Linda Ronstadt Discusses Parkinson's Battle with Diane Sawyer

(NEW YORK) -- An interview with Linda Ronstadt will air on ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer Friday night. The 67-year-old singing legend sits down with anchor Diane Sawyer and discusses her battle with Parkinson's disease, which she revealed last month to AARP magazine.

In a preview clip aired by ABC News on Thursday night, Ronstadt says her dreams "are kind of crowded now."

She continues, "I'm just real glad I have them and when I wake up in the morning I think, I can walk and I can talk, so it's a good day. Because there will probably come a day when I can't do those things."

Ronstadt also shares with Diane Sawyer how another person afflicted with Parkinson's disease gave her encouragement by telling her, "Life after death isn't the question. It's life before death. So when are you going to live and how are you going to do it?"

Ronstadt will also discuss her new autobiography, Simple Dreams.

You can check out the interview on ABC's World News Friday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time.
