LINDA RONSTADT - THE MUSIC ICON
Linda Ronstadt has been a music icon for more than 50 years. As such, she is a woman, artist, advocate, and icon who has Socially Sparked our lives. She first burst onto the music scene in 1967 and quickly showed her extraordinary vocal range and ambition to the world. She created unforgettable songs across rock, pop, country, folk ballads, American standards, classic Mexican music and soul. As the most popular female recording artist of the 1970s — with songs like “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved,” and “Blue Bayou” — Ronstadt filled huge arenas and produced an astounding eleven Platinum albums.
Her accolades and credits include: she was the first artist to top the Pop, Country, and R&B charts simultaneously; she won 10 Grammy ® Awards on 26 nominations and attained a level of stardom the Tucson native never could have imagined.
Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice wonderfully celebrates the artist — whose desire to share the music she loved made generations of fans fall in love with her — and the sound of her voice. While Ronstadt may have lost her singing voice to Parkinson’s disease, her music and influence remain as timeless as ever.
