Dave Clark tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2016 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (May 23) that Clark is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between April 2018 and April 2019, 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 British singer-songwriter-musician 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 Clark Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderclark - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dave) and a fashion line called “Dave Clark Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Dave fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
