She went to college in Pennsylvania and studied to become a nurse, before she returned to Philadelphia, when she was contacted by her old friend Patsy Holt, better known as Patti LaBelle, as a replacement for Sundray Tucker in Patsy’s vocal group, called The Ordettes. In the next few years, the group built their name in Philadelphia, and managed by Bernard Montague they signed a deal with Newtown Records, owned by Harold Robinson. However, Robinson wasn’t quite impressed by group’s performance at first, but after they changed their name to the Blue Belles, and Holt changing her name to Patty LaBelle, he immediately signed them to his label. Their first hit was “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman”, released in 1962, and until the late ’60s, Cindy and the rest of the Blue Belles built their name with hits such as “Down the Aisle (The Wedding Song)” (1963), “You’ll Never Walk Alone” (1964), “Over the Rainbow” (1966), “Always Something There to Remind Me” (1967), and “Oh My Love” (1967), among many others that only increased Cindy’s net worth and her popularity as well.

In 1967 Cindy left Patty and the Bluebelles to join Diana Ross and the Supremes, after serving for a couple of months as their stand-in vocalist, replacing Florence Ballard, due to her trouble with alcoholism. Until 1970, Ross was the leader of the group, however she left and was replaced by Jean Terrell, and Cindy and Mary Wilson featured often as lead vocalists. She stayed with the Supremes until 1976, and worked on such albums as “The Reflections” (1968), “Love Child” (1968), “Let the Sunshine In” (1969), “Right On” (1970), “Touch” (1971), “Floy Joy” (1972), and “High Energy” (1976), adding steadily to her net worth.

After leaving the Supremes, Cindy left music as well, an worked as a nurse at UCLA Medical Center in California, and then held a job at Motown records, before returning to the music industry with the single “Dancing Room”, released in 1987. Her last performance was in 2004 when she, Mary Wilson and Kelly Rowland performed Supreme hits for the Motown 45th anniversary television special. She is now retired from music, and works as a minister in the Los Angeles area.

Regarding her personal life, Cindy has a son, David with her ex-husband Charles Hewlett; the couple was married from 1970 until 1975.

    No way – In Living Hell – is Cindy Birdsong worth 10 MIllion Dollars! It was Diana Ross who gave Birdsong money, in the late eighties, so Birdsong could leave England.

    Birdsong is worth about $800.000, at most and that is a specious amount. She does not receive residuals from her days with The Supremes as she negotiated that by leaving The Supremes. Birdsong has a few bucks – at most – as is quite factual about it, too. Much of her saved money was divided up when she and Hewlett divorced. She has already stated this – prior.

    She is 100% forgotten by all except a handful of Gay Fans…no bettered remember than Terrell, Payne or Green.

Published

on

Joshua Scott “JC” Chasez, also known as JC Chasez, Big Daddy or J. C. Chasez is a white American who was born on August 8 1976 in Washington, United States of America, but he was raised in Bowie, Maryland after he was adopted by Roy and Karen Chasez when Joshua’s biological mother entrusted care of him at the age of 5. Chasez has never known his biological father and he seems not to have any plans to search for him. So JC Chasez grew-up in his new family with a younger brother Tyler and a sister Heather. As a child he attended Robert Goddart Middle School and always loved dancing during school years.

JC Chasez Net Worth $30 Million

Today JC Chasez is mainly known as an American boy band ‘N Sync member, occasional actor, singer, dancer and songwriter. Today he has a net worth of $30 million, But Joshua’s first steps in his future career weren’t so notable for the rest of the world. As a boy JC Chasez was extremely shy, but he was able to fight with his modesty and joined the Mickey Mouse Club.

