Libby Hodges departs from US teen pop group Jump5.
AMERICAN teen pop group Jump5 have announced that Libby Hodges will be
departing the group. In a statement on the group's website Libby said,
"I have decided to step out of Jump5. I can't tell you what a hard
decision this has been. The hardest of my short life. There's no juicy
gossip to have. We are all still really good friends and they have
been nothing but SOOOO sweet to me. We are still supporting each other
100%. It's simply that I want to take a deep breath and see what
exactly God wants me to do at this point in my life. This has not been
a quick or easy decision but I have prayed about it for a long time.
I'm actually going back to my old high school at home! You should have
seen me the first day (yesterday)...nervous like a Kindergartener.
Then today, Chris showed up and gave me a hug. Whoa! Is he great or
what? I can't wait to see who God brings as a new member to Jump5. I
know they'll be awesome and you'll welcome them with open arms. I know
that Jump5 will succeed because I truly believe God WILL be in it." The opinions expressed in this article are
