Linda Ronstadt: Sound of My Voice Special Screening and Panel Presentation
There is a free special screening and panel presentation on
January 18, from 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., at C.K. McClatchy High
School. Linda Ronstadt is a Mexican-American singer who,
throughout her career, holds six platinum-selling albums in a row
and has scored significant hits from the late 1960s until the
1980s. She was known to sing a wide variety of genres; however,
despite her diverse musical talent and platinum-records, she
remains critically underrated. Ronstadt is unable to sing due to
illness, but in the absence of her voice, the documentary aims to
reclaim Ronstadt’s rightful position as one of the most gifted
vocalists of our time. The documentary is a time-lapse of
collective memories of her career from individuals like Dolly
Parton, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Star and much more.
The film will be followed by a panel presentation of local female leaders, who will speak on women’s empowerment, a central theme of the film. This is an excellent opportunity to prepare our youth to be able to step into their own power when faced with adversity. Linda Ronstadt was often met with hostility in the music industry when making course altering music decisions, and through it all, she managed to keep her authenticity and excel in everything she did. Linda Ronstadt has great role model attributes for young and old folks alike. Immediately following the film, we’ll share information on a $100 cash prize reflective piece competition for students to participate in in the following weeks. The entire event is free, and lunch is included. We look forward to seeing you there. Please register to the link below by January 16.
