The beginning of Aaron Neville’s music career dates back to the mid-1950s when he, alongside his brothers Art, Charles and Cyril, formed The Hawketts. Performing in New Orleans, they first achieved some recognition in 1954 when their single “Mardi Gras Mambo” became a local hit. Parallel to this, Aaron started working on his solo career, and eventually in 1966 released his first hit single “Tell It Like It Is” – which peaked at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart for five weeks and sold over one million copies. Despite this promising beginning, Aaron Neville barely made ends meet and was forced to take on a variety of jobs such as truck driver, dockworker, ditch digger and longshoreman, partly to support his increasing heroin addiction, and even spent some time in prison because of car theft and a burglary.

After serving his time, Aaron Neville released another single, “Over You” which was a moderate commercial success and really marked the new beginning of Aaron Neville’s music career. In 1976, Aaron reunited with his brothers to form a soul band – The Neville Brothers. The group’s eponymous debut album – “The Neville Brothers” was released in 1978 under Capitol Records, and these engagements provided the basis for Aaron Neville future success in music as well as for his net worth.

The real breakthrough in Aaron Neville’s career came in 1989, when he teamed up with Linda Ronstadt. They released the “Cry Like a Rainstorm” album, featuring two Grammy winning hits – “All My Life” and “Don’t Know Much”; with over three million copies sold, the album rated triple platinum, and certainly made a huge, positive impact on Aaron Neville’s wealth in total.

Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Aaron Neville continued to release studio albums, of which The Grand Tour (1993) was rated platinum with several hit singles such as “Everyone Plays the Fool”, “Don’t Take Away My Heaven”, “Can’t Stop My Heart from Loving You” and “Crazy Love”. Doubtlessly, these achievements helped Aaron Neville to add to his overall net worth as well.

In his career now spanning over 60 years, Aaron Neville has released 17 studio albums including the most recent “Apache” (2016), with over 19 hit singles and six compilations. He has collaborated with music legends Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and Anne Murray, who are just some of them.

When it comes to his personal life, Aaron Neville married his teenage sweetheart Joel in 1959, but the marriage ended in 2007 when his beloved wife, with whom he has 3 sons, died from lung cancer.

However, during 2008 photo shooting for People Magazine, Aaron Neville met a photographer Sarah A. Friedman and two years later, in 2010, they exchanged vows in a ceremony which was held in New York City.
