Child Of The Sun
When aged 19 Mayte Jannell Garcia was a dancer whom was first introduced to Prince in 1990 by her mother, sending an audition tape, she joined the Diamonds And Pearls Tour the following year and was her first job as a professional dancer. Her relationship with Prince inspired the entire backstory to the Love Symbol album and the home video 3 Chains O’ Gold – the couple married on Valentine’s Day in 1996. For Child Of The Sun, her solo album, Prince wrote and performed the instruments for every song (excepting the House Of Brick (Brick House) his cover of the Commodores track). The single, The Most Beautiful Boy In The World preceded the release of the album by over a year, a re-working of Prince’s first UK chart-topping single The Most Beautiful Girl In The World that was released on 9 February 1994. Prince is credited for his involvement, under the name Prince love symbol.
Prince and Mayte divorced, amicably, in 2000 – she afterwards married Tommy Lee, the drummer of Mötley Crüe. In 2017 she published an autobiography about her time with Prince.
