Tom Jones Net Worth $250 Million
As a musician, Tom Jones has produced songs in genres like gospel, show tunes, pop, country and rock. He was born in Wales on June 7, 1940. Before long, he quickly developed a following due to his sex appeal and signature voice. Throughout his career, Tom Jones has served more than 100 million records. Many of his top songs were recorded during the beginning of the 1960s. Hits like “It's Not Unusual” became international successes. In 2010, he released his 39th album. Unlike other aging artists, this album managed to debut second on the United Kingdom's charts. Through his various projects, he has managed to accumulate a net worth of $250 million.
His contributions to music led to a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 1999. Some of his top songs ever include “Sex Bomb”, “What's New Pussycat” and “Delilah”. These songs are part of the 36 that made it into the top 40. As a child, Tom Jones grew up within Glamorgan, South Wales. His father was a coal miner and was raised in a solid middle class family. When he was still a young child, he began to sing at family events and in his school's choir. Although he was diagnosed with tuberculosis at the age of 12, he managed to recover within two years.
Since he could not be as active as other children his age, he spent the two years listening to music and drawing. Some of his earliest influences were artists like Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Jack Wilson. In 1957, Jones married his school sweetheart, Melinda Trenchard. In 1963, he joined the band Tommy Scott and the Senators and began his music career. They played at dance halls and clubs until Jones was discovered by Gorgon Mills. After becoming his manager, Jones signed a contract with Decca.
