Faith Evans Net Worth $3 Million
Faith Renee Evans was born on June 10, 1973, in Newark, New Jersey, US. Both of her parents were musicians, so Faith also decided to try her talent in this sphere of the entertanment industry. In 1993 Evans changed her location and started to live in Los Angeles, where she was trying to gain popularity among the viewers. Excluding several inconsequential performances, Faith Evans made her first serious debut in 1994. At that time Faith’s net worth increased for the first time because of her contract: she was the first female in the history of Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment who made a deal with them. After this step her musician’s career started to rise – she was able to release three albums which were considered Platinum during the period from 1995 to 2001. Her album titles are known to be associated with the name of the musician, that’s why the first one released in 1995 was entirled “Faith”, the next one entitled “Keep the Faith” appeared in music stores in 1998, and the third platinum album “Faithfully” was as successful as the previous two. So Faith Evans’ net worth rose rapidly after three Platinum albums were released in the six years period.
As an actress Evans was also able to build a great amount of net worth after her appearances in movies. For example, she played Maryann Hill in the movie entitled “The Fighting Temptations” which was directed by Jonathan Lynn. She also performed in “Turn It Up” – a film directed by Robert Adetuyi which was able to gross more than 1 200 000 dollars during the theatrical run in the United States.
Talking about her personal life, she was dating and later married Christopher George Latore Wallace, who was murdered on March 9, 1997. After the death of her first husband Faith Evans started to date Todd Russaw. Their firstborn was named Joshua, and after the marriage to her second husband another child Ryder Evan Russaw was born.
During her period of active life in show business, Faith Evans’ net worth rose steadily and she also built a reputation of a successful female rapper. Today she continues her career and continues earning even more money, so who knows, maybe after several more years Evans’ net worth would be twice as big as today.

[on her parents and her name] Everybody wasn't always too big on my mother having me. I believe at least probably my father. I don't think he wanted her to have the baby. So I really think that's what made her name me Faith. She had to keep the faith.
