Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is in intensive care after being found unconscious at her home in Los Angeles. It is still unknown as to what is the cause of the illness, but the 71-year old singer was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon. A statement released on her website stated; “Joni was found unconscious in her home this afternoon. She regained consciousness on the ambulance ride to an L.A. area hospital. She is currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits. More updates to come as we hear them. Light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way.”
In December Mitchell told Billboard magazine that she had a rare skin condition, called Morgellons disease, which is preventing her from performing. She stated “I can’t sing any more – don’t miss it. I can’t play any more – don’t miss it. I’ve got all these instruments laying around and hopefully one day I’ll pick them up”.
Joni Mitchell has released 19 original albums over the span of her career, with her last album “Shine” being released in 2007. She is best known for her 1970 hit “Big Yellow Taxi”. Joni Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Her 1971 album, Blue, is ranked 30th on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
