British singer known as Sporty Spice and Mel C.; one of the commercially created singing teams known as The Spice Girls. The five girls were selected from auditions on 3/04/1994. Prior to her big break, Sporty had sang in stage musicals. She is the daughter of show biz folks; her dad managed a tour and her mom had a cabaret act. An athletic young girl, Chisholm liked soccer and karat and took on the persona of a tracksuit-clad, back-flipping member of the group. At age 16, she set her sights on a dance career, and was accepted at the Doreen Bird Dance School in Sidcup, Kent. There she exhibited strong technical skills, worked hard and achieved good grades; upon her graduation, she was set to take her love of dance into the professional realm. She auditioned for the part of Rumpleteazer in the musical "Cats," but didn’t get the role. An ad in a trade magazine changed the direction of her life, and she was soon performing, recording hits and touring the world as one of The Spice Girls.
The 5'6" hazel-eyed Chisholm, whose sultry voice made her stand out from the other Spice Girls, works hard to keep toned and fit and doesn’t smoke. Usually described as likeable, quiet and down-to-earth, she changed after joining the band. She had her nose pierced, got a tooth capped in gold and got tattoos on her arms and lower back. Sporty flirts with the lesbian community while denying that she is gay.
While reveling in the fame she attained as part of the group, she pursued her solo career as well. In 1998, she collaborated with Bryan Adams on "When You’re Gone," and later released her first solo single, "Goin’ Down," which hit number four on the charts in 1999. A self-described workaholic, Chisholm, talking about juggling two careers, said, "It will be hectic, but I like hectic. But I’ve got something else to prove, which is why I’m so determined to see my solo stuff work." She announced in 2001 that she did not want to be part of the Spice Girls any more. She has another solo LP scheduled for May 2001.
The other girls are:
GINGER (Geri Haliwell), 8/06/1972. An ex-topless model and the daughter of a car dealer and cleaning-woman, Ginger is the most ostentatious. She drooped out of the group in 1998.
BABY (Emma Bunton) 1/21/1976, was formerly a karate teacher and the daughter of a milkman. She is a wannabe actress.
SCARY (Melanie Jane Brown) 5/29/1975, has a dad who works for an engineering firm and a mom who is a cleaning-woman. She and Jimmy Gulzar have been exchanging volleys in the press about the 1999 breakup of the 15-month marriage. He blames her duplicity over her secret breast-implant surgery, saying he feared it would prevent her from breast-feeding their daughter Phoenix Chi, born in March 1999.
POSH (Victoria Adams) 4/17/1974, was working as a dancer on TV shows. She is the daughter of a businessman and housewife. She and soccer player David Beckham parented a baby boy on 3/04/1999 and married on 7/04/1999, blowing a reported $800,000 on the festivities, a day that included fireworks, footmen and an 18-piece orchestra playing Spice Girl hits.
