Full Force is a group of producers, songwriters and R&B performers, which was founded in 1976 in New York City, New York, USA. They are widely known for their collaborations with several big names of the music industry including, among plenty of others, Britney Spears, The Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Lil’ Kim as well as 2016 Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth the group has accumulated so far? What is the worth of Full Force? According to sources, it is estimated that the Full Force’s net worth, as of early 2017, exceeds the sum of $2 million which has been acquired through their long-lasting presence and works in the music industry which is now spanning over 40 years.

Full Force Net Worth $2 million

In 1976 in New York City’s borough of Brooklyn, the Music and production group Full Force was founded by six friends and cousins – Paul Anthony and Bow-Legged Lou (real name Lucien George Jr.) is in charge of vocals, Baby Gee (Gerry Charles) on keyboards, Curt-T-T (Curt Bedeau) and Shy Shy (Junior Clark) playing guitar and bass guitar respectively while B-Fine (Brian George) is responsible for drums and drum programming, with Steve Salem as their manager. Although struggling in the beginning, they independently released their debut single “Turn You On”.

Full Force gained more public attention in 1985, after producing and releasing the single “Roxanne, Roxanne” for Brooklyn’s old-school hip hop band U.T.F.O., a real commercial success, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard R&B chart and bringing the needed fame and so recording contracts for Full Force, providing the basis for its net worth as well.

The group rose to prominence after they wrote and produced the hit single “I Wonder If I Take You Home” for Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam. The song became a commercial hit, at first in Columbia, before becoming a hit single on the New York club circuit, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard Dance chart. It is certain that this accomplishment helped the members of Full Force to dramatically increase their, not only popularity, but wealth as well.

Apart from producing and writing, Full Force has also released ten of their own studio albums such as, among others, “Full Force” (1985), “Legendary” (2007) and “With Love From Our Friends” (2014), including over a dozen hit singles like “Temporary Love Thing”, “Unselfish Lover” as well as “All in My Mind” and “Alice, I Want You Just For Me!”. In their career in the music industry which has been active since 1976, the members of Full Force have collaborated with several big names including, apart from those already mentioned above, Selena, James Brown, Samantha Fox and La Toya Jackson as well as Backstreet Boys, Method Man and Roxanne Shanté. Doubtlessly, all these accomplishments have boosted the total size of Full Force’s net worth.

Apart from music, the Full Force crew appeared in the 1990 comedy “House Party” as well as its sequel “House Party 2” (1991). Judging by the movies box office earnings of $26.3 and $19.4 million respectively, these ventures significantly increased Full Force’s net worth by a large margin. They were also featured in Ted Demme’s directing debut, a 1993 comedy thriller “Who’s the Man” with Ed Lover and Doctor Dré in the leading roles.

Simon Mark Monjack was born on the 9th March 1970, in Hillingdon, Greater London, UK, and was a movie director and producer as well as a screenwriter and make-up artist. Apart from being the husband of American actress, singer and voice artist, Brittany Murphy, Simon is most famous for his work on “Two Days, Nine Lives” (2001), “Factory Girl” (2006) and “Abandoned” (2010.) Simon Monjack passed away at the age of 40, in 2010.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth he accumulated for life? How rich would Simon Monjack be today? According to sources, it is estimated that the total amount of Simon Monjack’s net worth, as of early 2017, would exceed the sum of $500,000 acquired through his career in the moviemaking industry which was active between 2000 and 2007.

Simon Monjack Net Worth $500,000

Simon was born to Linda and William, and besides English, is also of Jewish ancestry. He grew up in Buckinghamshire where he attended Juniper Hill School and later Royal Grammar School. Simon enrolled in the movie-making industry in 2000 when he began working on the low-budget motion picture “Two Days, Nine Lives”. He wrote the script and later directed and even produced the entire film which was then released in 2001. This venture provided the basis for Simon Monjack’s net worth.

In 2006, Simon was engaged as the story co-writer for the biographical drama about Edie Sedgwick, one of Andy Warhol’s superstar actresses and muses, “Factory Girl”. Despite featuring Sienna Miller, Jimmy Fallon and Guy Pearce in the leading roles, the movie lacked commercial success, scoring only $3.5 million at the box office. Apart from this, there were also some controversies about off-camera actions – director George Hickenlooper stated that Monjack claimed that the crew stole his script and then held them hostage, holding the filming back. Monjack denied these rumors, however, this project made an impact on Monjack’s net worth.

