Sandie Rinaldo hosts this intimate portrait of one of Canada's most beloved personalities
For the first time on Television, MacNeil acknowledges a terrible secret she has harboured for years. But personal setbacks have failed to prevent her from living her dream with talent and integrity intact.
Sprinkled with performance, the documentary takes a revealing look at the personal history and rise to fame of the singer, prolific songwriter, television and recording artist, businesswoman, author and recipient of the Order of Canada. This extraordinary woman has achieved success despite overwhelming odds, and she has done so with great warmth, humanity and good humour.
Rita MacNeil: On A Personal Note was produced by Bronwyn Warren and Millan Curry-Sharples. David Storey directed.
