Kesha Rose Sebert, to the public known simply as Kesha, is a famous American dancer, singer, composer, as well as a songwriter. Kesha first rose to prominence in 2009 when she was featured on a single by Flo Rida called “Right Round” and even though the song received many negative reviews from critics, it still topped the music charts and sold more than 5 million digital copies in the United States alone. A year later, in 2010, Kesha came out with her debut album entitled “Animal”. From the critical point of view, the album received mixed reviews, as some of the critics dismissed its carefree nature as immature and insincere. Nevertheless, “Animal” proved to be a commercial success among the audience and not only received a Platinum certification from the RIAA but was also nominated for the Juno Award for “Best International Album”. In addition to that, Kesha’s debut album spawned several popular singles, namely “Take It Off”, “Your Love Is My Drug”, “Blah Blah Blah” and “Tik Tok”. The latter song became Kesha’s ticket to mainstream success. “Tik Tok” became a worldwide phenomenon, as it peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and in 2010 sold more than 12 million digital copies, which made it the best-selling song of that year.
Kesha Net Worth $40 Million
A famous singer, how rich is Kesha? According to sources, Kesha’s net worth is estimated to be $40 million. Needless to say, the majority of Kesha’s net worth comes from her singing career.
Kesha was born in 1987, in Los Angeles, California, but later in her childhood moved to Tennessee, where her mother, a singer named Patricia Rose Sebert, received a contract for songwriting. It was with her mother’s help that Kesha was able to give her demos to important people in the music industry and eventually receive a record deal with Kemosabe Entertainment.
However, she then joined the DAS Communications and with their help earned an opportunity to appear in a music video of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” song, as well as provide backing vocals for Britney Spears’ song called “Lace and Leather”. Kesha then sang on Flo Rida’s “Right Round” and after having signed a record deal with RCA Records, released her debut work entitled “Animal”. Following the success of “Animal”, that same year Kesha came out with her extended play work called “Cannibal”, which enjoyed more positive reviews from the critics than its predecessor. In addition to spawning two singles, namely “We R Who We R” and “Blow”, the album topped the music charts and with more than 500 000 copies sold, and was certified Gold by the RIAA. Kesha’s most recent studio album is yet another mainstream success. “Warrior” was released in 2012, and not only did it produce several popular singles, but was also followed by a worldwide tour, which Kesha co-headlined with Pitbull.
In addition to singing, Kesha made on screen appearances in “Saturday Night Live”, “The X Factor Australia”, as well as a reality television series entitled “Kesha: My Crazy Beautiful Life”.
