This new documentary profiles the 10-time Grammy winning singer and proves aptly titled. Not only does it provide many examples of the glorious vocals that made its subject a pop music superstar, it also allows us to once again hear her voice as she narrates her story. Astutely chronicling an amazing musical career that ended prematurely due to Parkinson's disease, the doc will delight the singer's old fans and likely make her many new ones as well.

It chronicles Ronstadt's myriad stylistic shifts including folk, pop, rock, country, operetta, the Great American Songbook and traditional Mexican music. It's hard to imagine any other singer who could pull that off both creatively and commercially. The film includes reminiscences by such friends and colleagues as Don Henley, Ry Cooder, David Geffen, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Cameron Crowe and Peter Asher, among many others.

Ronstadt amassed a string of pop hits including "You're No Good," "Blue Bayou," "It's So Easy," "When Will I Be Loved," "Desperado," "Just One Look" and "Hurt So Bad." Ironically, Ronstadt was always insecure about her singing despite having total confidence in her creative choices.

--The Hollywood Reporter

“Salutes one of the most enthralling pop stars of the 1970s, whose voice soared above the hurly-burly around her.” --Variety