The first real success came for Chasez after the formatIon of a band called ‘N Sync which has become extremely popular in the USA and Europe from 2000. Although ‘N Sync broke up in 2002, the have sold more that 9.9 million copies of their album “No Strings Attached”. This was one of the biggest investments in Joshua’s net worth, but the band have licensed their likenesses and released microphones, lip balm, marionettes, books, key chains, cloths and video games with their emblem. The band has also been dealing with McDonalds, Chilli’s Grill & Bar. In 2009 N’Sync was even immortalized in wax In New York’s Madame Tussaunds museum and can be seen there until today. N’Sync members acheived not only worldwide recognition after releasing their albums and singles, but also earned huge amounts of money from live performances and different merchandise.

Since 2002 JC Chasez has tried several different aspects of the entertainment industry – he has written songs, produced records, danced and even appeared in some movies. His most notable appearances were in a movie called “21 and a Wake-Up”, where he played Dr. Tom Dury, in “Killer Movie” as Ted Buckley, in “Longshot” as a pizzeria worker, and in “Greetings from Tucson” as Jay Dugray. But mostly he has become known as a singer, because after leaving ‘N Sync he started his own solo career and released his first solo single “Blowin’ Me Up (With Her Love)” in 2002. JC Chasez’s debut album “Schizophrenic” appeared in 2004 and was able to take 17th chart position in the US and 46th position in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, nowadays JC Chasez’s career isn’t as successful as it was 10 years ago. His last released solo album “The Story of Kate” in 2007 didn’t appear in any charts,  and since then JC Chasez has just made appearances in some other albums as a guest. He was talking about ‘N Sync reunion in 2011, but until today this ambition has not come to fruition.

Neal Schon Net Worth

Published

on

Neal George Joseph Schon was born on 27th February 1954 at Tinker AFB (Air Force Base), Oklahoma USA, of Italian and German descent. Neal Schon is a rock guitarist, songwriter and vocalist, best known for being an important member of several hugely popular bands, namely Santana, Bad English and Journey.

So just how rich is Neal Schon? Neal’s net worth has been calculated to be over $30 million, amassed during his successful career of more than 40 years in the music industry.

Neal Schon Net Worth $30 Million

Neal Schon was lucky to be born into a musical family – his father Mathew Schon was a famous musician and mother Barbara Schon sang in a band. So Schon picked his first guitar at the age of five years, and starting at early age is usually a way to success. His first career steps started at the age of 15 with the band Santana, in preference to joining Eric Clapton in the band Derek and the Dominos, and debuting with some vocals on Santana’s album Santana III. Being such a great musician at such young age with the possibility to choose between two iconic bands, he went on and started making his money. He also played for Azteca but very briefly.

In 1973 Neal Schon formed his now legendary band Journey. He subsequently released five solo albums, and fourteen studio albums with the band. This must be the main flow into his net worth. Importantly, he is the only band member who has not changed through the years. He has taken part in every tour of the band, and sang on all their albums, so no doubt this longevity with Journey has increased the overall amount of Neal Schon’s net worth as well. Apart from this, he has also collaborated with famous musicians such as keyboardist Jan Hammer, Sammy Hagar and Paul Rodgers on short-term projects.

Neal Schon is as great a vocalist, as he is a guitar virtuoso. Two talents double the money earned, does it not? Let’s talk about his musical influences, of whom there were plenty. He has said that he was highly influenced by the 1960’s, musicians from that era such as Gladys Knight and Aretha Franklin. Then he put some blues to the mix, namely B.B. King and added some guitar-based influences, including of course Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton as well as Wes Montgomery. This is probably Neal Schon’s key to fame – adding the best ingredients from different musical eras.

Schon was always proud of his guitars. He started with acoustic Stella guitar followed by Gibson ES-335. At present he became interested in Xotic guitars. Schon was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in August 2013, which made him, if possible, even more famous. This is considered to be an accomplishment of a lifetime for any musician.

In his not-so-private personal life, Neal Schon has married five times, first to Tena Austin(1976-86), then Beth Buckley(1987-92), Dina Gioeli(1993-99), and Amber Kozan(2001-08). In 2013 he married Michaele Salahi. He has five children.
