Biography

Mayte Jannell Garcia (b. 12 November 1973), better known as simply Mayte is a dancer and singer, best known as the former wife of pop-star, Prince.

Mayte first came to the attention of Prince in 1990 when her mother, Nell submitted a video cassette of Mayte’s performance. Prince met the young dancer during the same year while on tour in Germany and eventually she was hired to dance in his Diamonds and Pearls tour. Her role was soon elevated as she became the focus of his next album — The Love Symbol and assumed the guise of an Egyptian princess for the concept album.

When Prince slimmed down the New Power Generation and changed his stage name to o(+>, Mayte revealed to fans her Puerto Rican heritage, remained in the NPG as a dancer, and often provided English and Spanish vocals on his albums. In 1995, Prince produced an album for Mayte entitled Child of the Sun for a European release on his NPG Records label. Singles for the album included “If I Love U 2 Night”.
