Vanessa is the daughter of Spanish Flamenco guitarist Caesar Gomez and the Italian Opera singer Francesca Ricci. Vanessa began singing at the age of 6 in Madrid, Spain. She routinely joined her father on stage where she became the darling of every show. The family moved to Emerald City after her fathers death in a car crash when she was 12.

Vanessa caught her first break at the age of 15 when she won a singing competition sponsored by Walt Disney and became regular on the New Mickey Mouse Club. In 1997 she won the Teen Choice Awards for Best Teen Talent, earning a recording contract and a part in the much maligned movie “Bar-Bee Dahl!!” In 1999 she released her first album “V” and has never looked back.
