How did Maurice Starr Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on November 19, 1953, in Deland, Florida, Maurice Starr initially launched his music career as a member of The Johnson Brothers. From there, he also joined an electro group called the Jonzun Crew, which consisted of brothers Soni and Michael Jonzun. Wanting to try his hand at a solo career, he released a studio album titled, Flaming Star in 1980. An eight-track project, it gave rise to the songs Dance to the Funky Groove, Come See Me Sometime, You’re The One (What’s Your Name?) and It’s My Life, among a few others.
Not long afterwards he came out with a second album, Spacey Lady. To his dismay, however, it had received minimal success, similar to his debut effort. Wanting to try something different, he eventually created a band, that would perform his songs.
In 1982, the artist discovered New Edition on his talent show. Impressed with their work, he agreed to work on a few songs (e.g. Candy Girl, Is This the End, Popcorn Love) for their debut album. Despite the fact that it was a success, however, creative differences ultimately led the two parties to go their separate ways.
Two years later, he put together a band called New Kids on the Block, which consisted of five teens―Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, and Jordan Knight. By the end of the 80’s, they had released three albums New Kids on the Block, Hangin’ Tough, and Merry, Merry Christmas, all of which were big hits. Before they knew it, the group had become the fastest-rising act in the U.S. In addition to writing their music, Starr also handled the marketing of their merchandise (e.g. posters, t-shirts, etc.).
Since then, the record producer has collaborated with many other artists including Classic Example, Perfect Gentlemen, Tommy Page, Anna, and the Superiors. With that said, none have managed to attain the massive popularity of New Kids on the Block.
As far as other ventures go, Starr has also appeared in a handful of TV specials in the past including Behind the Music, New Kids on the Block: A Behind the Music Special Event, and The Truth About Boybands. Prior to his music career, he even acted in a film called American Hot Wax!
