With big choruses, dynamic songs, and a family-friendly vibe, Jump5 debuted on the Christian pop scene in 2001. The five teenagers weren't even old enough to drive, and their youthful enthusiasm and na´ve sensibilities made them a parent-friendly alternative to the increasingly sex-driven sounds of other teen pop acts. The group was not one of the studio-made pop bands that had been dominating mainstream radio since the late '90s. Instead, their story began when brother and sister Brandon and Brittany Hargest joined the same dance class as Lesley Moore. The three were only toddlers at the time, but their similar interests and talents turned them into fast friends. Over the subsequent years, Libby Hodges and Chris Fedun joined the trio and they decided to try their hands at pop music.
