THE HIGHEST DEAD EARNERS ANNOUNCED
May 11,  2017   -   Forbes  /   Elvis Express Radio
Once again, the legend that is ELVIS, AKA the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, or simply.... the King, finds himself within the Top 5 of the highest-earning dead celebrities.

Far from diminishing over time, Elvis Presley’s potency as an artist and his uncanny ability to sell records since his death almost 40 years ago has remained a constant. This has
led to $27 million of earnings for his estate in the last 12 months or so.


Presley’s latest album
s, 'If I Can Dream' and the follow-up, 'The Wonder Of You', are a collection of orchestral reworkings of some of his greatest hits. Released toward the end of
2015
and 2016, this body of work spent time at the top of the charts in the United States and the United Kingdom and sold more than 2 million copies in the U.K. alone — most of
these being physical rather than digital. Combined with the sales of his other albums, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll amassed a huge amount of revenue in 2016. Elvis has clearly
mastered the art of staying relevant even in the world of digital sales and music streaming sites and has even enjoyed success in other ventures, as shown by the popular Elvis slot
at CasinoEuro.



The Top 5
1 - Michael Jackson – $825 million
2 - Charles Schulz –  $48 million
3 - Elvis Presley - £27 million
4 - Bob Marley – $21 million                              
5 - David Bowie - £10.5 millionq
