How rich is Elton John really?
Elton John is one of the most famous British musicians who, like the Beatles, has achieved great international success. He should be a estimated assets of around 450 million euros own. Nevertheless, he has publicly announced that his two sons will not simply inherit this fortune, but will grow up as normal. The second richest singer in England wants to convey down-to-earth values to his children and therefore even insists that they will later buy their first car with their own money and that their first car will of course be a used car.
Elton John has sold more than 450 million records throughout his career, making him the most successful singer of all time. Especially the song that Sir Elton sang on the occasion of the death of Lady Diana, Princess of England, is still unforgettable today. 6 Grammy Awards, an Oscar, 4 Brit Awards, 1 Tony and 1 Golden Globe Award also show how successful Elton John really is. At the same time, Elton John also uses his star status to support a good cause. He has already donated a three-digit million sum, making him one of the 10 most generous people in Great Britain. At the beginning of 2018, the star announced that he would be on his last tour, which will last until June 2019. After that, he would like to look after his children and not travel as much anymore.
Sir Elton John: The Road to a Gigantic Fortune
There are many factors that contributed to Elton John’s groundbreaking success. One factor will certainly have been his varied repertoire, with which the Rocket Man singer always hits the nerve of the times, so that his songs are even regularly covered by other famous pop artists. Whether ballads, rock, rock’n’roll or rather blues and boogie, Elton John presents himself as a versatile artist who can not only sing, but is also a talented songwriter and has a feel for the right collaborations. For example, he was instrumental in the musical production of The Lion King.
Even little Elton was a real child prodigy. After his grandmother encouraged him to play the piano, he began studying music at the Royal Academy of Music in London at the tender age of 11. At first Elton was not a solo musician either, but founded a band with fellow students. Even after Elton broke up with his band, the first album was not a resounding success. But his label believed in him and gave it a second try.
On the second album, for example, the song “Your Song” was found, which was in the top 10 of the charts in both England and the USA. Only 3 years after his second album was released under the name “Elton John” in 1970, Elton founded his own label and from then on there was no stopping it. The following songs are probably some of the singer’s best-known hits, which are still popular with many music fans around the world as true classics:
- Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me
- Tiny dancer
- Candle in the Wind (Elton originally dedicated the song to Marilyn Monroe, but later it became the funeral song for Princess Diana, with whom the singer was close friends)
- Rocket Man
- Don’t go breaking my heart
The personal life of Elton John
By the way, Elton John now rarely appears as a singer. Rather, he runs one own publishing company and record companywho, among others, has Lily Allen and James Blunt under contract as real exceptional talents. Sir Elton John has also written a book about his experiences with AIDS. Elton John also uses his star status in this regard to draw attention to and clarify an important problem. Although he doesn’t make much of a stir about his private life, his biography reads rather changeable. In 1976 Elton announced that he bisexual may be. From 1984 to 1988 he was married to the sound engineer Renate Blauel from Germany. It was only after this divorce that Elton John admitted that he was actually gay.
Today the British singer, who had a pacemaker inserted in 1999, is married to David Furnish and has two children with him, both of whom were born to surrogate mothers in the United States. Both David and Elton could be the biological father of the children. However, the two men expressly do not want to know which of them really is the biological father. Incidentally, the godmother of the two children is none other than Lady Gaga herself.
