Richard Marx Net Worth: Richard Marx is an American singer, songwriter and producer who has a net worth of $18 million. Richard Marx was born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois. Marx has sold more than 30 million albums, starting with his self-titled debut which hit No. 8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping Hold on to the Nights, with Don't Mean Nothing earning him a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance-Male. The follow-up, 1989's Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting No. 1 and going quadruple-platinum with two No. 1 singles in Satisfied and Right Here Waiting. When both Rush Street (with two No. 1 AC hits in Keep Coming Back and Hazard) and Paid Vacation (with its No. 1 AC hit, Now and Forever) went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history. To mark the release of Rush Street (1991), he embarked on a 24-hour, five-city blitz on MGM Grand Airlines, performing at every stop, a record that has yet to be broken. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Across all formats, Marx has scored an astounding total of 14 No. 1 singles, both as a performer and songwriter/producer, making him a true multi-talented threat who continues to challenge himself and his fans. His album, 2010's Stories to Tell, produced a Top 20 AC hit in When You Loved Me. In the early years, Marx landed jobs as a background singer for artists such as Madonna, Whitney Houston and Luther Vandross, and finally as a songwriter. Marx continued to pursue his own record deal and was initially on a long streak of rejection by every label in Hollywood until, finally, the president of EMI/Manhattan Records, Bruce Lundvall, heard Marx's demo and knew he had a star on his hands. He gave Marx a recording contract with the awesome freedom to write and record whatever he wanted. Marx contacted his good friend Fee Waybill, front man of The Tubes, and some very talented musicians, including Joe Walsh and Randy Meisner of the Eagles, and created a ten-track album that led to his very successful career.
