Joss Stone – A wealthy woman

From bbcnews.com

The 17-year-old British soul singer, Joss Stone, has rocketed into the list of the richest young musicians, earning an estimated £5m in the past year.

To the uninitiated few, Joss Stone is no more and no less than an unremarkable young woman. Tousle-haired and pretty, like millions of teenage girls, she is unaffected and unassuming, not one naturally to stand out in a crowd.

But put her behind a microphone or on a stage and a staggering transformation takes place. Belying her diffidence and youth, Joss Stone's persona as a singer is sassy and coquettish, her voice rich and deep, knowing and world-weary, just like that of her own idol, the late, great, Janis Joplin.

Her rise to fame has been rapid, even by the "blink-and-you're-gone" standards of modern celebrity.

The girl is a good singer, but £5m at the age of 17? Anyone working in the marketing department of her record label deserves a pat on the back. Ah, to be a young blonde in the music industry (singing voice optional)..
