Born Neil Leslie Diamond January 24, 1941 in New York City, this "Jewish Elvis" has been writing and singing hits since the 1960s. With Neil Diamond's continued success through five decades, his net worth is now estimated at $175 million. Diamond got his start in singing at Erasmus Hall high school, singing in the school choir alongside Barbra Streisand. Although he went to NYU to pursue medicine, during his senior year he began his career in music writing songs for $50 a week for a music publishing company. After a slew of failed singles on Columbia Records, Diamond returned to songwriting at the Brill Building, and topped the charts for Jay and the Americans and the Monkees, with his first great successes with "I'm a Believer" as the most popular song of the year in 1966. Diamond also composed songs for the famed Elvis Presley. Neil Diamond gave his solo career another try in 1966, signing with Bang Records, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records, and began with hits such as "Solitary Man," "Cherry, Cherry," and "Kentucky Woman." He moved to Los Angeles in 1970 and recorded "Sweet Caroline," then hit the touring circuit. In 1972 he released a double live album Hot August Night, which was remastered in 2000 and deemed the best Neil Diamond record to date. Neil Diamond returned to Columbia Records in 1973, signing a new 'million dollar advance per album' contract. His song "America" was the theme to the 1988 presidential campaign, and the reggae ballad "Red, Red Wine" topped the singles charts that same year, and would remain a classic for years to come. Diamond continues to tour and record, and artists such as Johnny Cash, Smash mouth, and the Finnish band HIM have covered his songs. Diamond also released a tour documentary in August of 2009, which aired on CBS, and was released on DVD only to sell out at many locations across the world.
Neil Leslie Diamond (born January 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter with a career spanning over five decades from the 1960s until the present.
As of 2001, Diamond had sold over 115 million records worldwide including 48 million in the United States alone. He is considered to be the third most successful adult contemporary artist ever on the Billboard chart behind Barbra Streisand and Elton John. His songs have been covered internationally by many performers from various musical genres.
Diamond was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Additionally, he received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000 and in 2011 was an honoree at the Kennedy Center Honors. He has eight number one hit singles with "Cracklin Rosie", "Song Sung Blue", "Desiree", "You Don't Bring Me Flowers", "Love on the Rocks", "America", "Yesterday's Songs", and "Heartlight".
Diamond continues to record and release new material and maintains an extensive touring schedule as well.
Neil Diamond was born in Brooklyn, New York, to a Jewish family descended from Russian and Polish immigrants. His father, Akeeba Diamond, was a dry-goods merchant. Diamond grew up in several homes in Brooklyn, attending Abraham Lincoln High School.
At Lincoln, the school from which he received his high school diploma, he was a member of the fencing team. He later attended NYU on a fencing scholarship, specializing in saber, and was a member of the 1960 NCAA men's championship team; into his adult life he maintained his swordsmanship skills and continued to warm up with fencing exercises before his concerts.[citation needed] In a live interview with TV talk show host Larry King, Diamond explained his decision to study medicine by pointing out:
However, during his senior year in NYU, a music publishing company made him an offer he could not refuse: an offer to write songs for $50 a week. This started him on the road to stardom.
