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. 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. 

Since bursting onto the music scene in 1967, 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 ’70s, Ronstadt filled huge arenas like no one had ever done and produced an astounding eleven platinum albums. She won 10 Grammy® Awards on 26 nominations and attained a level of stardom the Tucson, Arizona native never could have fathomed.

“It captures the life and career of a rock ‘n’ roll star who never looked back, never apologized, never compromised.”
