…is the deal with Ethan Bortnick?
Labeled as a Guinness World Record Musician, this singing youth is the youngest performer ever to headline his own concert tour – one he’ll be bringing to the F.M. Kirby Center on May 30 at 7:30 p.m.
Bortnick was named one of Oprah’s “All Time Smartest, Most Talented Kids,” and will be joined on tour by special guest Damian McGinty of Glee and Celtic Thunder.
At only 13 years old, he has already harnessed the power of music around the world to raise more than $30 million for charity. He performs a range of music that appeals to people of all ages, from The Beatles to Elton John to Broadway, Chopin to Neil Diamond, and everything in between.
