Melanie C's Spicey Start

Everyone knows Sporty Spice was part of the former super group the Spice Girls, but these days she's enjoying a successful solo career as Melanie C. Mel C joined with Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Victoria Adams and Geri Halliwell to form the Spice Girls, after they responded to an ad for an all girl group in 1994. Mel C was widely recognized as the most talented of the group and sang most of the lead vocals. Melanie C's trademark style is sporty so that's why she got the name Sporty Spice. Melanie C always wears sports gear and runners and is in really good shape. Melanie C also had the most tattoos in the group.

Melanie C Does It Her Way

In 1998 Melanie C sang a duet with Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. Their song When You're Gone became a huge hit and stayed in the Top 10 for 10 weeks in the UK. This little solo project was a sign of things to come. Sporty wanted to explore a different musical direction and launched a solo career in 1999 with the release of her first CD Northern Star. The CD, with its edgy, alternative rock music, is completely different than anything Spice. Melanie C's second album, Reason, hit stores in Ocotober 2003.

    "Northern Star was a big exploration for me cuz I'd never done a solo record before and I was trying everything out. It was nice to have freedom from the Spice Girls. I was having a go at everything."

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
