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 on his Diamonds and Pearls tour. Her role was soon elevated as she became the focus of his next album, Love Symbol, and assumed the guise of an Egyptian princess for the concept album and the 3 Chains of Gold video compilation.
When Prince slimmed down The New Power Generation and changed his stage name to an unpronounceable symbol, 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. Mayte was in The New Power Generation from late 1991 to 1996. When she left for maternity leave, she was still an associate of the NPG.
In 1995, Prince produced an album for Mayte entitled Child of the Sun for a European release on his NPG Records label.
In 1996, 22-year-old Garcia married her 37-year-old fiancee Prince on Valentine`s Day, in Minneapolis. White doves were released after the ceremony. The two went honeymooning in Hawaii.
Two months later, Mayte discovered she was pregnant with the couple`s first child. Sadly, the child (rumored to be named Gregory) died a week after he was born due to a rare skull defect.
In 1997 she was the artistic director of the New Power Generation Dance Company on their Around the World in a Day tour.But, due to lack of funds, the initiative didn`t succeed.
She also directed the music videos for "The One" for Prince and for other artists like Chaka Khan and Graham Central Station. All three were collaborating in 1997-1998.
In 1998, Prince announced the couple`s divorce. On their third wedding anniversary, the marriage was annulled, due to Mayte`s Catholic religion. They formally divorced in June 2000.
Mayte on His Death April 22, 2016
Prince's first wife who married the superstar in 1996, wrote on Instagram: "This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated ... I loved him then, I love him now, and will love him eternally ... He's with our son now.
Prince and Garcia had a son who died a week after birth in 1996 of a rare genetic disorder. The couple divorced in 2000.
