In August 2013 Ronstadt revealed that she has Parkinson's disease, leaving her unable to sing due to loss of muscle control, which is common to Parkinson's patients. She was diagnosed eight months prior to the announcement and had initially attributed the symptoms she had been experiencing to the aftereffects of shoulder surgery and a tick bite.

Linda Marie Ronstadt (born July 15, 1946) is an American popular music singer. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award and numerous United States and internationally certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums. She has also earned nominations for a Tony Award and a Golden Globe award.

Linda's family all still live

Linda's family all still live here in Tucson and are still huge in the cultural scene and history of this town... they are all wonderful people and love to share their family's gift of musical talent. No matter what happens to her, the Ronstadts will be around making great music for many generations to come. Good luck Linda and God bless!
