What is Dido’s Net Worth?

Dido is a British singer-songwriter who has a net worth of $16 million. Dido rose to worldwide stardom with her 1999 debut album “No Angel.” The album, which blended her lonesome voice with a lush mix of guitars and electronics, sold over 21 million copies worldwide and won many awards. It spawned the hit “Here With Me,” which was also used as the theme for the TV show “Roswell.”

Dido’s next release, “White Flag,” came three years later and was a monster hit thanks to hit singles “White Flag” and “Life for Rent.” In 2010 Dido’s song “If I Rise” was nominated for an Oscar after it was featured in the movie “127 Hours.” Dido’s anthemic vocals got another boost when her song “Thank You” was sampled by rapper Eminem on his 2000 single “Stan.”

Early Life

Dido was born on December 25, 1971 in Kensington, London, England and given the name Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O’Malley Armstrong. Her mother Clare, was a French poet, while her father, William, was an Irish publisher and former managing director of Sidgwick & Jackson. She grew up with her older brother, Rowland, who later became a record producer. Both Dido and her brother were known from childhood by the names Dido and Rollo. Dido attended Thornhill Primary School in Islington, Dallington School, City of London Girls’ School, and Westminster School. She also was enrolled at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and had learned to play the recorder, piano, and violin by the time she reached her teens. After her secondary education, she studied law at Birkbeck, University of London while working as a literary agent. She never completed the degree and decided to focus on her music career.

Career

In 1995, Dido began recording regularly which resulted in the ten-track collection “Odds & Ends.” She sent these recordings to Nettwerk and was signed soon thereafter. She was signed in the United States in late 1996 and was also signed to Cheeky Records, her brother Rollo’s independent record label. She began working on her debut album, “No Angel.” To promote the upcoming album, she toured with Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair tour, which helped her gain traction in the United States. One of her tracks, “Here with Me,” was also chosen as the theme music for the show “Rowell.” Her following in the U.S. continued to grow after American rapper Eminem sampled her track “Thank You” in his hit single “Stan.” She also appeared in the music video for “Stan.”

“No Angel” went on to become one of the top-selling albums of 2001 worldwide. It spawned two top ten singles and was certified platinum in thirty-five countries. Dido began working on her next album, “Life for Rent,” soon afterward. It was released in 2003 and included the hit single “White Flag.” She embarked on a sold-out world tour in 2004 and also performed at three of the Live 8 concerts in London in 2005.

In 2008, Dido released her third album, “Safe Trip Home.” She had been working on the album since 2005 and featured contributions from Brian Eno, Questlove, Mick Fleetwood, Matt Chamberlain, and her brother. The album did not sell as well as Dido’s first two albums, which was partially why she chose not to tour with it. Additionally, much of the album dealt with challenging topics related to her father’s death. The album received a nomination for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
