Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice
CAST: Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton DIRECTOR: Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman
A musical biography of one of the most successful and versatile female singers of the 20th century—and one of the most successful recording artists of all time. At the height of unprecedented success, Ronstadt, a restless and adventurous artist, turned away from pop music to explore an astonishing variety of musical styles, from American standards to country to classical operetta before circling back to her family roots with traditional Mexican canciones. Withstanding constant pressure from a risk-averse industry, Linda insisted on following her musical instincts. Today Ronstadt has Parkinson's disease and her magnificent singing voice has been silenced. But rather than letting that voice be lost to history, Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice tells Linda's story through her own words and music, and by such professional colleagues as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Aaron Neville among many others... The Sound of My Voice is a welcome reminder of Ronstadt's can-do-anything spirit.

It captures the life and career of a rock 'n' roll star who never looked back, never apologized, never compromised, virtually never made a wrong move, and made it all seem effortless.Owen Gleiberman, Variety
The Sound of My Voice is the perfect title for a film that expertly captures why Ronstadt was such a unique performer - a voice that could lend itself to any form of music she tried...Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood Daily
