How Did Brendon Urie make his money?
Brendon was born on April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. He is the youngest out of five kids.

Panic! at the Disco ended up getting signed under Decaydance Records – the first band to be signed under the label that was manned by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy. Since then, Brendon Urie and his band of constantly rotating members have released 5 massively popular albums, and have collaborated with Fall Out Boy, among other popular bands. In the last couple years, Brendon has acted in the Broadway play Kinky Boots, and also sang “Not a Simple Sponge” for the Spongebob Squarepants musical.

He said later that it made him “addicted to charity.” After that stint, Brendon along with the other members of Panic at the Disco made a special T-shirt that they sold during their tour. Anyone who bought that shirt was actually donating to the Human Rights Campaign as all the proceeds from it went to the charity.
