SUN 8 NOV 2020: Geri Horner (née Halliwell) has launched her YouTube series Rainbow Woman with a grand tribute to one of Britain’s most iconic Girl Power figures, Queen Elizabeth I. Premiering today at 12PM GMT – watch below.
In a personal message to her fans, Geri pens:
For the last twenty-five years, we've been on an amazing journey together.
I’m taking you on a girl power adventure of discovery. Together, we go up a mountain,
With love, Geri."
Written, directed and executive produced by Geri, Rainbow Woman is a collection of vibrant vignettes following her on big and little adventures, each hued with humour and their own message of hope and positivity. A new episode will be unveiled every Sunday on Geri’s YouTube channel with bonus content for fans to follow. Subscribe to Geri’s channel here.
Ben McOwen Wilson, Managing Director, YouTube UK said: “Geri is an icon of British female creative achievement and we are so proud that Rainbow Woman is launching on YouTube. Suitably, the series launch is a grand tribute to one of Britain’s most iconic Girl Power figures, Queen Elizabeth I. Rainbow Woman is a great example of diverse Britain and the incredible creative content that we love.”
Before we go forward, Geri takes us back in time. On its debut episode, ‘Queen Speaks’, she undergoes a regal transformation to pay homage to Queen Elizabeth I – the Queen of Girl Power and a ‘Rainbow Woman’, who ruled England for 45 years. The Queen was a lyricist, she enjoyed Shakespeare, and writing poetry. Her most symbolic portrait was of course titled, The Rainbow Portrait. Ever an avid storyteller and lover of English history, Geri shot the episode in Ashridge House, where Princess Elizabeth – the future Queen Elizabeth I – lived until she was arrested by her sister Queen Mary in 1554. This picturesque episode was shot in collaboration with BAFTA-winning cinematographer Laurie Rose, who has worked on Peaky Blinders and Riviera.
Rainbow Woman will also feature some new, original music by Geri, who has written several unforgettable hits that have soundtracked our lives with the Spice Girls and as a solo artist.
