The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The whistling sounds and applause of thousands of excited audience members echo in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, while waiting for the performers. Silence follows as the singer slowly walks onto the center stage.

As she looks at her audience the memory of her childhood starts flashing back. Her mathematician mother falls in love with her musician father. She is born in Tucson, Arizona. Growing up after the war with a simple dream.

"I love you, Linda!" A shout awakens her...

"Hi," she says, "I'm Linda Ronstadt."
