Linda Ronstadt, whose incomparable singing voice has been silenced by Parkinson's disease, makes a rare public appearance at San Jose's California Theatre. Part of the acclaimed Unique Lives series, she'll speak out about her illness and participate in a Q&A. One of the best-selling and most honored artists in music history, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, National Medal of the Arts recipient and 11-time Grammy winner's impressive musical output ranges from pop, rock, country, bluegrass and Americana to opera, jazz, tropical Latin, Cajun and even the double-platinum Mexican folk album Canciones de Mi Padre. That Grammy-winning disc just happens to be the biggest-selling non-English-language album in U.S. music history. Ronstadt, a dedicated political activist and national arts advocate, also recently penned a memoir, entitled Simple Dreams.
