Joni Mitchell in ‘Intensive Care’
Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is in intensive care after being found unconscious at her Los Angeles home.
She was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
A statement released on her website said she “regained consciousness on the ambulance ride to an LA area hospital.”
It went on to add that the eight-time Grammy winner is “currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits.”
In December she told Billboard magazine that she has a rare skin condition, Morgellons Disease, which prevents her from performing.
Her website urged fans to keep her in their thoughts.
“Light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way.”
Best known for her 1970 hit Big Yellow Taxi, Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
