Céline Dion tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2019 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (May 21) that Dion is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2021 and April 2022, a nearly $30 million lead over her 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 has an estimated net worth of $185 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Dion Burger” chain) in Quebec City, a Football Team (the “Repentigny Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdion - Quebec), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Céline) and a fashion line called “Céline Dion Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Céline fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
