The Riches of Hali’a Beamer
How rich is Hali’a Beamer? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is close to $100,000, earned through a short but successful career online. Her endeavors has led her to numerous opportunities, as she’s lip synced to songs from various popular artists. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Hali’a is growing-up in a very close and happy family based in Hawaii. According to her, early childhood was a lot of fun, and she developed a strong passion for music at a young age. She was always supported by her brother and mother, who would later help her with her online career. She began her foray into the online world when she created an account on Instagram.
Instagram is a photo/video sharing website and is one of the most used social networking services in the world. It is owned by Facebook and has over a billion registered users and over 500 million users daily. One of the reasons for its popularity is due to its integration with other social networks as well as its ease of use. Users can easily edit their photos through filters and can organize them based on locations or tags. It has rapidly gained popularity since 2010 and has survived criticisms towards its abrupt changes in policy as well as towards its interface.
Musical.ly and TikTok
While Beamer was gaining a bit of popularity on Instagram, her fame really took off when she created an account on Musical.ly. It was a social media service that allowed users to share short videos ranging from 15 seconds to a minute. Popular videos on the service were often lip syncing music videos, as sound tracks could easily be added to accompany one’s video. The video can also be edited through different speed options, effects, and filters. Users could browse popular content and during the peak of its popularity, it had over 200 million users. She shared her first video on the service to Instagram and her fame on both platforms started increasing significantly.
Musical.ly only lasted for so long however, as during 2017 the service was bought by ByteDance and was merged with TikTok. The app was originally catered for the Chinese market, before a more international reach. Users can create short videos ranging from three to 15 seconds or looping videos ranging from three to 60 seconds. It has become the leading short video platform in several parts of the world, including Asia and the US.
Following a significant rise to fame, the advertising agency MDME contacted Hali’a and quickly signed her to their organization. The company started working on promoting her, and getting her more projects in the country. The fledgling company would also benefit themselves with the association of an internet celebrity. She did a ‘meet and greet’ fans in Honolulu shortly afterwards. Which was successful, and a few months later began working with talent agent Matt Dugan, who is also a producer and manager, known for his work in the entertainment industry.
In recent months, she’s been less focused on her short form videos, though she still does them from time to time. She’s done a lot of video work on her YouTube account which focuses on beauty, fashion, and video blogs (vlogs). She’s also travelled to other parts of the US as a part of her endeavors. She’s attracted a bit of controversy with a few of her videos, particularly her promotion of her TikTok account on which she can be seen lip syncing a Ty Dolla Sign song. Critics quickly tried to pull her down, as it was controversial for her to use the intellectual property of others to promote herself.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, at the age of 14 presumably Beamers’ romantic relationships are still in the future. She is no doubt busy enough developing her career and completing her education.

Her Instagram account has grown to have over 900,000 followers, mainly posted with a lot of personal photos, including selfies and photos showcasing her travelling ti various locations or going to events. She also has a Facebook page which has photos taken during shoots. She updates her account on a semi regular basis, often with new pictures. Her Twitter account was active up to early-2019, but she hasn’t posted anything new for over three months. The inactivity comes in line with her recent travels in the mainland US. Despite that, her channel has managed to gain over 400,000 subscribers, but her account on TikTok is still the strongest, with over 5.4 million fans.
