- Adam Lambert has insured his voice for a whopping $47 million (€36.2 million)
Adam Lambert is thinking ahead, to the worst possible situation that may befall him. The singer, who rose to fame on American Idol even though he did not win that season, has insured his voice for a whopping amount.
Sources say for The Sunday Mirror that Adam took out an insurance policy on his voice for $47 million (€36.2 million), NineMSN reports.
“Insurance for stars is a big deal in the US and Adam’s voice is his bacon. He had it insured last week,” an insider claiming to be well in the know with the situation says.
Now, without sounding like a fangirl (even though some of you could argue that I am one and I will not contradict you), if I were Adam, this would seem like a logical step for me as well.
When you have one of the most impressive voices of our times and are a huge star like he is, why not take steps to ensure you’re covered should the worst happen?
If you’re not familiar with Adam’s work, below is just one instance of his amazing ability of rendering emotion in its purest form.
That voice needs to be insured. As Roger Taylor of Queen said, it's one in a hundred million. I could listen to him forever. His range is unbelievable. Adam knows how to take care of his voice but you never know what can happen.

It's amazing to me that Adam's "management" decides to insure his voice for $47 Million, yet they do not promote his voice. I guess they are too busy promoting those other "voices" that pale in comparison to Adam's.

Have to say first, love the entire TRESPASSING album, but Underneath is one of my favorites. I can never listen just once.
Now about the story, good for Adam. His voice is totally amazing and he seldom does a concert without going all out. Hearing him live, no matter how much you have heard his recordings, is a revelation. The purity of his voice, the joy he inspires is incredible, and the boy never sings a song the same way twice, so even if you go to 8 concerts on a tour (ahem!) it is never a "hohum" experience. Too fangirly? Tough!! ha

No such thing as "too fangirly" where Adam is concerned, Patsy! The man is simply a walking miracle - ESPECIALLY when he's performing live. :)

You are so right. The entertainment industry is a business, if you can't deliver the product you won't be paid and all the collateral beneficiaries won't be paid either. A lot is riding on this young man's voice and insurance makes total sence.

There are many great singers out there, but there is no one like Adam. He has an amazing voice like no one else. That was a very good decision on his part. I love ever song and performance that Adam does.