Although in 2007 E! News acknowledged that Monjack was chosen to direct a movie adaptation of D. M. Thomas‘ novel “The White Hotel”, it never came to realization. In 2010, Monjack was engaged as the make-up artist for Michael Feifer’s action thriller “Abandoned” featuring Brittany Murphy in the leading female role, which made a positive contribution to the size of Simon Monjack’s net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Simon Monjack was married twice, firstly in 2001 to Simone Bienne, but they separated only five months later, and officially divorced in 2006. In 2007, after a private ceremony, Simon married Brittany Murphy with whom he stayed until her death in 2009. Only five months later, Simon passed away in the same bed and from the same cause of death as Brittany, on the 23rd May 2010. These suspicious circumstances ruffled the media, but after several months the coroner’s report stated that he died of pneumonia and anemia, brought on by a heart attack.

In 2005, Monjack was faced with arrest on charges of credit card fraud, but these were later dropped, while in 2006 he was sued by Coutts Bank for $470,000, and was forced into eviction from four homes. In 2007, Monjack spent nine days imprisoned, as his US visa had expired.

Saul Zaentz was born on the 28th February 1921, in Passaic, New Jersey USA, of part Jewish ancestry, and was a film producer who is best known for being a three-time Academy Award winner, and for his work on “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975), “Amadeus” (1984), “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” (1988) as well as on “The English Patient” (1996). He passed away in 2014.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this veteran of the moviemaking industry accumulated for life? How rich would Saul Zaentz be today? According to sources, it is estimated that the total of Saul Zaentz’s net worth, as of early 2017, would be over $30 million, gathered through his career as a film producer which was active between 1975 and 2006.

Saul Zaentz Net Worth $30 million

After attending William B. Cruz Memorial School No. 11 in his home town, Saul joined the US Army in their World War II operations. Upon finishing his military service, he enrolled at Rutgers University. Later he discovered his interest in music, and began working for Norman Ganz, a chairman of a record company and creator of Jazz at the Philharmonic programs. In 1955 Zaentz associated with Fantasy Records and in 1967 he became one of its co-owners and soon after provided a record contract for rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival. These engagements provided the basis for Saul Zaentz’s net worth.

In the early 1970 he became interested in producing motion pictures after seeing the stage play adaptation of Ken Kesey’s novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. This led him to eventually co-producing the eponymous 1975 Miloš Forman’s movie adaptation which featured Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher in the leading roles. For this involvement, Zaentz was rewarded with an Oscar for Best Picture.

In 1977, Zaentz produced Keith Merrill’s western drama “Three Warriors”, before producing an eponymous animated adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy “The Lord of The Rings” in 1978. In 1980, Saul founded his own production company – The Saul Zaentz Film Center (later rebranded to The Saul Zaentz Company). As an avid reader, he preferred producing and adapting novels into movies, rather than original scripts and screenplays. In 1984, he collaborated with Forman again and produced “Amadeus”, a biographical drama about one of the most influential composers of the Classical era – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This engagement, apart from earning him another Academy Award for Best Picture, also dramatically increased the size of Saul Zaentz’s wealth.

In the course of the next decade, Zaentz produced several more motion pictures, all based on novels including, apart from those already mentioned above, “The Mosquito Coast” (1986) and “At Play in the Fields of the Lord” (1991). In 1996, Saul won his third Oscar for Best Picture for producing the romantic war drama “The English Patient” starring Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe and Juliette Binoche in the leading roles. Zaentz’s last work, and an exception from his “rule”, was another Forman motion picture, the 2006 biographical drama about the famous Spanish painter Francisco Goya named “Goya’s Ghosts”. Doubtlessly, all these achievements left a positive impact on the total amount of Saul Zaentz’s net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Saul Zaentz was married twice. Between 1960 and 1975 he was married to Charlie Mingus’ ex- wife Celia, with whom Saul had four children. He later married Lynda Redfield, but that marriage also ended with divorce several years later. He passed away at the age of 92, on the 3rd January 2014, in San Francisco, California, due to complications caused by Alzheimer’s disease.

Apart from his career in the moviemaking industry, Saul Zaentz was regularly active in various charity causes, including his own The Saul Zaentz Charitable Foundation which he created in 1997.

Although born in Massachusetts, Steve grew up in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and from his teen years became interested in the paranormal. When he was 15 years old he started focusing more and more on paranormal activities, and two years later he was already a semi-professional in the field. By the age of 20 he began investigating on his own, but then formed his own investigation team in Worcester, Massachusetts. Thanks to his dedication he also met James Hawes and Grant Wilson, and joined TAPS , which brought him into their TV series, Ghost Hunters. He is in charge of the camera and other technical equipment duties n the show, and has also started the magazine called “Paramagazine”, as a part of their TAPS organization.

Stephen Sondheim was born on the 22nd March 1930, in New York City, USA into a Jewish family, and is a composer and playwright, considered one of the most important of the 20th century. He is the author of some of the most significant American musicals such as “A Little Night Music”, “Sweeney Todd” and “Into the Woods”. Sondheim has been active in the music industry since 1954.

