Paul Anka Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Paul Anka was born on July 20, 1941 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The music genre he works on is pop music. He came into prominence with a few hits, and one of the most popular ones is called Diana, released in 1957, of which many millions of copies were sold, thus making Paul a very popular personality, especially among teenagers. Following this success, Paul Anka added great revenues to his net worth from writing hits for such celebrities as Frank Sinatra, and Tom Jones. In 1974 Paul’s fame was renewed with You`re Having my Baby, a duet with Odia Coates that reached the top positions in several charts around the world.

So just how rich is Paul Anka? Sources estimate that Paul’s net worth is $60 million, mostly earned from his music career including 120 albums released, but from songwriting and acting too.

Paul Anka Net Worth $60 Million

Paul Anka is of Lebanese and Canadian descent. His parents were Andy and Camelia Anka; his father had a restaurant and as a child Paul helped his father a lot in running this business. His father`s restaurant was a common meeting place for famous businessmen, politicians and journalists. However, Paul Anka always had the dream of becoming a singer one day, so at the age of 15 he moved to live in Los Angeles, where his uncle took care of him. Later on, Paul moved to New York City, where he succeeded soon after he arrived, when he met an executive from ABC/Paramount Records named Don Costa. Anka was offered a contract as the producer was delighted with Paul`s talent: Paul Anka’s net worth started growing, as this was the time when Diana was released, written for a particular girl Paul knew. Anka was only 16 years old when this single was released, and it reached the top of many charts around the world. Other famous songs have included Put Your Head on my Shoulder, and Lonely Boy.

In the 1960s his music style was not so popular since everybody started listening to the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Paul started writing songs of Rat Pack-style, and became well known in Florida and Las Vegas for his songwriting. Paul Anka is the writer of the theme song of Johnny Carson’s “The Tonight Show”: this song earned Anka from $800,000 to $900,000 pa in  royalties at the height of the show’s popularity.

As for his acting career, Paul has appeared in such movies as “Let`s Rock, Verboten!”, “Girls Town”, “The Private Lives of Adam and Eve”, “Look in Any Window”, and “The Seasons of Youth”. His TV credits include “The Red Skelton Hour”, “Kojak”, “Elvis in Concert”, “The Paul Anka Show”, “The Fall Guy”, “Crime Story”, “Perry Mason: The Case of the Maligned Mobster”, “Shake, Rattle and Rock!”, and “Las Vegas”. There is no doubt that Paul Anka’s net worth has been boosted considerably from his career in films, and from many TV shows including those which he has hosted.

As for his personal life, Paul Anka has been married twice, firstly to Anne de Zogheb, a model of Parisian and Egyptian descent, from 1963-2001, and with whom Paul has five daughters. From 2008-2010 Paul was married to Swedish model and actress Anna Aberg, 30 years his junior, with whom he has a daughter.

#Quote
1[on the effect of exploring rhythm and rhyme in the classics] People always respect Shakespeare, and the play's the thing. I stayed very viable as a writer, and my cred stayed very real. It separated me from all those other kids I grew up with.
2There's been a lot of songs, a lot of notes, but there was nothing like writing for Ol' Blue Eyes.
3[in his seventies, post-'Rat Pack'] I subscribed to the fact that what I did back then could come back and haunt me. So I eat a certain way, I exercise, I don't drink heavy liquor, I don't smoke, I rest my voice. Little things that help me overpunch my weight.
4The worst thing you can do is predicate your life on making money and then saying 'I'm quitting', because then you die. You stand still. They throw dirt on you.
5I harken back to Sinatra. He said, 'Kid, I always get excited about putting a record out and having a hit'. And I absolutely subscribe to that. In my mind, I haven't put my flag in the mountain. I do it to stay healthy and to stay aware and I don't want to ever just sit back. It's a great life. It's a great occupation. I just want to stay on this journey.
6[on Justin Bieber's dealing with early celebrity] You've gotta realize, none of us were born sophisticated. You get lucky at a young age, you have a God-given talent, and you're crawling and absolutely moaning and learning as you take that voyage in life. C'mon. You can't tell a kid who just got a cheque for $150 million. I don't care how smart he is.
7[as a youngster, performing between exotic dance numbers] I used to hang out in the dressing room and dig holes in the walls with the pocket knife I carried around with me so I could ogle the girls.
8[on Frank Sinatra's unpredictable personality] If you went to dinner with Frank, you took your passport.
9I had this talent for these stupid little teenage songs.
