Randy Jackson Net Worth is $40 million
The 57 year old bassist, singer and television celebrity is worth $40 million dollar, which is fair given his success and popularity. He was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is most famous for his appearances on “American Idol” as a celebrity judge.
Jackson is a Grammy Award winner and is associated with several acts. Throughout his career, he has always reinvented himself. He performed with the band Taxxi during his early days in the entertainment industry. He also performed in Italy with an Italian artist during the later parts of 1980s. He earned his fame mostly as a bass guitarist in the 80s and 90s .
He featured with artists like Aretha, Kenny G and Maze among others. During different timeframes, he has been a part of the crew for ‘N Sync, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Stryper, Whitney Houston, and Madonna. Rather than just being a bass guitarist he has continuously worked as a producer and songwriter at the same time; even managing concerts for some artists. 2008 saw him release the first album produced by him “Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol.1”.
He is managing Paper-Tongues and has been an executive at Columbia Records and MCA, all of which contribute their fair share to his net worth. Because of the other growing business activities, Jackson announced his retirement as a judge on the talent reality show American Idol, and reduced his role to that of a mentor.
This show has been another source for a large part of his popularity and he owes some his worth to American Idol as well. Randy Jackson as a person, is not just a bassist, songwriter, or a manager; instead he is an entrepreneur and businessman as well. If American Idol was not enough, he also has a top 40 count down radio show branded as Randy Jackson’s Hit List, which together make him so popular and successful that he is worth such an enormous amount of money.
