With one of the most stunning voices to ever hit the airwaves, Linda Ronstadt emerged in the folk rock scene of the 1960s and went on to create unforgettable music across rock, pop, country, folk, American standards, classic Mexican music, and soul. She was the first artist to top the Pop, Country, and R&B charts simultaneously; she won ten Grammy Awards and had eleven platinum albums to her name. Narrated by Linda Ronstadt, with Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Don Henley, and Aaron Neville; with an abundance of excellent music clips. USA, 2019, 95 minutes, documentary, rated PG-13

Discussion after the film with Rita Harvey, Broadway star of Phantom of the Opera and Fiddler on the Roof, touring now with her solo show A Heart Like a Wheel, a tribute to the music of Linda Ronstadt.

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

“A beautiful, deeply moving and well-deserved tribute to this utterly singular woman and her talent.” – Katie Walsh, Chicago Tribune

“A staggering onslaught of breathtaking vocal performances tumble through this film—Ronstadt singing the aching Long, Long Time, the ebullient When Will I Be Loved, the soulful Blue Bayou. She nails the soprano part in Pirates of Penzance, takes ownership of the Sinatra standard What’s New, practically makes love to New Orleans R&B crooner Aaron Neville on Don’t Know Much.” – Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle

“If you’ve forgotten how extraordinary a singer Linda Ronstadt is, how wide a range of material she’s explored and how deep her commitment to the art and craft of music is, Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice is a potent, mind-expanding reminder.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Ronstadt’s work, and her words in this film, testify to the multicultural, cross-pollinating vitality of American vernacular music. She shows herself to be one of its indispensable interpreters, as a vocalist and also as a thinker—covering a sprawling landscape with elegance, passion and insight.” (A NYT Critic’s Pick) – A. O. Scott, The New York Times
