The life story of Ester Dean is not unlike any fairytales or miracles but about strong willpower and ambition. Born in a middle-class family to a single mother, no one had hope that Easter would be a renowned pop singer of Hollywood today.
She was raised in poverty with no proper facilities or upbringing. So to kill the pain and sorrow, she used to enroll with music and songs writings which later became her greatest strength.
Ester had left her home when she was only 20 years with just $500 in her pocket. Despite that, she fought with every bit to pursue her career in singing. Thankfully, her continuous effort was noticed by music producer Tricky Stewart, who later signed her to a publishing deal and provided her way to the stardom. She even earned the name as 'The Song Factory.'
It is inspiring to know that the girl who once had left her home with just $500, today has a massive net worth of $24 million, with her successful musical and acting careers. Moreover, she also has luxurious houses to which she sells through real estate at the most favorable prices.
Till today, she has sold two of her lavish houses, her Oxford Triangle condominium for $1.349 million in 2017 and her Mediterranean style home in Palos Verdes Estates for $3.5 million in 2018.

Later in an interview with Mic in May of 2015, she narrated herself as a black gay woman and stated:
"I'm black, gay and a woman. That line is what it is: I am black, I am a woman and if I wanted to be a lesbian today or tomorrow, I could be. But that's not what determines a person or who they are."
Additionally, she also played the role of a gay in the film Pitch Perfect to which she has no regret, and moreover, she seems proud oh her role in the movie.
Easter could attract anyone with her hypnotizing voice and attractive personality. However, she still enjoyed some good dating advice from her closest friend and the queen of Hollywood, Beyonce.
