My Conversation With Linda Ronstadt

Tonight on PBS, the first of my two part insightful conversation with legendary singer Linda Ronstadt. We talk about her career and her new memoir, Simple Dreams.

In the clip below, Linda talks about her brave battle with Parkinson's disease, losing her singing voice to the condition, and the group of children that give her another reason to keep going!

For more of our conversation, be sure to tune in to "Tavis Smiley" Wednesday, September 25 and Thursday, September 26 on PBS. Check out our website for your local TV listings:
