Ronnie Spector Net Worth $1.5 Million
To begin with, the sisters Ronnie, Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley made their first joint performances in 1959, won a talent contest and were regularly on the stage as the Darling Sisters. In 1961, they released their first single, and shortly afterwards they changed their name to The Ronettes. From 1963, The Ronettes were produced by the well known producer Phil Spector (the future husband of Ronnie). With the proven composer Jeff Barry, they wrote an extremely successful single with “Be My Baby” (1963), and what is more, the five following singles in a row landed in the Billboard Top 40, and four of them were also placed in the UK charts. The album “Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes Featuring Veronica” (1965) was not so successful on the charts, but was later ranked 427 of the 500 Best Albums of all Time in Rolling Stone magazine. However, the following singles did not meet expectations. After both Estelle Bennett and Nedra Talley were married in 1966, the group finally split up, but Ronnie’s net worth was established.
Moreover, Ronnie Spector continued her musical career with changing success. In 1973, she united with two other singers as Ronnie and the Ronettes, but then continued solo with her own recordings, in the background accompanied by Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Money, with whom she recorded his biggest hit “Take Me Home Tonight” (1986). In 1999, she released the EP album “She Talks to Rainbows” which was critically acclaimed yet poorly received by public. Then, she collaborated with such bands as The Misfits “Project 1950” (2003) and with The Raveonettes “Pretty in Black” (2005). In 2009, Ronnie released her own album “Last of the Rock Starts” which did not enter the music charts. Recently, Spector released the studio album “English Heart” which peaked in 6th position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
To conclude, all the above mentioned engagements have increased the total size of Ronnie Spector’s net worth.
Finally, in the personal life of the singer, she married Phil Spector in 1968, and they adopted three children. However, the two decided to part ways in 1974. In 1982, Ronnie married Jonathan Greenfield; they have two children, and the family now resides in Danbury, Cennecticut.
