Nelly Furtado sang in public for the first time when she was four, in a duet with her mother, for celebrating Portugal Day at church. When she was nine she started playing the trombone and the ukulele, followed later by the guitar and keyboards. When she was 18, she participated in a talent show in Toronto, called the “Honey Jam”, in which she was seen by the manager of the pop group Philosopher Kings, who asked Nelly to sing with his band. Soon after recording with some of the Philosopher Kings’ members, Nelly Furtado signed a deal with DreamWorks Records. Her net worth had begun.

The singer released her first album, “Whoa, Nelly!”, in 2000 and the record became an immediate international success, receiving four Grammy nominations. Nelly’s debut single, “I’m like a Bird”, brought the singer an award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2002. A year later Nelly released a second album, called “Folklore”, which included “Força”, the song written for the 2004 European Football Championship. Her third album, named “Loose”, was released in 2006. In 2009, she also recorded a Spanish album, which was called “Mi plan”. In 2010, a new album containing the singer`s greatest hits, “The Best of Nelly Furtado”, was released and, in 2012, Nelly Furtado released another album, called “The Spirit Indestructible”. Her music was featured in several soundtracks for films and television shows, including “Six Feet Under”, “Velo de novia”, “The Princess Diaries”, “Melrose Place”, and “The Smurfs 2”. All these contributed steadily to her net worth.

Nelly Furtado has had five important tours, which added money to her income: “Burn in the Spotlight Tour”, in 2001, “Come as You Are Tour”, in 2004, “Get Loose Tour”, between 2007 and 2008, “Mi Plan Tour”, in 2010, and “The Spirit Indestructible Tour”, in 2013: her net worth improved accordingly.

Besides her career as a musician, Nelly Furtado is also known as an actress. She had roles in the television series “CSI: NY”, “Max Payne”, “Anne Murray: Friends & Legends”, “Score: A Hockey Musical”, “The Work of Art”, “90210”, and “A Date with Miss Fortune”. Of course these contributed to her net worth, too.

In her personal life, Nelly Furtado married to Demacio Castellon in 2008, and has a daughter from a previous relationship with Jasper Gahunia. She lives in a house in Toronto estimated to be valued at $1.4 million. The singer is involved in several charity projects, and she donated over $1 million to the “Free the Children” organization, money about which the media had written was made performing for the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
