Best known as:

The red-haired "Ginger Spice" of the Spice Girls

Geri Halliwell was an original member of the 1990's pop group The Spice Girls. (Her nickname was Ginger Spice, thanks to her bright red hair, though she was also called Sexy Spice.) The all-female quintet was a worldwide sensation late in the decade, with songs like the chart-topping "Wannabe" and a 1997 movie, SpiceWorld. Geri Halliwell left the group abruptly in May of 1998 and began a successful solo singing career. (Halliwell was the first to leave the Spice Girls, though others did the same and the group went into permanent hiatus.) Her 1999 album Schizo-Phonic included the hit singles "Look at Me" and "Lift Me Up." Her other albums include Scream If You Wanna Go Faster (2001) and Passion (2005). She has also released various singles, including "Half of Me" in 2013, which was said to be from an upcoming fourth studio album. She has written two memoirs: If Only (2000) and Geri: Just for the Record (2003).
