Folk Legend Joni Mitchell Has Been Hospitalized

Singer found unconscious in her home.

Joni Mitchell has been hospitalized after she was found unconscious in her home in Los Angeles Tuesday (Mar. 31).

TMZ reports that paramedics rushed the legendary folk singer to the hospital after receiving a 911 call. Although she was reportedly alert on the way to the hospital, her condition is described as “quite serious.”

The Canadian songwriter was picked up from her address in Bel Air around 2:30 on Tuesday, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Mitchell, 71, an eight-time Grammy winner, is best known for her seminal hit songs “Help Me,” “River” and Big Yellow Taxi.” Hers was the voice of the Woodstock generation, and she's inspired countless artists of the generations after.

Mitchell's music helped define the ‘60s and ‘70s and, deservedly, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
