Ethan performs with passion and heart – his fingers fly across the piano keys in “Minute Waltz,” and the audience rocks out to “Rock Around the Clock,” claps to the beat of “Lean On Me,” and participates in a very enthusiastic sing-along of “Crocodile Rock.” He’s joined by special guests Damian McGinty of Glee and Celtic Thunder and Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit, who add even more color to the musical rainbow on stage. You will get chills when you hear “The Earth Song,” and feel the power of music when Ethan performs an emotional and inspiring rendition of “We Are the World.”