How rich is the composer and playwright? It has been estimated by authoritative sources that the overall size of Stephen Sondheim’s net worth is as much as $20 million, as of the data presented in the early 2017. Music is the main source of Sondheim’s wealth.

Stephen Sondheim Net Worth $20 Million

To begin with, Stephen Sondheim was born into a wealthy middle class family. Shortly before his tenth birthday his parents divorced, and Stephen with his mother moved to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, just a few meters from the residence of the most influential author of the American musical theatre, Oscar Hammerstein II, who inspired love and passion for both music and the theatre, giving him his first lessons on how to write musical comedies. Sondheim attended George School, where he actually wrote his first musical – “By George” – before studying theatre at Wlliams College in Massachusetts.

Concerning his career in theatre, at the age of 26 he wrote (alongside Leonard Bernstein) the lyrics for “West Side Story”, his first major success. After writing the lyrics for Jule Styne’s “Gypsy” in 1959 Sondheim presented himself more and more as a composer of Broadway musicals. Thus followed the musicals including “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” (1962), “Company” (1970), “Follies” (1971), “A Little Night Music” (1973), “Pacific Overtures” (1976), “Sweeney Todd” (1979) and “We Roll Along” (1981) all directed by Harold Prince. Stephen Sondheim composed the music and wrote the lyrics for “Anyone Can Whistle” (1964), worked as a writer with Richard Rodgers on “Do I Hear A Waltz”(1965), wrote new lyrics for Bernstein’s “Candide” (1974), and composed the music and wrote the lyrics to the love drama “Passion”. The script was written by James Lapine, and together they made “Sunday in the Park with George” (1984) for which they won a Pulitzer Prize. Sondheim’s lyrics and music are distinct, characteristic and therefore very typical. He knows how to turn the everyday things into beautiful poetry. His net worth was constantly rising with each success.

Furthermore, Sondheim composed the music for the films “Stavisky” (1974), “Reds” (1981) and wrote several songs for the film “Dick Tracy” (1992), performed by Madonna. He wrote with Anthony Perkins the screenplay for the film “The Last of Sheila”, and composed the music and lyrics for the television musical “Evening Primrose” (1966). Also several musicals were filmed including “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” (1966), “A Little Night Music” (1977), “Sweeney Todd” (2008) and “Into the Woods” (2015).

What is more, Sondheim has won Tony Awards among others, as the Best Composer and Best Lyricist for “Sweeney Todd”, “A Little Night Music”, “Follies” and “Company”. The latter also won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. In 1990, he received an Oscar for the song “Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)” from the film “Dick Tracy”. Sondheim was honoured for his lifetime achievements with a special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre (2008) and a special Laurence Olivier Award (2011).

In addition, Stephen Sondheim is a board member of the Dramatists Guild, the American Association of Playwrights, Composers and Lyricists, and was chairman from 1973 to 1981 and was elected to in 1983, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 1989, Stephen was appointed Visiting Professor of Drama and Musical Theatre at the University of Oxford. In September 2010, the Broadway theatre in New York was renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, to coincide and celebrate Sondheim’s 80th birthday.

Finally, in the personal life of the composer, he admits to being gay, and although there’s a 50 year age difference, has been in a relationship with stage identity Jeff Romley for 15 years.

So just how rich is Kanye West, as of early 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Kanye has a net worth of over $160 million, accumulated during his career in the entertainment industry which now spans more than 20 years.

Kanye West Net Worth $160 million

Kanye moved to Chicago, Illinois with his mother after his parents’ divorce – Dr. Donda West was an English professor, before becoming West’s manager. He also spent some time in China when his mother taught at Nanjing University, and learned the language. Kanye began rapping and writing in his early teens, and although he briefly attended both the American Academy of Art studying art, and Chicago State University to study English in the late ‘90s, he dropped out to concentrate on music.

It is said that Kanye worked on his debut album “The College Dropout” for almost four years – which hit second place on the Billboard 200 – but even then was also producing other artists’ music. Later followed the albums “Late Registration”, “Graduation” as well as “808s & Heartbreak” and “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy“.

Kanye’s releases seem to practically sell themselves, but so do those on which he has worked as a producer, with such stars as Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé, John Legend, Janet Jackson and  Alicia Keys. In his musical career overall, Kanye Omari has won more than 40 awards, fourteen of them being Grammys, two American Music Awards, and seven BET awards, as a solo artist and a producer working with his record label called Roc-A-Fella, which is an allusion to the Rockefeller family who are also very wealthy.

Additionally, Kanye is a businessman, and created a luxurious shoe line for Louis Vuitton couture house, and in 2014 a line of sneakers on which he collaborated with Nike – called Air Yeezy – a reference to one of his albums, “Yeezus”.

