UPDATED April, 1, 2015: According to Joni Mitchell’s official website late Tuesday night:

“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.”

Reported March 31, 2015:

Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell was rushed to a hospital earlier today according to a report on Billboard.com after being found unconscious in her home.

The story cites TMZ.com with a report that paramedics went to her L.A. home responding to a call about an unconscious female. TMZ.com states the female patient was alert in the ambulance.

The eight-time Grammy winner is perhaps best-known for her ’70s hits “Big Yellow Taxi,” “Both Sides Now” and “Free Man in Paris” and “River” among others. Her most recent album, “Shine” was released in 2007.

In her memoir, “Joni Mitchell, In Her Own Words (Conversations with Malka Marom),” released last year, Mitchell revealed she has been suffering for years from a rare condition called Morgellons disease which she claimed made her believe some kind of threadlike parasites were living under her skin.

Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
