Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice

Follows through the 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 and an early advocate for human rights. Ultimately, her incredible voice was lost to Parkinson’s disease, but her music and influence remain as timeless as ever. Linda narrates the film with help from Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, and Don Henley (PG-13, 95 mins)

“The film has Ronstadt’s full cooperation, including her funny, charming narration throughout.” – Ren Jender, NPR

“A beautiful, deeply moving and well-deserved tribute to this utterly singular woman and her talent.” – Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
