Captures the life and career of a rock ’n’ roll star who never compromised.
In a one-night-only event, Peter Asher, Linda Ronstadt’s longtime manager and producer, hosts a special screening of the acclaimed documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice at the MIM Music Theater. Asher, who produced all of Ronstadt’s solo albums between 1974 and 1989, will introduce the film and answer questions following the screening.
Ronstadt, who burst onto the music scene in 1967, has been an icon for more than 50 years. Her extraordinary vocal range and ambition created unforgettable songs across rock, pop, country, folk, American standards, classic Mexican music, and soul. As the most popular female recording artist of the 1970s—with hit songs such as “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved,” and “Blue Bayou”—Ronstadt filled huge arenas and produced an astounding 11 platinum albums. Ronstadt was the first artist to top the pop, country, and R&B charts simultaneously. She also won 10 Grammy Awards on 26 nominations and attained a level of stardom the Tucson native never could have imagined.
In the documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, Ronstadt guides us through her early years singing Mexican canciones with her family, her folk days with the Stone Poneys, and her reign as the rock queen of the 1970s and early ’80s. She was a pioneer for women in the male-dominated music industry and a passionate advocate for human rights. Ultimately, her singing voice was stilled by illness, which forced her into retirement, but her music and influence remain as timeless as ever. 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.
