This is How American Singer and Lion King Star Donald Glover Impressively Earned THIS MUCH Last Year!
It’s hard not to love David Glover in all his glory. The man is undoubtedly talented – from acting, singing, rapping, scriptwriting, and comedy, he can do it. But before many people saw his potentials after playing Troy Barnes on the comedy series Community, he was already carving his name in the industry, albeit behind the camera. Fast forward to the present, he is a household name who earns millions of dollars from several top-notch stints.
At a Young Age
Since September last year to September 2019, David, whose stage name is Childish Gambino, has been busy with a lot of projects that earned him a whopping $35 million. This is impressive but not surprising at all, given his being a multi-hyphenate celebrity. If all else, he is destined to be a star because, at a young age, he already showed potential.
In high school, he was the touted “Most Likely to Write for The Simpsons,” an animated satirical series that’s considered as the longest-running show. In 2006, Donald graduated from New York University with a dramatic writing degree. Not long after, Tina Fey saw the man’s talent seeing a spec script for the Fox show.
Donald became a writer for 30 Rock, an NBC sitcom that starred high-caliber comedians like Tina, Tracy Morgan, and Alec Baldwin, which earned him many Writers Guild of America Awards. He also appeared in the show and landed other small roles before he was cast in Community in 2009, where he played his part for five years. Despite leaving the series relatively early to focus on other projects, his move proved to be the right step.
He snatched big roles like in The Martian in 2015, Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017, and Magic Mike XXL in 2015. But arguably his most impressive work is Atlanta, which he didn’t just star in but he was also a director, writer, and producer.
The comedy-drama series, which debuted in 2016, has been widely acclaimed and Donald has won Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Director for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 2017 because of it.
Last year, Childish Gambino took on the role of Lando Calrission in the sci-fi film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Around the same time this hit premiered, David hosted the Saturday Night Live – some of his skits were Barbie Instagram and A Kanye Place. He also coincidentally dropped This Is America, a song that was even more critically received when the music video went live.
The track delved into some of the pressing issues the United States was facing. This Is American had won Donald the Grammy Best Music Video, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Rap Performance. After the success of his song, the star played Simba in the 2019 remake of the Disney animated film The Lion King.
