Season 4 winner Kevin Skinner might not be as financially successful as some of the other America’s Got Talent contestants, but he’s still got a massive following. When the vocalist won the series, he took home the $1 million prize in an annuity paid out over 40 years. In 2010, Skinner released his debut album Long Ride, but it failed to top the Billboard charts.
