Joni Mitchell is in “good spirits” after she was rushed to the intensive care unit of a hospital in Los Angeles yesterday.

The 71-year-old musician was found unconscious at her home in Bel Air. She regained consciousness during the ambulance ride to the hospital. The singer-songwriter’s official website released a statement declaring that Mitchell was awake and undergoing tests.

Joni Mitchell’s 1971 album Blue came 30th on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. She has received eight Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. The musician announced in 2007 that she was retiring because of a rare skin condition.
