Hello family, friends, and fans! I’m Angie Gomez, your “Midday Diva”, weekdays from 10:00AM to 2:00PM on MEGA 104.3 Arizona’s Old School! Raised in the lovely town of Superior, Arizona, and 1996 graduate of Ray High School, go “Bearcats”! I have been part of the Mega family for the past four years and let me tell you it has been such an honor. Growing up I listened to the sounds of Earth, Wind and Fire, Carlos Santana, George Clinton, Michael Jackson, and Prince, all of the old school artists that we play here at MEGA 104.3.
Of course at that time it was not old school, it was new school. So getting familiar with the music was not a challenge for me. One thing I knew for a fact as a young girl, was that I wanted to entertain.
Let me tell you a little bit about my personal life. I am the oldest of four children, I have two brothers, one sister, three nephews, and one niece. My parents and both sets of grandparents live in Superior. Most of my free time, when I have it, is spending quality time with them. We love to cook-out, watch sports and listen to those good ole’ oldies!
Working at the radio station is not my only line of work. I am the lead female vocalist for the group, Powerdrive, a very well known band through out the Phoenix area. Powerdrive consists of eleven members, we have everything from horns to percussion to vocals. I have been a member for the past 5 years and we perform at various restaurants, clubs, and casinos. The one question that I get asked when performing with the band is if I am the same Angie Gomez from MEGA 104.3, and the answer to that is yes!
Songstress Mariah Carey requires that her dressing room for performances be decked out with two dozen white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles, with no harsh lighting, no busy patterns on the furniture, and a temperature of 75 degrees. So it's no surprise that following the birth of twins Moroccan and Monroe on April 30, she had a few ideas about how she wanted their new nurseries -- yes, that's more than one -- to look. She even worked with Gail Sedigh of AFK Furniture and Mario Buatta to ensure the babies' rooms in both her mansion in Bel Air, California, and her penthouse in NYC's Tribecca neighborhood shared with hubby Nick Cannon were all that she hoped they would be.
Take a peek!
"I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment," the "Shake It Off" singer tells Life & Style about the rooms. She adds that working with others was "so challenging because I had such specific ideas I wanted implemented. I feel like I'm bringing two individuals into the world, so I wanted to do more than cookie-cutter styles in blue and pink."
The finished product certainly isn't what you'd find in just any home. It includes the traditional plush stuffed animals, then the not-so traditional cribs worth $3,594 each, and -- get this -- matching outfits from designer Roberto Cavalli. I can only imagine what their first cars will be like!
Extravagant as it may seem, the 41-year-old first-time mom to cuties she calls Roc and Roe confesses that the expense is worth it to her. To say she loooves being a momma would be an understatement.
"I feel so doubly blessed to have such a perfect start to our family," she gushed. "It's perfect -- it couldn't be better."
