Boyle has made $16 million since appearing on TV contest.
There’s no way back to Susan, who, since the contest finalized, she has sold 10 million albums and received a Grammy nomination last week.
Obviously this outstanding success translates to a big cash flow on Boyle’s account. The Scottish artist is said to have pocketed $16.5 million due to record sales, the release of her official autobiography and several TV appearances.
According to Cliff Dane from Britain’s Sunday Times Rich List: “Unlike a lot of artists who write songs and have heavy touring commitments, most of Susan’s income has come from old-fashioned record sales, mostly CDs as opposed to downloads due to the nature of her fanbase.”
