Geri Halliwell London, May 1 (IANS) Former Spice Girls singer Geri Halliwell is to give a speech in the House of Commons in Britain.
The diva, who has been an ambassador for the United Nations for more than a decade has just returned from a fact-finding trip to Zambia and Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah Brown has invited her to talk about her experiences there next week to an audience of 200 people, reports the Mirror online.

“It’s a little bit nerve-wracking! I mean, I’m just a girl from Watford from quite humble beginnings! But I have to remind myself it’s not about me, it’s about everything I saw and heard in Zambia, it’s for those women,” she said.

Halliwell was in Zambia in her capacity as a UN goodwill ambassador and maternal health care campaigner.
