The Most Beautiful

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mayte Garcia

Narrated By: Mayte Garcia

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Duration: 9 hours 8 minutes

Summary:

At the one-year anniversary of his death, legendary musician Prince's first wife shares a uniquely intimate, candid, and revelatory look inside the personal and professional life of one of the world's most beloved icons.

In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply personal story of their relationship and offers a singular perspective on the music icon and their world together: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating losses that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good. Throughout it all, they shared a bond more intimate than any other in Prince's life. No one else can tell this story or can provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince--both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist--than Mayte, his partner during some of the most pivotal personal and professional years of his career. The Most Beautiful is a book that will be returned to for decades, as Prince's music lives on with generations to come.

    I LOVED this audio book! I didn't want it to end. Open, honest, detailed and such a loving account of her life with Prince. She solved a mystery and debunked so many rumors. I hate rumors. I hate the way people really believe they know these celebrities, their stories, their love lives. We don't. So all we can do is hope for a work of art like this. Thank you Mayte! Your kind spirit shined through and I felt it all. Thank you for sharing your story of Amir and Gia. I dang near cried in the car! God bless you mama! ~ Brooke, Atlanta Real Estate Agent

    It's not just about her life with Prince. She worked hard and had her own when she met him. Some things I think should have been left out of the book. And the really hard parts...when you have to hit PAUSE because you're crying so hard you can't hear... narrative was very impressive. I don't think I could have done it.
