Anything is Possible

Melanie Votaw recently interviewed Ethan Bortnick, the young star of “Anything is Possible,” an uplifting story of hope and family, featuring songs written and performed by Bortnick himself. Read her interview with this wonderful young star here.

To celebrate the Sept. 24 release of the DVD, we’re giving away a copy right here, right now!

Anything is PossibleTHE DVD: “Anything is Possible” stars Ethan Bortnick as Nathan, a ten-year-old boy who’s devastated when his mom is reported missing while serving on an overseas Army rescue mission. Feeling scared and alone, Nathan runs away from home only to find shelter from the city streets at a local orphanage.

There, Nathan’s incredible talent at the piano is discovered, and he becomes the star attraction at a benefit concert to raise money for the orphanage. Inspired by the kindness of the people he met on his journey, Nathan holds on to the belief that his mom will come home and his family will be reunited.

  3. Hi Ethan,

    I remember watching you when you were a tiny little boy. I love your song “Arctic Jazz” and enjoyed watching you with Ben Folds and your interview with Quincy Jones.

    I’ve been looking forward to the release of this movie since you first posted about the fun you were having while making the music.
    You are one special young man!

    I can’t wait to see your movie and share with everyone. Congratulations, Ethan!
