According to family, Linda began singing the “Theme from A Man and A Woman” at age two, becoming so enthralled of the song, she would chase others down for singing it. Later she fell in love with a waltz her older sister, (New York Artist, Nancy Rodrigo), would practice on the piano, leading her to study classical piano just to learn it. The following year, at eight years old, Linda composed, arranged, and performed her first original piano piece, (also a waltz), at a school musical recital. Three years later the sisters would perform regularly in New York City’s, Central Park, with Nancy on guitar/lead vocals and Linda singing harmony.
Although a move to Hollywood, Florida was a culture shock, she continued playing, composing, and singing. At nineteen she joined musical forces with Roy Smith, (former United Artists Recording Artist), forming Pop / R&B Duo, “Mirror, Mirror”. With gained local popularity, after performing live on local South Florida Cable Network Channel 33, the duo began performing in Augusta, Georgia a few months later.
