Today marks Geri Halliwell's 41st birthday. The English pop singer and songwriter, clothes designer, author and actress is best known for her role as Ginger Spice of the 1990s group, the Spice Girls. Halliwell left the group due to depression and other issues and launched a solo career in 1998 with her album Schizophrenic. In 2001 she released the album Scream If You Wanna Go Faster, followed by 2004's Passion. Although she was quite the successful solo artist in the United Kingdom, she returned with the Spice Girls in 2007 for the Return of the Spice Girls tour.
The Spice Girls, comprised of Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), joined together in 1994. With the release of their first single, they were instant teen pop sensations. The group promoted messages of strength, power and independence and were great role models for young girls. Still today, they top the all-time list of best-selling girl groups.
