Star Ambassador Hayley Orrantia
Hayley is mostly recognized as “Erica Goldberg” on ABC’s hit comedy Meet the Goldbergs, but despite her natural acting chops, her first love is Music. Her songs have been featured on many music platforms including Spotify and iTunes playlists, and on Radio Disney Country. In 2018, she kicked off the Strong, Sweet and Southern tour, her first headlining tour including 22 cities across the US. By the spring of 2019 she released her first EP “The Way Out” chronicling her grief over a traumatic breakup which reached #20 on the US iTunes Country Chart and #3 on the UK iTunes Country Chart the very day it was released.
We met Hayley early on in her music journey, while she was still in high school. TMP donated $1000 to her school to purchase instruments and other music materials for their music education program. Hayley’s natural talent and love for music made her a perfect candidate to become a part of TMP’s classrooms to stage program where she got to develop her live performance skills. In 2008 this Texas Star showed everyone what she was made of when she won the TMP Lone Stars Rising Competition at the State Fair of Texas. From then on Haley performed at several local stages and world class venues including opening for the Dallas Cup’s 30 Year Anniversary where she performed in front of a crowd of thousands of people.
Hayley has served as an Ambassador for TMP since 2009. Of course she’s made quite a name for herself since then, but in true Hayley fashion, she never lost sight of where she came from and her heart for what truly matters. Thank you Hayley for using your platform to make sure other young aspiring artists like yourself have a chance to learn and develop their love for music through Texas Music Project.
Hayley has been TMP’s Ambassador for many years and we’re proud of her accomplishments. Her school music department was given $1,000 by TMP to support their programs and TMP was able to find several world-class venues for Hayley to perform, including the Dallas Cup for 15,000 international student soccer players.
