Two months from now, the Spice Girls – the most successful girl group in the world- is set to reunite as a four-piece (minus my favorite Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham).
A few weeks ago, Emma Bunton a.k.a. Baby Spice released a new single entitled “Baby Please Don’t Stop”. Of course, I am happy because to be honest, she has the voice of an angel. I also love it whenever she harmonizes with Victoria or Melanie B in their tracks. That sweet, soothing voice of hers must be heard more.
When the Spice Girls disbanded, most fans (and haters)
tracked on which among the Spice Girls will succeed as solo artists. Twenty
years after, they now have their own families, pursue other passion projects
and have a fair share of controversy.
I am a fan of Emma Bunton’s solo work as a singer especially with her sophomore album ‘Free Me’. This album was released when the Bossa Nova hype is just starting. Sadly, I don’t think the album reached Southeast Asia. Only true fans know the promotional singles which I think did well in the UK and other parts of Europe.
Actually, ‘Free Me’ is one of the albums included in my ‘productivity playlist’. I just listen to some songs and before you know it, I’ve written a full blog post already (which is a struggle sometimes).
Melanie Brown a.k.a. Mel B is one of my childhood heroes. I do think that her Scary Spice persona is still evidently seen in her recent gig as judge of America’s Got Talent. She is fearless, talented and surpassed a lot of trials in her career and even personal life.
For Once In My Life by Mel B
I loved her debut album “HOT” (1999). Her sophomore album “LA State of Mind” had very minimal publicity and the copies of the album are scarce. Imagine how happy I was (and I bet other Spice Girls fans were!) when she all of a sudden announced her new single called “For Once In My Life” via PerezHilton’s website. Woah, this is madness!
Viva Forever, I’ll be Waiting
Everlasting like the sun
Live forever, for the moment
Ever searching for the one..
It is a dream of ever Spice Girls fanatic to watch the Viva Forever! The Musical. It was launched at WestEnd’s Piccadilly Theatre last December much to the excitement of followers like me. Which 90’s kid didn’t love the Spice Girls (or at least one of them) anyway? It may sound crazy to some, but the Spice Girls did inspire me to do better when I was younger. Just watch their videos, listen to the records and viola, Positivity is in the room! The ‘Girl Power!’ tag motivated a lot of women to aim high and work hard to achieve their dreams.
Viva Forever! The Musical at Piccadilly Theatre
Last month, it was announced that the Viva Forever The Musical is about to reach its final show. The members of the band expressed their sentiments regarding the cancellation of the musical play via Twitter. Geri Halliwell even wrote a blog entry about it. It received mixed reviews from the critics, but the Spice Army who saw the show said they enjoyed it and the presentation is not bad as what the others say.
