PETA Plans to Honor Prince on His Birthday with a Pro-Vegan Song


BERTRAND GUAY/AFP/Getty ImagesJune 7 would have marked Prince‘s 58th birthday and in honor of the music legend, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering a free download of “Animal Kingdom,” a song the icon donated to the organization.

The pro-vegan song was donated by the late singer for PETA’s 20th anniversary in 1999. Now supporters can download the track on Tuesday on PETA’s website. Prince’s ex-wife, Mayte Garcia, explained in a statement released by PETA that June 7 isn’t just about celebrating the influential artist, but also about celebrating his legacy.

“Prince didn’t want to celebrate birthdays but [rather] live life to elevate and educate to the next level of enlightenment,” Garcia says. “My mission every June 7 is not only to celebrate his birth but also, with PETA, to remember this man by making June 7 a day where Prince fans go vegan to see how much better they feel and to honor his kind legacy.”

Garcia is scheduled to co-host a party at PETA’s Los Angeles office, the Bob Barker Building, on Tuesday to honor her late husband and celebrate the launch with Russell SimmonsPamela AndersonMobyNo Doubt‘s Tony Kanal and Go-Go’s singer Belinda Carlisle, among others.