Speaking about his personal life, Kanye has been married to wealthy socialite and reality show star Kimberly ‘Kim’ Kardashian since 2014, and they have a daughter and a son. In the past Kanye dated Alexis Phifer, model Amber Rose, and also rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Kanye is also a noted philanthropist – after his mother’s death, he established a charity called Dr. Donda West Foundation, which supports African-American children, as well as latino children, and  provided help to the victims of hurricane Katrina.

Wendy Williams is an African-American actress, TV and radio personality, born on 18 July 1964 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. She is best recognized as the host of the TV program “The Wendy Williams Show”, which first went to air in 2008, but she actually began her career on radio in the US Virgin Islands in the late 1980s.

So just how rich is Wendy Williams, as of early 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Wendy’s net worth now reaches over $80 million, which is unsurprising as in 2013 Williams’ salary for one season of “The Wendy Williams Show” was $8 million, and presumably other yearly income is similar.

Wendy attended Ocean Township High School, and later Northeastern University in Boston, studying communications and graduating with a BA degree. Her career actually began on the college radio, where she was a DJ, so she soon got her first job at WVIS radio station in the Virgin Islands. In 1989 Williams began working as a DJ on the WRKS radio station in New York, and gained prominence when she was promoted and became a host of the morning show, quickly becoming one of the most popular DJs. The show focused mainly on celebrities, and Wendy’s task was to reveal unflattering details about the private lives of various famous people, for which Williams was rewarded as the Best On-Air Radio Personality, a title which certainly helped her career, and contributed to an increase in her net worth.

From 1994 to ’98, Wendy worked at Hot 97 urban station in New York. When Williams was fired, she took another radio job at the Philadelphia station WUSL, significantly raising the station’s profile, before returning to New York and WBLS, to an afternoon slot which was eventually syndicated around the country, and brought her to the next step in her career.

In 2008 Wendy began appearing on TV – subsequently Fox – on “The Wendy Williams Show”, in a similar vein to her previous radio program, and which continues to this day. Wendy became known for quarrels with a number of celebrities; she has criticized plenty on her talk show, for instance Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Will Smith, usually because the facts that she gives out about such people are not necessarily true; ironically, this is one reason why the show became very popular, and Wendy Williams extremely famous in the entertainment business. In addition, it also added considerably to Williams’ net worth.

Wendy Williams is also an actress, who has starred in a number of television films, including “Think Like a Man” in 2012 and its sequel “Think Like a Man 2” two years later. Inevitably perhaps, Wendy also appeared in the 2011 season of “Dancing with the Stars”.

She is also the owner of the production company “Wendy Williams Productions”, and is a writer too, having written three non-fiction and four fiction books – “The Wendy Williams Experience” and “Wendy’s Got The Heat” were bestsellers, so Williams became richer still.

Moreover, Wendy also sells a line of jewelry products – entitled “Adorn by Wendy Williams” – on the home shopping network QVC. The profit coming from this activity also adds to Williams net worth. Wendy Williams is clearly a busy, hard-working woman, who has tried and made her luck in several fields.

In her personal life, in 1999 she married Kevin Hunter and together they have a son. They all still reside in New York City.

Initially, Lewis and Harris alongside Jellybean Johnson and Monte Moir founded their music group Flyte Tyme while still at high school – for a wider audience this band was known as The Time. They had released the albums “The Time” (1981) and “What Time Is It?” (1982), before Harris and Lewis decided to pursue their careers in the sphere of music production. The Time appeared as the opening act while touring with Prince and the Revolution, unfortunately, they were fired from the tour because they were unable to rejoin because of bad weather conditions. However, soon they returned to the industry as the producers of The SOS Band – the songs they produced including “Just Be Good to Me” became a huge success. Soon, they became very popular, and under the name of Flyte Tyme Productions, the two produced many musicians including Patti Austin, Gladys Knight and Thelma Houston. Lewis’ net worth was well established.

In 1985, the producers met Janet Jackson who at that time was trying to pursue her career away from her famous siblings – The Jacksons and Michael Jackson were international superstars already. Janet Jackson’s third album “Control”, was very successful for both the producers and the singer, with all three winning a Grammy Award. Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam produced six more albums with Jackson; some of them were even more successful than “Control”.

Afterwards, Jimmy and Lewis founded a private label Perspective Records in the early 1990s. They worked with such famous artists as Ann Nesby, Bobby Ross Avila, Sounds of Blackness, Smooth, Solo, Mint Condition as well as Lo-Key. They also produced Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Gwen Stefani, Usher , Mary J. Blige as well as Mariah Carey. At the beginning of 2008 Terry and Jimmy reunited as the band “The Time” for the first time since the separation; in the middle of 2008, they played a number of concerts in various places in Las Vegas, USA.

To make all things clear, Jimmy and Terry are successful producers who have 41 songs that reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and 31 on the Top 10 in the UK.

Finally, Terry Lewis was married to the popular singer Karyn White, and they have a daughter. However, the couple is divorced.
