Exactly how well does it pay to have the voice of an angel? Well, that depends on a number of things, not the least of which being how smart you are with your money once you’ve earned it. While nearly everyone knows who Katy Perry and Beyonce are, most of us don’t know what they’re worth, we just assume, “eh, they’re loaded” (and that’s mostly right), but here’s how much the 25 Richest Singers Of All Time are worth.
This singer/songwriter, actress, mother, judge of The Voice, and makeup free activist is worth a reported $130 Million.
Adele has 15 Grammys, and honestly, she’s earned every single one of them as someone who is so immensely talented they can captivate an entire audience with just their voice, no fancy props or dancing required. She’s worth an estimated $125 Million USD.
Michael Bublé, singer, songwriter, father, winner of four Grammys, and possibly the sweetest crooner since ol’ blue eyes himself is worth an estimated $150 Million USD.
Janet Jackson, winner of 7 Grammys, sister of Micheal Jackson, and as of early 2017, proud mother to a tiny baby boy named Eissa Al Manna, is worth $150 Million USD.
Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, this singer was raised in Barbados and released her first song “Pon de Replay” in 2005. Since then she’s amassed a net worth of $230 million USD. Apparently being a good girl gone bad pays decently.
