The song which was donated to the organisation in the 90s is available now via the PETA Website through to June 7 – his birthday.
“Prince didn’t want to celebrate birthdays but [rather] live life to elevate and educate to the next level of enlightenment. 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.
PETA has a veg pledge on their site to make it really easy. It all begins this June 7, when we get together to share our love for Prince and to release the incredible song he donated to PETA—’Animal Kingdom’—as a free download at PETA.org.au. Prince said, ‘Compassion is an action word with no boundaries,’ and that’s our message with this campaign, which everyone can participate in.” – Mayte Garcia
Featuring lyrics like “No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity/ No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing to me,” and “We’re all members of the animal kingdom/ Leave your brothers and sisters in the seam,” the track depicts the artist’s passion for vegan living and commitment to animal rights.
Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton, recently declared June 7 as ‘Prince Day’ to mark what would have been his 58th birthday.
