Here are the Highest Paid Female Singers in the World
10. Barbra Streisand
Personal earnings: $30 million (£21.5 million)
Age really is just a number, and Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand is living proof of this. At the age of 75, she released her 35th studio album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway in August 2016 which went on to top the charts in the UK, the US and Australia and sold over 600,000 copies that year alone.
The album was supported by a sold-out concert tour in North America called Barbra: The Music, The Mem’ries, The Magic, and accounted for most of Barbs’s earnings in 2017 – in fact, it grossed over $53 million at the box office!
