After this list I would like to comment on this. Singing is art!! Good singer must not quit his/her practice. This is full time job which pays a lot money and huge following of people if someone good in music. Above list is all about world best and richest singers of the world (This list updated in 2015).

Singing career salary

If you are passionate about music and have a really mesmerizing voice then I would suggest you to opt for singing as your career. Many prominent celebrities started off their careers simply by singing at small events, clubs, high school bands etc.  This is a meaningful profession by which you can earn millions of dollars (Off course once you get famous).

It has been estimated by various statisticians that a normal singer earns approximately $40,000 per year and if by chance, you get popular just like the famous Pink, Rihanna, Jay Z, Akon then you are most likely to make millions of dollars per month! Yes I’m so not kidding about this. It has been reported that the average hourly wage of a singer/musician is approximately 23.5 dollars. And for the top ones it’s like 65.4 $ per hour. This clearly shows that it’s a really good profession and would help in earning loads of cash.

There are many options available for you in the music world. You can either become a person singing at orchestras and clubs or you can become a free lancer music artist and earn on websites by making gigs. Furthermore you can also earn by becoming a record artist. I-e getting registered to a record company for example Atlanta records and then making money out of it. Famous people like Pink started her career as record artist at LaFace records and today I’m sure that everybody with a good taste in music has listened to her music.
