What is Sara Dallin's net worth?

Sara Dallin is an English singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $8 million. Sara Dallin is best known for being a founding member of the group Bananarama.

Bananarama formed in 1981 and released their debut studio album "Deep Sea Skiving" in 1983. That album reached #7 on the U.K. charts. Bananarama's discography comprises 11 studio albums, numerous compilation albums, and over 30 singles. To date band has sold over 40 million records worldwide. Their catalog includes several chart-topping singles such as "Cruel Summer," "Venus," "I Heard a Rumour," and "Love in the First Degree." These hits have secured their place in pop music history and have consistently been featured in various media, including films and advertisements. While the band has been nominated for several awards, including the Brit Awards for Best British Single, they earned their first recognition in the Guinness Book of World Records as the all-female group with the most chart entries globally.

Early Life

Sara Elizabeth Dallin, born on December 17, 1961, in Bristol, England. Alongside her childhood friends Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey, Dallin co-founded Bananarama in 1981. The trio brought a fresh energy to the music scene, blending pop music with post-punk and new wave elements, a formula that would eventually lead to their breakout success. Bananarama's debut single, "Aie a Mwana," set the tone for their distinctive sound, and the group's lively spirit was quickly noticed, leading to a contract with Demon Records.

The year 1984 marked the turning point for Bananarama when their self-titled second album catapulted them to fame. The album featured "Cruel Summer," a catchy pop single that quickly rose through the ranks, peaking at number 9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. The trio's success continued to grow, and their collaboration with the production trio Stock Aitken Waterman for the 1987 album "Wow!" solidified their place in pop music history. This period produced major hits like "Love in the First Degree" and "I Heard a Rumour."


Bananarama experienced a significant change in 1988 when Fahey left the group, leading Dallin and Woodward to continue as a duo, later adding Jacquie O'Sullivan to their lineup. Despite this shift, the band continued to thrive, producing numerous hits throughout the late 80s and early 90s, including their memorable cover of The Beatles' song "Help!" for Comic Relief. Following O'Sullivan's departure in 1991, Dallin and Woodward chose to continue as a duo, releasing several albums over the next two decades and maintaining the essence of Bananarama.

Dallin's talent extends beyond her work with Bananarama. She has co-written many of the band's songs, demonstrating her versatile skills as a musician. While she has never pursued a solo career in the traditional sense, her unique voice and songwriting skills have made significant contributions to the group's discography and musical style.

In 2017, fans were thrilled when the original Bananarama lineup announced a reunion tour, aptly named the "Original Line-up Tour." Dallin, alongside Woodward and Fahey, gave performances that were met with widespread acclaim, reviving the energy and excitement that Bananarama was known for in its prime. The reunion served as a reminder of the band's significant influence on pop music and solidified its enduring legacy.

Sara had a child with a former Banarama dancer named Bassey Walker in 1991. They did not remain together.
