced that Dani is leaving the band.
Bidding farewell to the band after 10 years, a social media announcement from the girls stated: “It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that Dani is leaving Cimorelli. She had the courage to share with us that she wants to pursue other career paths outside of YouTube and has made the decision to move on from the band.”
“Of course, none of us wanted her to leave but we will always support her and love her no matter where life takes her,” the statement continues. “We wish her well with all her ventures and we hope you guys will too.”
They added, “This has been a very difficult decision for all of us to process and we know it’ll be tough for you guys too but please be kind as we all move forward. The door will always be open for her if she ever wants to return.”
The remaining sisters – Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy and Lauren – will continue as a five-piece. They stated: “We will do our best to move forward and kick butt in our new format and we look forward to sharing many new projects with you all in 2020.”
