The former SPICE GIRL, 32, has suffered a slump in chart glory since scoring success with her early solo tunes, but she hopes winning a BBC contract to provide the theme for this November's (04) Children In Need TV event - an entertainment-based fundraising special - will propel her back into the pop limelight.
Halliwell has two songs in contention for the charity - her new single RIDE IT and another track, FEEL THE FEAR. Meanwhile, Girls Aloud have recorded a cover of THE Pretenders' 1994 hit I'LL STAND BY YOU.
A record industry insider says, "The Children In Need single is really high profile and is such a good cause that the artist usually ends up at number one in the chart.
"It would be a fantastic start for Geri to make her comeback but she will have to use all her girl power to battle Girls Aloud."23/09/2004 09:22
