Linda Ronstadt has been an icon for more than 50 years. Her extraordinary vocal range and ambition created unforgettable
songs across rock, pop, country, folk ballads, American standards, classic Mexican music and soul. As the most popular
female recording artist of the 1970s, Ronstadt filled huge arenas like no one had ever done and produced an astounding
eleven platinum albums. Ronstadt was the first artist to top the Pop, Country, and R&B charts simultaneously, she won 10
Grammy® Awards on 26 nominations and attained a level of stardom the Tucson native never could have fathomed.
In Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, Ronstadt is our guide through her early years of singing Mexican
canciones with her family; her folk days with the Stone Poneys; and her reign as the “rock queen” of the ‘70s and
early ’80s. She was a pioneer for women in the male-dominated music industry; an early advocate for human rights,
and had a high-profile romance with California governor Jerry Brown. Ultimately, her incredible voice was lost to
Parkinson’s disease, but her music and influence remain as timeless as ever. With moving performance footage
and appearances by collaborators including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne, Linda
Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice celebrates an artist whose desire to share the music she loved made generations
of fans fall in love with her — and the sound of her voice.
