Los Angeles – The song is available for download here. Mayte, who was married to Prince and worked with him throughout the ’90s, will share anecdotes about what turned Prince on to vegan eating and why he donated “Animal Kingdom” to PETA. The song’s chorus reveals the depth of Prince’s commitment to animals:

No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity
No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing 2 me
It’s why I don’t eat red meat or white fish
Don’t give me no blue cheese
We’re all members of the animal kingdom
Leave your brothers and sisters in the sea

Where:           PETA’s Bob Barker Building, 2154 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles

When:             Tuesday, June 7, 12 noon (Celebrity arrival at 12:30 p.m.)

Prince also used PETA as a resource for information and included in album artwork that he shunned wool because of the cruelty to sheep. More information about his passion for animals can be read in this blog post.
