DETROIT — Ethan Bortnick, the 11-year-old musical sensation who has headlined more than 100 live shows across the globe, is stopping by the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center Sunday.
He’ll be there to entertain — and raise money for a good cause.
Tickets are available at Ethantickets.com, with a portion of ticket sales and merchandise sales, along with collected donations, going to Beaumont Children’s Hospital, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Joining Bortnick on stage will be The KIDZ BOP Kids, Billboard’s No. 1 Kids’ Artists of 2010 and 2011.
Bortnick was recently certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as The World’s Youngest Solo Musician to Headline his own Tour. The new summer tour was inspired by his latest single, “It’s All About Music,” which will be available as a CD single with a companion video for purchase at shows.
“The show highlights Ethan’s extraordinary musical talents and will guarantee to have kids and the entire family on their feet singing and dancing,” organizers said in a press release.
The Bortnick family knows first-hand how children’s hospitals make miracles happen: Ethan’s younger brother Nathan had heart surgery at Miami Children’s Hospital as a newborn and is now a healthy toddler.
Since then, Ethan and his family have worked tirelessly to raise money for children’s hospitals. It is estimated that Ethan’s philanthropic efforts have helped raise more than $30 million for various charities, including Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which purchases equipment, supports research and training.
