Geri Halliwell Bio

Geraldine Estelle "Geri" Halliwell (born 6 August 1972) is an English pop singer-songwriter, children's author, actress and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund. Halliwell first became famous in the mid 1990s as a member of the girl group the Spice Girls, which became one of the most successful girl groups of all time, selling in excess of 65 million records worldwide. As a solo artist, she has received four Brit Award nominations, released four number-one singles in the UK (a record, for a British Solo Female Artist, which she has held since 2001).

Halliwell was born in Watford, Hertfordshire to Laurence Francis Halliwell, who was of English/Swedish descent, and his wife Ana María (née Hidalgo), who was of Spanish descent from Huesca, Spain. She grew up on on a council estate in North Watford, Hertfordshire. For a brief time, Halliwell's mother tried to bring her up as a Jehovah's Witness. Halliwell took her A-Levels at Camden School for Girls, obtaining an A-level in English at A grade standard, having taken her GCSEs at Watford Girls Grammar School. Before starting her music career, Halliwell had worked as a nightclub dancer in Majorca (Spain), a model and presenter on the Turkish version of Let's Make a Deal and as a glamour model. Following her rise to fame with the Spice Girls, nude photos of Halliwell were re-published in a number of top-shelf magazines in the UK. During the documentary Spice Girls: Giving You Everything broadcast on UK television on 31 December 2007, Halliwell repeated her claim to have only done 'harmless, topless shots', despite extensive evidence to the contrary, including pictures in her own autobiography.
