What is Chubby Checker's net worth? Chubby Checker's net worth is $4 million dollars. Born in Spring Gulley, South Carolina, Chubby Checker, also known as Ernest Evans, grew up in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He formed his first vocal group while in middle school, performing on street corners for change. His boss at the local grocery store where he worked introduced him to a songwriter who worked for Cameo-Parkway Records, and this lead to a meeting with Dick Clark of "American Bandstand" fame. His first single was recorded for Mr. Clark and charted at #38. It was his cover of the dance track, "The Twist", however, that would launch him to lasting fame. The song went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. He went on to record many other dance hits, including "The Huckleback", "The Fly", "Pony Time", and "Let's Twist Again". He also topped the dance charts again in 2008 with the single, "Knock Down the Walls".
Chubby Checker (born Ernest Evans, October 3, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter. He is widely known for popularizing the twist dance style, with his 1960 hit cover of Hank Ballard's R&B hit "The Twist". In September 2008 "The Twist" topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1958.
Ernest Evans was born in Spring Gulley, South Carolina. He was raised in the projects of South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he lived with his parents and two brothers. By age eight Evans formed a street-corner harmony group, and by the time he entered high school, learned to play the piano. He would entertain his classmates by performing vocal impressions of popular entertainers of the day, such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Fats Domino. One of his classmates and friends at South Philadelphia High School was Fabiano Forte, who would become a popular performer of the late 1950s and early 1960s as Fabian.
After school Evans would entertain customers at his various jobs, including Fresh Farm Poultry on Ninth Street and at the Produce Market with songs and jokes. It was his boss at the Produce Market, Tony A., who gave Evans the nickname "Chubby". The store owner of Fresh Farm Poultry, Henry Colt, was so impressed by Ernest's performances for the customers that he, along with his colleague and friend Karl Mann, who worked as a song-writer for Cameo-Parkway Records, arranged for young Chubby to do a private recording for American Bandstand host Dick Clark. It was at this recording session that Evans got his stage name from Clark's wife, who asked Evans what his name was. "Well", he replied, "my friends call me 'Chubby'". As he had just completed a Fats Domino impression, she smiled and said, "As in Checker?" That little play on words ('chubby' meaning 'fat', and 'checkers', like 'dominoes', being a game) got an instant laugh and stuck, and from then on, Evans would use the name "Chubby Checker".
