About Linda Ronstadt

Linda Maria Ronstadt (born July 15, 1946) is an American popular music recording artist. She has earned eleven Grammy Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award, numerous United States and internationally certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums, in addition to Tony Award and Golden Globe nominations. A singer, songwriter, and record producer, she is recognized as a definitive interpreter of songs. Being one of music's most versatile and commercially successful female singers in U.S. history, she is recognized for her many public stages of self-reinvention and incarnations. With a one-time standing as the Queen of Rock, where she was bestowed the title of 'highest paid woman in rock', and known as the First Lady of Rock, she has more recently emerged as music matriarch, international arts advocate and human rights advocate.
