    Spice would love to perform on Mandela's b'day

    Washington (ANI): The Spice Girls have revealed that they would be delighted to perform at the celebrations for Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, to be held in London's Hyde Park on June 27. Geri Halliwell had last week announced that the final concert of the group's world tour, ending in Toronto on Feb 26, will probably be the last time they would take the stage together.

    However, Sporty Spice - aka Melanie Chisholm, revealed during the group's show at New York City's Madison Square Garden, that the band would be thrilled to sing for Mandela if they were asked. "We're great friends of Mr Mandela and we would love to perform for him again," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

    "We were privileged enough to meet the man and he is just amazing. He's just an example of strength and humility and if we could be part of that, celebrating his life - wow," Halliwell added. The former South African president is looking forward to the reformed girl group performing at the all-star concert to be held in his honour, reported the Daily Mirror last week.

    The Wannabe stars had first met Mandela in 1997 after they were invited to his Pretoria presidential residence while in Johannesburg for a concert. Rumours are that the group had been asked to sing at Mandela's 89th birthday celebrations last year, but were unable to do so as Baby Spice Emma Bunton was heavily pregnant with her son Beau.
