Tiny kid with big talent: Ethan BortnikMay 20th, 2009 - 11:18 pm ICT by GD
The 8 year-old musical prodigy, Ethnan Bortik, who seems to be on a roll ever since his fingers touched the first piano keys, shows no signs of slowing down. The latest in the ever-growing list of feathers on his cap, is his fourth appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The show will be a part of the series of last shows before the T.V’s favorite funnyman takes a bow from the show that had become a household name and the toast of the late-night chat-show circuit. Little Ethan is expected to play a specially composed number dedicated to Jay, on the show which was aired on the NBC yesterday.
The little man with the big talent, Ethan’s list of achievements never seems to run out. The four appearances on the Jay Leno show alone kept aside,he has appeared on shows of the likes of Oprah, Martha Stewart,Good Morning America, besides being in numerous other national as well as in international T.V shows. He has a star-studded performance record having performed with Reba McEntire, Josh Groban,Natalie Cole,Gloria Gaynor and Patti Labelle to name a few. From leading symphony orchestra to opening for Nelly Furtado’s tour in the Hard Rock Arena, his versatility is absolutely amazing even without taking into account his astonishing age.
The incredibly talented wonder-kid has not only performed at numerous televised events, but is equally at ease when performing before huge crowds with live audience on several occasions. With a photographic memory for anything musical, he can play up to 200 songs from memory, and many more just by listening to it.
Having composed over 30 musical pieces that are in the process of being published, he is comfortable playing everything from Jazz to Classical to Pop and Folk and even songs for his own age group if he feels like it!
