Our beloved Mel Chisholm AKA Sporty Spice from the greatest 90s pop group ever, The Spice Girls, has officially come into her own. The 46-year singer has released a new album all about self-empowerment and fans couldn’t be more delighted.
Not Just a Spice Girl
Mel C shot to fame in 1996 at 22 when she, along with the rest of the group released their instant hit “Wannabe.” While Mel C had a great run with the group, she was the only one truly determined to set herself apart from the group when they ended in 1998. In 1999 she released her debut album “Northern Star,” she then went onto release six more solo albums.
Recently Chisolm reunited with Ginger, Scary, and Baby for a reunion tour (sadly Posh couldn’t make it.) After the experience, the singer commented on the incredible response from her fans saying ″When I went on stage with the girls, it was such an incredible experience,″ Melanie says in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. ″It made me feel very reflective. I loved being Sporty Spice again, and I realize that she’s such a huge part of who I am as a person and who I am as a performer. I wanted to really celebrate that.″
The New Album
With that behind her, Mel C couldn’t be in a better place emotionally to promote her new solo album which is all about self-love and self-empowerment. In the coming year, the pop star will be gearing up for a European tour. She has also even expressed her interest in another Spice Girls reunion, this time hopefully with Posh on board. She told People ″the whole world supported us back in the ’90s, so I would love to get back and perform everywhere,″ she says. ″Beyond touring my solo music, I would love to do more Spice shows. I think there’s room for both.”
