Sarah Brightman is an English classical soprano singer and actress. She has recently released a new single entitled, ‘God Save the Queen’ in time for the jubilee festivities next weekend.
But she is probably best known for her starring role as Jemima in Cats, the musical written by composer and former husband, Andrew Lloyd Weber. It was from here that her career skyrocketed. After a year in Cats, she starred in The Pirates of Penzance, Masquerade and Charles Strouse’s children’s opera, Nightingale.
So, after making her glittering debut on multiple West End stages, the question remains: what is her net worth? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Brightman is worth a cool $60 million.
Brightman played Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera, the best selling musical which is considered by some to be the most ‘beautiful and spectacular productions in history’.
Aside from her foray in acting, she also topped the charts all across Europe for her 1996 duet with Andrea Bocelli, ‘Time to Say Goodbye’. It became the highest and fastest-selling single of all time in Germany and remained at the top of the charts for 14 consecutive weeks.
Judging by her ostentatious and theatrical website, it seems that she is well aware of her fame and fortune. Her globe trotting tour starts in October and will extend from Mexico to the sprawling casinos of Las Vegas.
And as if this wasn’t enough, Brightman has a charitable side to her. As a keen philanthropist, she was nominated by UNESCO to become an ‘Artist for Peace’ ambassador.
She has relentlessly campaigned for the education and empowerment of women in STEM and has financially supported music scholarships at the Royal Northern College of Music. In the past, she has generously donated to the scholarship foundation using the proceeds of the sale of two pieces of Cartier jewellery previously given to her by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
