As part of the biggest girl band the world has ever known, Melanie Chisholm AKA Sporty Spice, is a household name all over the planet. Melanie has gone on to have her own amazingly successful solo pop and theatre career.
In 1996, their debut single “Wannabe” hit number one in 37 countries, establishing the global phenomenon that was the Spice Girls. The girls went on to have an incredible 9 No.1 singles in the uk alone, selling over 31 million albums worldwide. After the band split, Melanie had 2 UK number ones of her own, while establishing herself as a solo artist around the world. Last year, after a 4 year hiatus, she released her 7th studio album, the critically acclaimed “Version Of Me”. She toured the same album throughout the UK and Europe in 2017.
Melanie has had great stage success, picking up an Olivier Award nomination for her incredibly well received role in “Blood Brothers”, while also playing Mary Magedeline in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hugely successful 2008 production of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. She also experienced TV success as a judge on the BBC1 Saturday night show “Superstar” that chose the lead role of Jesus.
In the last year Melanie has also become a BBC Radio 2 favourite, regularly covering for the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Zoe Ball.
