7. Michael Jackson, 8
The King of Pop and his older brother Jermaine became lead singers of The Jackson 5 when Michael was only 8. He later went solo and achieved his first solo No.1 at the age of 13 with "Got to Be There". Michael had a net worth of over $1 billion at the end of his career… now that’s a child prodigy all right!
