Selling and Deceased

Artists profit off of many things such as albums, merchandise, and tours. These factors allow artists to make thousands and eventually millions of dollars. When an artist passes away these things are still sold through their estate. Michael Jackson is the artist with music that just keeps on giving. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes Michael Jackson as the Highest-Earning Deceased Artist. Though Jackson has accomplished a lot while alive, he has managed to break records while at peace as well. During the first year of his death, Jackson’s estate ranked in with $1 billion dollars.

    That’s so crazy to think about- someone continuing to earn money even after they’ve past away. At that point, I wonder where the money goes. It’s interesting stuff. Great post!

    This is the crazy think about being an artist: you are more valuable death than alive. Didn’t know Guinness Book recognizes Michael Jackson as the Highest-Earning Deceased Artist.
