The 2019 film is about 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.

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 95-minute movie is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and drug material. It is presented with captions for the hearing impaired.

The movie, which is shown for free, will be shown in the Community Room and also is currently on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service.
