Joni Mitchell is reported to be in “good spirits” after being admitted to intensive care at a US hospital. The 71-year-old was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday after being found unconscious at her home in Bel Air.
According to a statement on her official website, the singer is awake and undergoing tests.
The statement continues, “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.”
Mitchell told Billboard magazine in December that she has a rare skin condition, Morgellons disease, which prevents her from performing.
Mitchell has received eight Grammy Awards, including a lifetime achievement award in 2002. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Her most recent release was a four-CD anthology.
