Deniece Williams spent her childhood in her hometown, the daughter of a security guard and a nurse. Upon matriculation, she moved to Baltimore, Maryland, where she enrolled at Morgan State University, but only studied for a year and half, after which she quit education. At that time, she began to perform at local clubs, and soon her professional musical career began.
In 1968, Deniece had signed a contract with The Toddlin’ Town’s Lock Records, through she released the song “I’m Walking Away”, which marked the beginning of her net worth. In the following decade, thanks to her cousin John Harris she met Stevie Wonder, and began performing as a backup vocalist for his “Wonderlove”, until 1975, a boost to her net worth.
Upon leaving, Deniece signed a contract with Columbia Records, and released her debut album “This Is Niecy” in 1976. The album’s single entitled “Free” peaked at No. 2 on the Black Singles chart, as well as No. 1 on the British singles chart. Another hit single from the album “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Two years later, she released with Johnny Mathis her album “That’s What Friends Are For”, that achieved both gold status by RIAA, and gold status by BPI, which added a considerable amount to her net worth.
During the next decade, Deniece released “My Melody” (1981) via the American Recording Company (ARC), and it achieved gold certification; the hit single of the album was “Silly”. In 1984 out came “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, achieving platinum status by RIAA and the title song peaked No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, also being used in the soundtrack for the film “Footloose” (1984), increasing her net worth by a large margin.
To speak further about her musical career, Deniece tried herself as a gospel singer, recording one song for each of her studio albums. Subsequently, she performed alongside Billy Davis, Maruly McCoo and Philip Bailey at a gospel show called “Jesus At The Roxy” in a Los Angeles club. In 1986, she released her first gospel album entitled “So Glad I Know”, which earned her Grammy Award two times. Notably in both 1991 and ’93 she performed for Pope John Paul, despite her less than catholic lifestyle. Her next gospel album came out in 1999 under the title “This Is My Song”, for which she also won Grammy Award in the category for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. This had a huge influence on her wealth.
Most recently, Deniece released the album “Love, Niecy Style” in 2007, through Shanachie Records label, peaking No. 41 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. In the same year, she recorded the gospel song “Grateful-The Rededication”, which reached success as well, and also increased her fortune.
