The Highest Earning Singers of 2013

Singers do happen to have something special and different from all others. Surely, there is no shortage of talent in the United States as well as in all other countries, but not all of those who enter the music world are able to make their worth. Singing is not just about looks and a good voice, but is also about covering the extra mile in comparison to all others. The highest paying singers are the ones who are able to make their place in our hearts. Now here, some of you might not agree with the list, as you might have your own favorite male and female singers.

I also agree that some of the singers are overrated, but still they do have that special touch of uniqueness in them due to which they are able to make much more than all others. The earnings which I will be sharing with you are on a yearly basis. The total amount includes the contracts, money earned through ads and from all other sources. The total figures might vary a bit from one source to the next. The music tours are also to be considered in terms of knowing about the total earnings. Here is the list of the 5 highest earning singers of 2013.
