Biography

Watford, Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom (1999 – 2005, 2007 – present)

Geraldine Estelle “Geri” Halliwell (born 6th August, 1972 in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom) is an English , personality, writer, and UNICEF ambassador. In early 90’s she was the hostess of a Turkish game show Seç Bakalım (Let’s Make A Deal). She became famous in the late 1990s (under the nickname of “Ginger Spice”) as a member of the girl group the Spice Girls.

As a part of the Spice Girls, Geri released two studio albums, Spice (1996) and Spiceworld (1997) (sales combined are around thirty-five million), a box-office hit film, Spiceworld:The Movie (1997), and performed with the group on the early leg of The Spiceworld Tour (1998).

On May 30, 1998, just before the end of the European tour, Halliwell left the Spice Girls to pursue a solo career. The first official confirmation was an announcement to the media by her solicitor on 31st May.

In 1999, Halliwell released her debut solo album Schizophonic, with lead single “Look at Me”. The single reached number two in the UK, going on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. Further singles from the album, “Mi Chico Latino” and “Lift Me Up”, became UK number ones with the latter outselling Halliwell’s former bandmate Emma Bunton. The fourth single, “Bag It Up”, also reached number one.
