Abraham Quintanilla Jr Net Worth
Abraham Quintanilla Jr Net Worth: Abraham Quintanilla Jr, is an American singer, songwriter and record producer who has a net worth of $10 million. Born on February 20th 1939 in Corpus Christi, Texas, he aspired to become a professional singer since his early childhood. Thus, he dropped out of high school as a senior to start a singing career. It was in the late 1950´s that he joined a Mexican-American Doo-Wop music troop called Los Dinos. Successful and appreciated all over the United States and Mexico, the band recorded twenty 45s and six LP records until their split in 1974. In the meantime, he became a family man and dedicated himself fully to bringing up his three children, his son Abraham Quintanilla III, and two daughters, Selena and Suzette Michelle Quintanilla. Over the years, he remained fully concentrated on building the musical abilities of his own children. In order to establish his family troop, he created a special music oriented Mexican American restaurant in the beginning of 1982. However, the restaurant locked out soon and he became the manager of his own children and invested his time to make live concerts. Selena, who was murdered in 1995 by Yolanda Saldivar, was the most talented. Struck genuinely by the death of his daughter, he decided to close the family troop and opened The Selena Foundation as a charitable organization.
