LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE

Year 2019
Runtime 93 mins
Alberta Premiere

Celebrate the artist whose voice defined a generation, breaking the rules and opening doors for women in the music industry along the way.

Since bursting onto the music scene in 1967, Linda Ronstadt’s extraordinary vocal range and ambition created unforgettable songs across rock, pop, country, folk, standards, Mexican, and soul. As the most popular female recording artist of the 1970s, she filled arenas and produced an astounding eleven Platinum albums. She was the first artist to top the Pop, Country, and R&B charts simultaneously, winning 10 Grammy Awards®, and attaining a level of stardom the Tucson native never could have imagined.

In LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE, Ronstadt is our guide through a childhood, singing Mexican canciones with her family; her folk days with the Stone Poneys; and on to her reign as the undisputed “queen of country rock” in the ‘70s and early ’80s until her singing voice was stilled by illness, forcing her into early retirement. But her music - and influence - remain timeless.

With moving performance footage and appearances by friends and 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.
