At the mere age of 8, the young star mesmerized many people when she sang at her mother’s wedding ceremony. The performance she put out at the ceremony was so good that her mother had no choice than to enroll the little vocalist in voice lessons which helped in developing her prowess maximally. During this time, she also began taking part in some local musical theater productions and in the process met with Mitch Grassi – a singer and future Pentatonix member.

From College Drop-out to Pentatonix Star

When Kirsten Maldonado began high school, she became friends with Scott Hoying who was also a singer. Together with Mitch Grassi, they formed a music trio and performed the covers of popular songs around the school, winning lots of fans in the process.

Kirsten left high school in 2010 and proceeded to university. However, in 2011 during her sophomore year, Scott Hoying reached out to the young vocalist informing her that he is trying to form a singing group that would compete at NBC’s a cappella competition called The Sing-Off. She agreed to be part of the plan and abandoned school to focus on the group which was called Pentatonix. The group members included Kirsten, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, and two others Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee.

The group entered the Sing-Off competition and was so good that they eventually won the contest. Their win announced them to a global audience that wanted some more of their sound. After winning the Sing-Off competition, Kirsten and the other Pentatonix group members all relocated to Los Angeles to pursue their singing career and have since wowed the world with their immense talent.

With time, Pentatonix recorded unprecedented success which Kirsten Maldonado is a part of. The group has now released several albums and EPs which have sold several million copies around the globe. They have equally toured the world, thrilling fans with their incredibly melodious sound.

Their performances have been watched more than 3 billion times on YouTube and they also have more than 13 million subscribers on the channel. Also, the group has won no less than three Grammy awards and many other awards. The success of the group has made the members, including Kirsten very popular around the US and abroad.

Going Solo and Recent Endeavours

Among the male-dominated Pentatonix, Kirsten Maldonado is the last to go solo. According to the artist, she considers herself a late bloomer in that regard, however, breaking out late has not doused her shine at all.

Her most recent works majorly include her solo efforts. Her debut solo single Break a Little officially hit the music stand on the 19th of May 2017: the track was accompanied by a music video. Following that, Kirsten did not let the grass grow under her feet in dropping her debut EP L O V E which came to light barely two months later on the 14th of July the same year. Events occurred in quick succession for the popular artist who on August 31, 2017, did a collaboration with Play-N-Skillz releasing Hey Guapo.

By 2018, she went on to take an acting role, albeit in a musical: the Broadway musical Kinky Boots featured her in the lead role of Lauren alongside comedian Wayne Brandy and vocalist Jake Shears. The finals of the musical took place on the 4th of May 2018.

How Rich Has Music Made Maldonado?

Apparently, Kirsten Maldonado has been able to rake in some wealth for herself over the years with her work as a singer and performer. With Pentatonix, the celebrity vocalist has released albums that sold off millions of copies.

The Pentatonix group is reported to be worth about $60 million. They generate revenue from their album sales, tours, and activities on social media platforms, especially YouTube.

When a music group is as successful as Pentatonix, they will no doubt encounter more endorsement deals that they can deal with which is exactly the case with the famous a cappella group. Over the years, they have landed awesome endorsement deals that have added to their fortune.

Apart from her cut from the Pentatonix fortune, Kirsten has been doing some lucrative work on her own. Kirsten’s net worth has been pegged at about $8 million by celebrity wealth calculators. This figure is expected to grow some more as she continues to wow her audience with her astounding prowess in music.

The 5 feet 4 inches singer was previously in a serious relationship with Jeremy Michael Lewis whom she met in 2013 on The Sing-Off.

Just like Kirsten Maldonado, Jeremy Michael Lewis is also a singer, however, singing is not his only profession, Jeremy is equally an entrepreneur who happens to be the Vice President of a content broadcasting company known as Kastr. The couple spent quite a while as an item.

On the 29th of May in 2016, Kirsten got engaged to Jeremy, and fans were thrilled with the development. However, to the greatest surprise of fans in 2017, the couple who were supposed to get married later that year postponed their wedding so as to work on was they plainly said to be “issues”.

While curiosity lingered in the heart of fans about the outcome of their “issues,” both kept mum about it until sometime in 2018 when Kirstin began flaunting a new face as her boyfriend. Fast forward to March 2019, Jeremy began dating popular Canadian YouTuber LaurDIY.

Kirstin has photos of her and her new boyfriend (who per her posts was born on the 23rd of December 1991) scattered all over her Instagram. She fondly refers to him as “BAYB” and refrains from tagging his handle on her posts.
