Tracy Chapman Net Worth $8 Million
Tracy Chapman was born in Cleveland, but the family moved to Connecticut when she was small, where she attended Wooster School. She was raised in a middle class family, by her father and mother, who spotted her talents in music, so bought her guitar, and at the age of eight started writing songs. After graduation from high school, she enrolled at Tufts University in Boston, from where she graduated with a BA degree in African studies and Anthropology. Side by side with her studies, she began singing at local coffeehouses with several other artists, which led her to record songs for the college radio station WMFO, and that was only the beginning of her career as a musician, and the start of her net worth.
Tracy Chapman’s big break came in 1987, when she met the manager of Elektra Records, Charles Koppelman, who signed her immediately. Her debut self-titled album came out the next year, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 chart. The album achieved six times platinum certification and won the Grammy Award in the category Best Contemporary Folk Album, increasing her net worth to a large degree, and also giving a boost to her popularity. Since then her career has gone only upwards – she has so far released eight studio albums, one greatest hits compilation and has 22 singles, including “Fast Car” for which she won the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance Grammy Award in 1989, “Give Me One Reason” for which she won the 1997 Grammy Award of Best Rock Song, “Baby I Can Hold You”, “America”, among many others.
Tracy’s second album was released in 1989, entitled “Crossroads”, entering into the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 9, and was ultimately certified platinum.
Her career had just begun, but Tracy had made a name for herself, however, her third album wasn’t as popular as the previous two, although released in 1992 under the title “Matters Of The Heart”, it eventually reached Gold certification, which still added a lot to her overall net worth.
Tracy’s next album was a complete success, reaching five times platinum certification, boosting her net worth immensely, and entitled “New Beginning”, debuting in the 4th place on the Billboard 200 chart.
As of the present day, Tracy has released four more studio albums, but with lesser critical a claim, failing to enter the chart at high positions; “Telling Stories” (2000), “Let It Rain” (2002), “Where You Live” (2005), and “Our Bright Future” (2008). Anyway, the sales of the albums have certainly added to her net worth.
Regarding her personal life, although Tracy Chapman has never declared her sexual orientation, the media suggest that she was in a relationship with Alice Walker, a novelist during the ’90s. Her personal life is obviously private. Tracy is also recognized as an activist, who has performed with several organizations, such as Circle of Live and San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

|1||"Who knows? Songwriting is a very mysterious process. It feels like creating something from nothing. It's something I don't feel like I really control. I'm never sure if: 1) I'll ever write another song, 2) what the song will be about and 3) if what initially sparked the beginning of a song might complete it. Some things remain fragments, just the lyrics and melodies or a line or two or a verse. I often write either really early in the morning, just when I'm waking up, or really late at night. "You're the One" was a song that came to me in the morning. I woke up on my birthday, March 30, and wrote that song." - When asked 'What was the inspiration behind "You're the One?"'|
