     ‘Now I’m gonna try one experiment, I know you’re quite tired, I know some of you are tipsy, I know some of you are asleep but we were thinking about what we could do to make this show extra special in 40 minutes,’ Martin said.

    ‘One of our dreams is to play a song with a Spice Girl and we’ve been waiting for this for 24 years. I don’t know if its possible but if everyone is super quiet and just sends that wish out…wouldn’t it be amazing if a Spice Girl just appeared out of nowhere?’

    To that Mel C walked out in a tracksuit drawing cheers, and the two began to perform the heartfelt 1996 ballad. 

    Following the show, Mel shared footage of them rehearsing backstage where Martin strummed on the guitar while she showcased her famed pipes.

    ‘What a fantastic, unexpected night! I gave Chris a text to tell him we would be coming to his @imlistening @audacy #wecansurvive gig at the Hollywood Bowl and the next thing I know, he’s on FaceTime while I’m in the nail salon, asking me to come up on stage with him!

    Well, what could I say to an offer like that! Thank you @coldplay for such an amazing night and experience. Hopefully I can get back to @hollywoodbowl soon with three certain ladies for company!,’ she teased. 

    A portion of the proceeds from the epic concert benefitted the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
