Dottie Peoples Net Worth $3 Million
To begin with, the girl was raised in Dayton, and started singing at an early age. After matriculation from high school, she was invited to tour with the gospel singer Dorothy Norwood, a member of the band The Caravans. When the tour was finished, she briefly joined a jazz ensemble, and performed at various locations across the US. However, she much preferred gospel, and so returned to Atlanta and her musical roots. Still, her net worth was established.
Concerning her solo career, Peoples released her debut album “Live at Salem Baptist Church” in 1993, which brought her a number of nominations for Stella, Gospel Excellence and Dove Awards among others. In 1995, she released her second studio album “On Time God”, and it won four Stella Awards in the categories of the Female Vocalist of the Year, the Song of the Year, the Album of the Year and Choir of the Year; moreover, Dottie won a Vision and an Atlanta Gospel Choice Award.

In 1997, she became the Female Vocalist of the Year, receiving the America/Gospel Excellence Award, as well as winning three Indie Awards, all helping her net worth.
Even though her popularity declined in the new millennium, Dottie Peoples continued her work, in the beginning of the 2000s releasing three albums – “Show Up and Show Out” (2000), “Churchin’ with Dottie” (2001) and “The Water I Give” (2003).
