In 2013 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (May 25) that Lavoie is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between April 2015 and April 2016, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The singer-songwriter-pianist has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lavoie Burger” chain) in Quebec City, a Football Team (the “Dunrea Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlavoie - Quebec), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Daniel) and a fashion line called “Daniel Lavoie Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Daniel fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
