Singer/songwriter Bill Withers, who has a net worth of $25 million, has had a career in music that many musicians and artists would kill for. In addition to his net worth, he's been the voice behind many hit songs, such as "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Lean on Me." Withers' career began in 1970, when a demo tape of his earned favor at Sussex Records. As a result of his record deal, his first album, Just as I Am was released in 1971. One of Withers' most popular songs can be found on the album – the aforementioned "Ain't Sunshine." The song was a huge hit, and sent Withers on a whirlwind tour of success in pop music. His next album, Still Bill, was hotly anticipated before it was released just a year after his debut, in 1972. That album contains an even more popular hit for Withers, "Lean on Me." His third million-seller, "Use Me," can also be heard on the album. All three of these hit songs are still heard regularly on the radio and in TV shows and films. Since his peak of success, Withers has continued to work in music, although he did go on a semi-hiatus from recording in the late 70s to spend more time with his family.
