FLORENCE — Florence High School senior Ethan Sak is now a member of an exclusive club — those breaking into Billboard's Top 40.

Sak recently made Billboard's Top 40 Pop Indicator Chart at number 39.

Sak wrote, composed, arranged and produced the hit single, "Make My Heart Go."

The accompanying music video is expected out next week on YouTube.

Sak's single has crossed 100,000 streams on Spotify.

Sak, 17, plays piano/keyboard and guitar and toured January and February along the East Coast performing and promoting his music.

"I love traveling and doing music and I've also enjoyed the marketing and promotion aspect of the business," said Sak, whose musical interests and talent was inspired through the Florence Academy of Fine Arts at his school.

He will spend his senior year as a virtual school student at Florence High School to allow for traveling with his music.

Sak plans to release his first EP later this summer, in hopes of getting signed to a record label soon.

"I've had some good things happen so far and I'm hoping for the label next, and a few Grammys by the end of my career," he said.
