Pentatonix Aims to Share Faith through Music

Grammy Award-winning acapella group Pentatonix recently told The Christian Post that the group wants to share their faith with the world through their music.

The group is not labeled a Christian group, but they are widely known for their Christmas music.

According to The Christian Post, at the recent movie premiere of “Journey to Bethlehem,” Pentatonix members Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee said they likened their experience to the Old Testament story of Daniel.

“He goes into the culture, and he gets to infiltrate, but he also gets to stay true to the true God.”

By being “a light in culture,” Olusola added, the singers can “show people how beautiful and joyous and cool the Gospel is. I think there’s a lot of stigma around the Gospel; that ‘it’s just not for me,’ ‘it can’t be.’ But actually, Jesus invites every single person into a relationship.”

He said he hopes their music helps people “feel Jesus through us.”

“The lyrics, the hope, the message, the spirituality that’s in the songs, it resonates and hits the heart in a way that sometimes another medium can’t,” he told The Christian Post.

Sallee said the group is intentional about “spreading God’s love.”

“It’s all about trusting the Holy Spirit … and yourself just to know that God’s called you in your purpose. He’s called you here. We talk about this all the time: walk in your purpose, walk in what God has called you to do, … lean on iron sharpening iron, lean on brothers and sisters, and really trust in God because His record is perfect. He’s been so good in my life.”

Pentatonix is currently on its “The Most Wonderful Tour Of The Year,” which features its Christmas hits. They are also scheduled to perform at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 23.
