  • Shawn from Green Bay, WiGood video and another great song by Melanie C. What an amazing story for the woman who used to be Sporty Spice, kind of lost her way for a while, and now has seemingly found herself. I hope she keeps making records and singing. She is and always has been a rare under appreciated talent.
