How did Sabrina Carpenter Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on May 11, 1999 in Pennsylvania, Sabrina Carpenter grew up in Lehigh Valley with her three sisters, Cayla, Sarah, and Shannon. A natural performer, she was dancing before she could even talk at the age of two! When she was in kindergarten, she sang the song, I Enjoy Being a Girl at her school’s talent show, a performance that earned her a standing ovation at the end. From that point onward, it was decided that she’d be pursuing a career in the show business.
When she was nine years old, she took part in Miley Cyrus’ Are You a Star competition, where she ended up placing third out of over 10,000 competitors. Shortly afterwards, Carpenter began taking voice lessons, striving to perfect her vocals and sound. Around that same time, the blonde also took up the guitar and piano, both of which she’s since mastered to a degree.
Later deciding to get into acting, she made her small screen debut in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 2011. The next year, she voiced a character in the Disney cartoon, Phineas and Ferb (2012), after which she appeared in the made for television films, Gulliver Quinn and The Unprofessional. From there, she landed her first recurring role- albeit in an animated series, in Sofia the First, where she voiced Princess Vivian. It wasn’t until later that summer that she played her first supporting character in the Fox sitcom, The Goodwin Games (2013).
In 2014, Carpenter landed a major role in the Disney Channel sitcom, Girl Meets World. The sequel to the ABC series, Boy Meets World, it revolved around the life of protagonist Riley, and her friends and family. While actor Rowan Blancard played the role of Riley, the actress portrayed the character of her best friend, Maya Hart; the two are joined by Ben Savage, Peyton Meyer, Danielle Fishel, and August Maturo, among others.
The big break that she’d been waiting for, Girl Meets World premiered on June 27, 2014 to 5.16 million viewers. Popular among young viewers, it was later renewed for two additional seasons after the end of season one; in total, the sitcom had run for 72 episodes- all of which featured Carpenter’s character. Although the subsequent seasons weren’t as big of a hit on television as the original, they still managed to maintain a viewership of ~2 million.
Praised for her performance, the teen’s portrayal in the sitcom garnered her a Young Artist Award nomination in 2015, which she shared with the rest of her cast mates. Considering the popularity of Girl Meets World, she would have received a nice paycheck from starring on the Disney show, right? While Carpenter’s salary from the series has never been revealed, her co-star Rowan Blanchard allegedly took home $10,000 per episode. If her pay is anything similar to that, then she would have racked up a considerable amount from the three years that she was on the show.
During the time that she was filming for Girl Meets World, Carpenter also took time to appear in various other projects including Wander Over Yonder (2016), Walk the Prank (2016), and Adventures in Babysitting (2016). In October 2016, she returned to television as a main character in the Disney cartoon, Milo Murphy’s Law. Where as “Weird Al” Yankovic voiced Milo, she provided the voice for her long-time friend, Melissa Milo- the daughter of a local fire chief.
Outside of acting, Carpenter has also appeared on television on several occasions, for instance in Piper’s Quick Picks (2014), Fox and Friends (2014), Teens Wanna Know (2014), Disney 365 (2016), Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition (2016), and Hollywood Today Live (2016).
While it’s obvious that she earned a significant chunk of her fortune from acting, she has another major source income- music. In March 2014, Carpenter released her debut single, Can’t Blame a Girl For Trying via iTunes. Taken from her extended play, the acoustic guitar-drive track has since been listened to over 50 million times on Youtube. Although the record didn’t reach the music charts, it went on to earn her a Radio Disney Music Award for Best Crush Song in 2015.
On April 8, 2014, the singer dropped her debut EP titled, Can’t Blame a Girl For Tryingvia Hollywood Records. Produced by Matt Squire, Brian Malouf, and Julie Frost, the folk pop record contained four titles including, Best Thing I Got, White Flag, The Middle of Starting Over, and Can’t Blame a Girl for Trying. A relative success upon its release, it eventually reached number 16 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album; to date, it has sold over 17,000 copies in the United States.
A year later, Carpenter came out with her first studio album, Eyes Wide Open. Preceded by the lead single, We’ll Be the Stars, it boasted twelve songs including Two Young Hearts, Too Young, Darling I’m a Mess, White Flag, Best Thing I Got, and Seamless. Given positive reviews, the album entered the Billboard 200 at number 43 and the Top Album Sales chart at number 31; it later also reached number 14 on the US Digital Albums Chart. According to Niel Soundscan, more than 12,000 units were sold within the first week.
On October 14, 2016, her second album, Evolution was released via Hollywood Records. Even more successful than her initial endeavor, the 10-track project ended up selling more than 11,500 copies in the first week; some of the songs featured included Feels Like Loneliness, Run and Hide, No Words, All We Have is Love, Don’t Want it Back, and On Purpose. Her best charting record to date, Evolution reached as high as number 28 on the Billboard Top 200; outside of the US, it also charted in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia.
As expected from a popular singer like Carpenter herself, she’s also embarked on a few concert tours over the last two years. For instance, she went on her Evolution Tour, in support of her second album in 2016, after which she hit the roads again for The De-Tour. Aside from those which she’s headlined, she has opened for Arianda Grande and The Vamps in the past.
Speaking of which, the 18-year-old is currently on her Summer 2017 tour- from the looks of it, she’ll be performing at various cities across the country until the end of August. For more information, please visit her official website.
For those who’d like to buy some memorabilia, Carpenter has set up an official store online, where fans are able to purchase items such as tour tees, posters, and LED necklaces.
Now, let’s go back to our original question- where did the star’s $3 million fortune come from? Drawing from everything we’ve said above, one thing’s for sure- she has multiple sources of income (e.g. acting, singing, tours, etc). At the rate that her popularity is exploding, it’s likely that her career will grow into something even greater over the next years.
