Biography for Emma Bunton

Emma Lee Bunton (born 21 Jan. 1976 (43 years ago)) is an English pop singer, songwriter, and occasional actress. Bunton is best known for being a member of the successful '90s girl group, the Spice Girls, in which she was known as "Baby Spice" as she was the youngest member and often wore revealing "babydoll" dresses.

Early life

Bunton was born in Finchley, raised a Catholic, and grew up in Woodside Park, both in the London borough of Barnet. Her parents, Pauline, a karate instructor, and Trevor, a milkman, split up when she was eleven; she stayed with her mother. She has a younger brother, Paul James. Bunton started off at Underhill primary school, in Barnet. Then Bunton went to the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone; in 1993 (26 years ago) she appeared in the ITV1 police series The Bill and also auditioned (although unsuccessfully) for the role of Bianca (played by Patsy Palmer) in the BBC soap EastEnders; she had previously appeared briefly in the soap in 1992 (27 years ago), as a mugger who attacked the character Jules Tavernier, played by Tommy Eytle.

Spice Girls (1994-2008)

She joined the Spice Girls (then still called Touch) in 1994 (25 years ago) after the original fifth Touch member, Michelle Stephenson left the group. The group became one of the most successful musical acts of the 1990s, selling 35 million albums with studio releases Spice in 1996 (23 years ago), Spiceworld in 1997 (22 years ago), and Forever in 2000 (19 years ago). Emma was called Baby Spice because she was the youngest of the group, wore her long blonde hair in pigtails, wore babydoll dresses, had an innocent smile, and had a girly girl personality. When the group appeared on the Oct. 5, 1997 (22 years ago), episode in the BBC TV programme The O-Zone, she revealed that she had just had her ears pierced for the very first time. Their debut single "Wannabe" became the first of a string of number ones in the United Kingdom (nine in total) and reached the top position in thirty seven countries around the globe. As a songwriter, Bunton - as part of the Spice Girls - set the record for the shortest time to achieve 6 #1 UK singles, taking 1 year 5 months from Wannabe's first week at #1 to the ascent of Too Much. This outpaced Lennon/McCartney, who took 1 year 6 months (From Me to You through I Feel Fine). In 1999 (20 years ago) she presented her own music show Emma on VH1. She had also recorded the song "(Hey You) Free Up Your Mind" for the anime movie Pokemon: The First Movie. The Spice Girls stopped recording in 2000; many rumours circulated about a reunion for the group's tenth anniversary but nothing materialised until Jun. 2007 (12 years ago) when they reformed for The Return of the Spice Girls tour and Greatest Hits CD.

Solo career (2001-2007)

Her debut solo album entitled A Girl Like Me spawned the UK number-one hit "What Took You So Long?" as well as the top five hits "What I Am" (a cover of a 1988 (31 years ago) song earlier recorded by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians) and "Take My Breath Away" (which has nothing to do with Berlin's 1986 (33 years ago) hit), and the top twenty hit "We're Not Gonna Sleep Tonight". The album sold approximately 125,000 copies in the UK. Due to the disappointing sales of the project, Bunton parted with Virgin in 2002 (17 years ago).

Bunton's second album Free Me was released in 2003 (16 years ago) by 19 Entertainment through Universal Music. It was commercially successful and had four singles, "Free Me", "Maybe", "I'll Be There" and "Crickets Sing For Anamaria". After success in the American dance charts the album was also released in North America. The American edition included bonus remixes and a different cover to the UK edition.

In Nov. 2006 (13 years ago), Bunton released the official charity single for the BBC Children in Need appeal, recording a cover of Petula Clark's '60s classic "Downtown". It peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart and was followed by her third studio album, Life in Mono, released on 4 December. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at number sixty-five, selling approximately 13,000 copies in its first week. To date, it has sold around 48.000 copies in the UK. The second single from it was "All I Need to Know", released on 12 Feb. 2007 (12 years ago), intended for the Valentine's Day market. Bunton shot the video around Old Street in East London, in the week before Christmas 2006 (13 years ago). Entering the UK Singles Chart at number sixty, "All I Need to Know" became Bunton's lowest-charting single of her solo career.

Spice Girls reunion (2007-2009)

On 28 Jun. 2007 (12 years ago), it was announced that Bunton would be reuniting with the Spice Girls for a world tour and Greatest Hits collection release. It's been confirmed Bunton will be working with Timbaland on his new album.
