Dido Net Worth $15 Million

The electronic pop chanteuse Dido entered London’s Guildhall School of Music at age six; by the time she reached her teens, the budding musician had already mastered piano, violin, and recorder. After touring with a British classical ensemble, she accepted a publishing job. It went on to sell over five million copies globally, and Dido parlayed her newfound success into a solo deal with Arista Records. Dido’s ethereal solo content blended components of acoustic pop and electronica. Dido released her debut LP, No Angel, in mid-1999, and supported the launch by joining the Lilith Fair tour that summer.

Yet, Dido’s biggest break arrived in 2000, when rap superstar Eminem tried one of her tracks, “Thank You,” for the chorus of his hit single “Stan.” The end result was a surprisingly touching song, and demand for the Dido original fast escalated. “Thank You” became a Top Five smash in early 2001, as did the accompanying No Angel, whose album sales topped 12 million copies world-wide by the time Dido returned to the spotlight two years later. In September 2003, “thankyou released her long-awaited follow-up, Life for Rent. This sophomore effort was layered with private adversity and heartbreak, marking some of Dido’s more honest content yet. An eagerly anticipated record, it became certainly one of the fastest-selling albums in U.K. history, rapidly going multi-platinum at home while also moving several million copies in America. Following a world tour, Dido once again retreated in the public eye in 2005 to work with her third solo release. Safe Trip Residence arrived in 2008, featuring collaborations with Brian Eno, Mick Fleetwood, and Citizen Cope.

MoviesEminem: E
1It can be just playing two chords and making up lyrics about what you did that day or putting forward a point of view. That's how I started. It's fun and we ought to get children writing. I don't make political comments but I do want the Government to put music right at the top of the cirriculum. Having that option was vital for me.
2Playing the recorder and taking music lessons was a great escape and helped open up my mind as a child.
3It is much more satisfying to write your own songs. Otherwise you are only as good as the next batch of songwriters. You have to put in the hours too. I did eight tours of the US, playing as many gigs as possible before I was a hit here. As well as being much more satisfying, writing your own songs gives you a better chance of having a longterm career.
4I would not have had the opportunity to achieve what I have done without the encouragement of excellent teachers. Every child must have the opportunity to write songs and learn an instrument.
5It feels like someone's rushed in and taken all your clothes off. - on hearing her songs played in public
6(On her unusual name) "To be called one thing and christened another is actually very confusing and annoying. It's one of the most irritating things that my parents did to me. I'm still irritated by it. Florian is a German man's name. That's just mean. To give your child a whole lot of odd names. They were all so embarrassing."
1Even though her birthday is December 25, she celebrates her birthday on June 25.
2Gave birth to her first child at age 39, son Stanley Gavin, in July 2011. Child's father is her husband, Rohan Gavin.
3She and her husband, Rohan Gavin, are expecting their first child [February 2011].
4Winner of the 2002 Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year.
5Took part in the Band Aid 20 re-recording of "Do They Know It's Christmas?". [November 2004]
6Born in England but considers herself Irish.
7Her debut album, "No Angel", was released in 1999. But only when the TV show Roswell (1999) used her "Here With Me" as its theme and rapper Eminem sampled her "Thankyou" into his "Stan" on his smash, "The Marshall Mathers LP", did Dido gain the attention of mainstream audiences.
8Worked as a literary agent (her father's profession) while going to law school and singing with her brother Roland 'Rollo' Armstrong's band, Faithless.
9Was raised without television.
10Was named after an African warrior queen.
11She entered London's Guildhall School of Music at the age of six.
12Older brother is Roland 'Rollo' Armstrong, from the music group Faithless. Dido provided vocals on their recordings and shows.
13Her song "Thank You" was sampled by rapper Eminem in his controversial hit single "Stan".
14Her first musical instrument was the recorder.
