Cilla Black Net Worth $5 million

Cilla was born to Priscilla Blythen and John Patrick White, and apart from English is also of Irish and Welsh descent. She matriculated from St. Anthony’s School after which she enrolled at the Anfield Commercial College. Dedicated to dive into the entertainment industry, Cilla began working as a Cavern Club attendant in her home town. Encouraged by The Beatles, Cilla turned herself towards her singing career and debuted at the Casanova Club in 1963. This was followed by several engagements as a guest singer for Kingsize Taylor and the Dominoes as well as for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. This marked the beginning of her career which later helped her gain a rather impressive net worth.

In September 1963, Cilla signed a recording contract with The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein, and soon after released her debut single – “Love of the Loved” – which had a modest commercial success. However, her second single released in January 1964, entitled “Anyone Who Had a Heart”, was an immediate success, peaking at No. 1 on the UK charts, selling over 800,000 copies. The following several singles such as “It’s For You”, “You’re My World” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” continued to find success, hitting the charts and selling millions of copies worldwide. All these achievements helped Cilla Black to add a considerable amount of money to her net worth, and also to establish herself on the global music scene.

In her music career, which spanned over 50 years, ending with her demise in 2015, Cilla Black released 15 studio albums, and produced 37 hit singles including “Step Inside Love”, “Something Tells Me (Something’s Gonna Happen Tonight)” and “Alfie”. It is certain that all these accomplishments helped Cilla Black to increase the total of her revenues by a large margin.

Apart from music, Cilla Black had also made a successful television career which began in 1968 when she began hosting her own talk-show, airing on BBC ’til 1976, simply named “Cilla”. She later performed as an entertainer on “Cilla’s Comedy Six” during the 1970s, while between 1984 and her death in 2015, she served as a presenter on the “Surprise Surprise” talk-show. She was also a host of the “Blind Date” reality TV program between 1985 and 2003. Doubtlessly, all these ventures added a significant sum to Cilla’s net worth.

In 1996 Cilla was rewarded with a British Comedy Award as Top ITV Entertainer/Presenter, and in 2014 with a Special BAFTA Award. For her contribution to the entertainment industry, Cilla Black was also honored with an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1997.

Additionally, Cilla Black also published two books, both autobiographies – “Step Inside” in 1985 as well as in 2003 “What’s It All About?”, no doubt adding to her modest fortune..

When it comes to her personal life, Cilla Black was married to Bobby Willis from 1969 until his death in 1999, and welcomed three sons and a premature daughter who survived for only two hours. Cilla Black passed away at the age of 72, in her home in Estepona, Málaga, Spain, after fallingand hitting her head, and then suffering a stroke.

# Quote
1 I did fancy Paul (Paul McCartney). I went through the whole Beatles. I started fancying John Lennon and then he wasn’t interested, obviously. And then I went on to Paul and he wasn’t interested. And I got on to George (George Harrison) and he wasn’t interested. And who’d have thought that Ringo (Ringo Starr) today would look the cute one? He does. He used to look like Yasser Arafat.
2 I had to do the book because there was an unauthorized biography which didn’t tell it like it was.
3 I didn’t think before that I’d done enough to justify publishing an autobiography but after 40 years in show business I’m now ready to tell my story.
