The late recording artist and performer James Brown, otherwise known as "The Godfather of Soul," had an estimated net worth of approximately $100 million when he died. And to go along with his net worth, he had the respect and admiration of millions of his peers and fans. His career, spanning many years, began in a gospel group called The Gospel Starlighters. The group eventually changed their name to The Flames, and toured (with Brown in tow) many venues in the south. The early recordings made during this time show a heavy influence from R&B artists like Little Richard and Ray Charles. From these early days, James Brown eventually evolved into a solo performer, but his music continued to grow and change.

After many tumultuous later years, James Brown died on Christmas Day, 2006.
