The Spice Girls

The Spice GirlsThe Spice Girls were probably one of the most influential girl groups of the decade, releasing Wannabe in 1996 (which remains the most successful song ever performed by an all-female group), as well as other hits such as Say You’ll Be There and 2 Become 1. The group formed in 1994 and were together until 2000, however they then reformed in 2007 – only to split up again a year later. Although, in 2012 they did make an appearance at the closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics, and it  is believed it was the last time the Spice Girls will perform together as a five.

The group was made up of five members: Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice).

Their debut album Spice sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. According to Rolling Stone journalist and biographer David Sinclair, “Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty were the most widely recognised group of individuals since John, Paul, George, and Ringo”

Mø, the 25 year old Danish singer, recently covered Say You’ll Be There and performed it at The Secret Garden Party in Abbots Ripton this weekend.
