Royals prospect Brady Singer surprises parents by paying off their debt for Christmas Royals prospect Brady Singer made a Christmas memory his family will remember for the rest of their lives. In June, the Royals selected Singer with the 18th overall pick and he received a $4.25 million signing bonus. Six months later, Singer used a chunk of that money on an amazing Christmas gift for his parents: He paid off their house and wiped out all of their debt. Singer on Tuesday shared a video of his parents receiving the gift. He wrote a letter to them, which his mother, Jacquelyn, read as his father, Brett, listened.
