Melanie C sings at the German Sustainability Award – On 22.11.19 Melanie C will perform at the German Sustainability Award in Düsseldorf. The singer of the Spice Girls who became famous as Sporty Spice has promised her support for the German Sustainability Award after having stood up for the rights of the LGBT scene at the worldwide Pride Events.
One week after her sold out Reunion Stadium Tour of the Spice Girls in the UK and Ireland (around 700,000 tickets sold) Melanie C fought for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual people at Pride events around the world.
Strong performance at the Pride Event Sao Paulo
In Sao Paulo alone, hundreds of thousands of people marched through the Brazilian metropolis of Sao Paulo during the Gay Pride Parade, protesting against right-wing populist President Jair Bolonaro. Brazil’s extreme right-wing President Bolsonaro has repeatedly made derogatory remarks about homosexuals. He once said that he prefers to lose his son in a traffic accident than to have a gay son.”

“I am personally very happy about the commitment and support of Melanie C. Look at her (picture above Sao Paulo ) – for me she is a courageous fighter for sustainability who uses her voice and worldwide fame to stand up for the rights of minorities. With her courage and fighting spirit and her clear statements, Melanie C is an icon and symbolic figure for millions of people. As a member of the Spice Girls – the world’s most famous girl group – she has had a huge impact on millions of fans around the world for decades. To this day – as you can see from the Instagram reaction of Billie Eilish,” says Stefan Lohmann, Artist Relations Manager responsible for the international stars and the live entertainment concept at the German Sustainability Award.
Melanie Chisholm on her participation in the German Sustainability Award
“We only have one planet and we need to start looking after it! Everyone has an obligation to make more effort to help, but big businesses and governments can make a huge difference with the laws they make and the products they produce. They, along with all of us, must take responsibility for the future of our planet.” – Melanie C
“Mel C is an activist for LGBT,” says Schulze-Hausmann – initiator of the German Sustainability Award. LGBT stands for “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender”. “She has been pursuing this sustainability issue for a long time.

“There is no agent in Germany who has understood our subject so well,” says initiator Stefan Schulze-Hausmann. “It’s all about getting artists who are really interested in sustainability to perform with us. But the artists’ interest is not enough. It takes a lot of skill and professionalism to put together the whole package behind the visit of a national and international star”.

Melanie C’s show with Sink The Pink, known for their outrageous outfits, drag shows, and dedication to pop smashes, took in places like Sao Paolo, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Dublin, and cities in the UK including Bristol, Belfast and Brighton. The Spice Girl has long been an LGBTQ icon, and she says she was inspired by Sink The Pink’s warmth and inclusivity. “It was a place where anyone could be themselves, whomever they were, while feeling completely relaxed about being so,” says Mel.
