Columbus, OH - 7/11/2012

Ethan Bortnick, the 11-year-old musical sensation who has headlined more than 100 live shows across the globe and shared the stage with legendary artists such as Beyoncé, Reba McEntire and Natalie Cole, is partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on his “It’s All About Music” tour this summer. Joining Ethan on tour are special guests, The KIDZ BOP Kids, Billboard’s No. 1 Kids’ Artists of 2010 and 2011.

The 22-city national tour will arrive in Columbus on Saturday, July 28. Tickets are available at Ethantickets.com. A portion of ticket sales and merchandise sales, along with collected donations, will go to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, 77 South High Street, 43215.

Ethan 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 Ethan’s latest single, “It’s All About Music,” which will be available as a CD single with a companion video for purchase at shows. Ethan’s dynamic set features his unique take on several rock and pop classics as well as original material. The show highlights Ethan’s extraordinary musical talents and will guarantee to have kids and the entire family on their feet singing and dancing.

The Bortnick family knows first-hand how children’s hospitals make miracles happen. Ethan’s younger brother Nathan had heart surgery (in Miami) 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.

Ethan is also the host of his own popular web series on KIDZBOP.com, “The Ethan Show.” All new clips highlighting his adventures of the tour will debut later this summer.
