The Voice has been a part of the spectrum of American entertainment since it came on air in April 2012. The singing competition cum reality show has been the leading singing competition show in the US since its premiere and in that time, it has recorded several winners and contestants who have gone on to have a successful career and become quite rich. This has raised the question of who are the richest The Voice contestants of all time?
The show itself rewards its winners with a $100 thousand cash prize and a record deal with Universal Music Group, and while in itself, it is a decent offering, the exposure from competing on the show has served as a great platform for contestants to build a successful career and become rich men and women.
Check out some of the stars who attained stardom from the show and are also considered some of the richest The Voice contestants.
Who Are The Richest The Voice Contestants of All Time And What Are Their Net Worths?
Cassadee Pope (Net Worth – $4 million)
Cassadee competed in the third season of The Voice and she is one of the lucky few who eventually went on to win the show. Before her appearance on the show, she was a member and the lead singer of the pop-rock band, Hey Monday. With the exposure The Voice afforded her and her victory thereof, she has released her solo studio album, Frame by Frame, which reached the coveted number one spot in the US Country Billboard chart.
Combined with the success of her album, along with earnings from concert shows and tours, Cassadee Pope ranks top among the richest The Voice contestants of all time. The talented and famous American singer and song composer has a net worth of $4 million.
Craig Wayne Boyd (Net Worth – $2.3 million)
Craig Wayne Boyd’s net worth of $2.3 million makes him the runner-up on this list of the richest The Voice contestants of all time. During his time on the show, he finished as the show’s winner in its seventh season, having trained under country music icon, Blake Shelton.
Since his time on the show, despite going on a 65-city tour and releasing a single that debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs, he hasn’t had much personal success as a musician.
Dia Frampton (Net Worth – $2 million)
The third contestant on our list finished as the runner-up in the first season of The Voice and despite not winning the coveted top spot, she has managed to forge a career for herself, releasing her debut solo album Red in December 2011. Dia has released two albums along with two EPs, which has earned her a net worth of $2 million. Her net worth has also been earned through her work as a songwriter. She has written for The Crystal Method and Lindsey Stirling.
Javier Colon (Net Worth – $1.8 million)
Javier Colon may have won the first season of The Voice ahead of Dia Frampton, but he is behind her on this list of the richest The Voice contestants of all time. Before he competed on the show, Javier had a music career that included a recording contract and his record label with his band, The Derek Trucks Band. He joined The Voice in pursuit of a solo career and he has released two albums, one of which is a self-titled album, Javier, that peaked at number 18 on the US R&B Billboard Chart. He has a net worth of $1.8 million.
Josh Kaufman (Net Worth $1.6 million)
Another star who made his name in the show and is today considered one of the richest The Voice contestants of all time is Josh Kaufman. Not only is he one of the richest, but he is the oldest to ever win the show, having won the sixth season of the show. He hasn’t had an explosive career since he won the show but he has recorded modest successes like performing on Broadway and singing the anthem during a major US soccer match, all of which has helped him to a net worth of $1.6 million.
Jordan Smith (Net Worth – $1.5 million)
Although he holds the title for being the best-selling artist in the history of The Voice, Jordan Smith ranks sixth among the richest The Voice contestants of all time. His album, Something Beautiful peaked at number two on the Billboard Top 200 chart. He has since released additional two albums and he is credited as the writer of the song, Ashes for the Deadpool 2 soundtrack. He has a net worth of $1.5 million.
Sawyer Fredericks (Net Worth – $1.3 million)
Sawyer Fredericks got a great boost to his music career when he won the eighth season of The Voice. Since then, he has released his debut project, an eponymously named EP, Sawyer Fredericks, which was a successful debut for the Connecticut-born singer/songwriter.
He has released two other projects, named A Good Storm and Hide Your Ghost. His album sales and earnings from his national tour have earned him a modest net worth of $1.3 million.
So far, as evident by this list, The Voice, despite holding firm as the number one singing competition show in the ratings against its rival, American Idol, has yet to produce a music superstar. Comparably, American Idol has had major superstars like Kelly Clarkson who has a net worth of $28 million, Carrie Underwood who has a net worth of $85 million and Jennifer Hudson with $20 million.
