A celebrated female singer; a woman of outstanding talent in the world of opera, and by extension in theatre, cinema, and popular music. In Philadelphia, a city known for providing the world of music with knockout talent, another yet unforgettable legendary diva in the making is unquietly emerging. Tanqueray Hayward is exploding on the Philadelphia music scene and is claiming her seat at the highly coveted table.
Born in Philadelphia, music was calling Hayward’s name from a very early age. Getting her first taste for the musical spotlight, Hayward started singing in church. Like many legendary singers before her, most notably: Whitney Houston, Patti LaBelle, and Aretha Franklin, the church provides the basics for soul singers when learning breath control, tone and confidence.
After taking a leap of faith and resigning from a medical career, Hayward’s vocal potency landed the opportunity to record background vocals for pop star Pink and open for internationally-acclaimed gospel artist Marvin Sapp in Philadelphia.
Hayward has enjoyed the experience of performing to sold-out crowds at renowned music venues throughout Philadelphia. Hayward’s vocal ability and stage presence are potent for all who dare to experience it without a filter.
Winner of the President’s Choice Award for Indie Soul Café Radio in New York in November 2020, Winner of Soul Tracks “New Artist of the Year” in December 2020, and nominated for “Best International Artist” for UK’s Bright Star Awards in December 2020. Tanqueray’s debut album “Definition of the Woman” was released in March 2021.
With Hayward serving in the United States Navy, she learned valuable life lessons of self-discipline and an incredible work ethic which has naturally flowed over to her rising music career
