What is Damiano David net worth?
Damiano David is an Italian musician who has a net worth of $4 million. Damiano David is best known for being the lead singer of the Italian rock band Maneskin. Maneskin won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021.
David was born in Rome, Italy on January 8, 1999. His parents, Daniele David and Rosa Scognamiglio, are both flight attendants. Due to his parents’ job, David and his older brother traveled extensively from an early age, which gave them an appreciation of different cultures.
When David was six years old, he started singing. In high school, he became friends with Victoria De Angelis and Thomas Raggi. They would eventually form the Maneskin Group. He also enjoyed playing basketball in his youth. Until he was 17 and decided to devote himself to singing, he played point guard at the local basketball club, Eurobasket Roma. He credits basketball for helping him develop the discipline needed to succeed in other areas of his life.
David was studying at Eugenio Montale High School in Rome for high school but ultimately decided not to complete his studies in order to pursue a career in music. Fortunately, he had the support of his parents to make this choice.
Initially, when David auditioned to be in Maneskin, he was rejected because his overall style was considered too pop. However, he was determined to be part of the group and was eventually accepted. The name of the group is inspired by the Danish heritage of Victoria De Angelis and means moonlight in Danish.
The group started out playing the streets of Room in 2016. They rose to prominence the following year when they auditioned for the Italian version of the talent show ‘X Factor’. They were fan favorites and placed second in the competition. Following their success, the band released their breakthrough first studio album, “Il ballo della vita” in 2018. They then toured for much of 2018 and 2019. They released their second studio album, “Teatro d’ira : Vol. I,” in 2021.
In March 2021, Maneskin took part in the Sanremo Music Festival, a television song contest held in Italy. They eventually won the contest. On the strength of his victory in May 2021, Maneskin then participated in the 65e edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, representing Italy. They competed against 38 other countries and were ultimately victorious, winning the entire competition with the song “Ziti e buoni”.
The competition was not without controversy, however. During a televised green room segment during the finale, David was seen hunched over a table. This led some fans to claim he was snorting a line of cocaine, although no actual evidence of the drug was seen in the video. The group were then asked about the allegations, which they all vehemently denied. They later posted on their social media account that they were anti-drugs and ready to take a drug test. The European Broadcasting Union later released a statement confirming that no drug use had taken place in the Green Room after David provided a negative drug test and all footage was inspected.
In an interview for Vogue Italia, David further confirmed his anti-drug views and said that the band’s creativity comes from a sane and clear-headed state of mind.
In 2021, David voiced a character in the film “Cruella” and also sang a cover of the Stooges song “I Wanna Be Your Dog” for the film.
David has been praised for his style and charisma. Some have speculated that Maneskin wouldn’t be so successful without David’s unique style and vocal ability. In 2017, during the “X Factor” competition, David was praised for being a true leader. His vocal style has been described as dynamic, allowing him to handle multiple genres and ranges. Stylistically, her fashion sense is often androgynous and combines hippie, vintage and 1970s glam rock for her on-stage looks. For this he has become an icon of Italian fashion.
David has been in a relationship with Italian model and influencer Giorgia Soleri since 2019. He is fluent in English and also speaks some French and Spanish. He was a strong advocate for LGBTQ rights and also spoke out against racism.
David is interested in Greek mythology and has a tattoo of wings and a quote referring to the character of Icarus on his hip. He also references Greek mythology in his social media usernames. David is also a fan of AS Roma football club.
