If you love documentary film, music, beautiful stories, and, as I do, just plain love Linda Ronstadt, you won’t want to miss this beautifully told story of the woman with the greatest voice of my generation. She sang every kind of music as though she invented each one. It’s touching, accurate and filled with thrilling performances. It also has some delightful surprises and insights into a truly well lived life. Besides her beauty, her wit, and the hypnotic miracle of her singing, the real reveal here is that her thinking and her core beliefs are as original and well thought out as any you’ll hear. Lovingly shot, collected, and edited, it will probably make you leave the theatre with even more gratitude for her immense musical contribution and the bittersweet realization that she was and still is the only one of her. No one else comes close.

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.
