Happy Tears was an unreleased album of children's music by Prince that was inspired by his then-wife, Mayte Garcia's pregnancy. The album was supposed to be released in November of 1996 and also include a book of children's stories with it.
To help promote the album, Prince guest-starred on "Muppets Tonight" where he performed the song "She Gave Her Angels" (which was the only confirmed song to be on the album). The song remained unreleased until it was featured on Prince's "Crystal Ball" set.
The "Happy Tears" project was cancelled after Prince & Mayte's son died on October 16, 1996 from complications of Pfeiffer Syndrome.
