Gilles Vigneault tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 20) that Vigneault is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $30 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-poet-author has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Vigneault Burger” chain) in Quebec City, a Football Team (the “Natashquan Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervigneault - Quebec), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gilles) and a fashion line called “Gilles Vigneault Seduction”.

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