About Katie Melua
Ketevan “Katie” Melua, a Georgian-British singer and songwriter, was born on September 16, 1984. Her estimated net worth is $20 million. Georgia, a former Soviet republic, is where Melua was born. She relocated with her parents to Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the age of eight, then to London (England). This is a result of her father’s work as a heart expert.
Early in her adolescence, Melua had no interest in becoming a singer. She was more intrigued by politics and history.
Melua was the seventh-richest British singer under the age of 30 in 2008, according to the Sunday Times Rich List, with a net worth of £18 million.
“She is one of the most intelligent singers I’ve worked with for a very long time, – there are little reminders in her voice, of all sorts of other singers like Eartha Kitt and Edith Piaf, – of whom she has never heard. She exudes a modest confidence, is completely sure of herself and has a maturity far in advance of her age.” — Mike Batt
Katie Melua’s family relocated to London from Northern Ireland after five years there. The BRIT School for the Performing Arts & Technology was where she attended. This music industry-supported institution is renowned for producing well-known performers.
She joined a talent contest on the ITV channel when she was 15 just for fun and won singing Mariah Carey‘s “Without You.” At the Brit School of the Performing Arts, Katie Melua finished her education.
Melua was discovered in 2003 by Mike Batt, who was looking for a singer with a jazz and blues preference. Mike Batt is also a singer, lyricist, arranger, and producer. She started working on her debut album Call Off the Search after signing with Batt’s Dramatico label. Terry Wogan, the morning radio host for BBC2, heard Katie Melua’s debut single, “The Closest Thing to Crazy” and his support helped it enter the UK pop top 10.
Katie Melua made the decision to support numerous philanthropic projects as a newly discovered, youthful celebrity. She participated in the “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” re-recording for Band Aid’s 20th anniversary. To participate in the celebrity recording of Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven” for tsunami relief, Sharon Osbourne invited Katie Melua. She visited South Africa in March 2005 as a guest of Nelson Mandela to take part in a sizable performance to raise money for his AIDS foundation.
Piece By Piece, Katie Melua’s second album, was released in the UK in September 2005. She achieved her second straight #1 album with it, and “Nine Million Bicycles.” a top 5 pop hit, was on it. For both 2004 and 2005, Katie Melua was recognized as the female artist in the UK with the most sales. Piece By Piece has already been certified double platinum, and her debut album Call Off the Search achieved six times platinum sales. In June 2006, Piece By Piece will be made available in the US.
In 2012, James Toseland, a World Superbike racer and musician, wed Melua. The couple’s breakup was disclosed in a 2020 interview with the national Swedish news outlet TT. Melua confirmed the divorce in an interview on ITV’s Lorraine live from West London on October 16, 2020.
In 2017, Melua recorded a cover of “Fields of Gold” the tune that serves as the Children in Need theme song. Katie Melua’s net worth is projected to reach $20 million as of 2023.
