Joni Mitchell was hospitalized earlier this month, after she was found unconscious in her Los Angeles home. The first report regarding Mitchell’s condition stated the singer was in an intensive care unit in a Los Angeles hospital. There hasn’t been any updated information about Mitchell, until TMZ reported yesterday that the singer had slipped into a coma. TMZ and several other media sources claimed Mitchell’s condition was far worse than the initial reports had led the public to believe.

After TMZ published their story that Mitchell was unresponsive and in a coma, the singer’s website quickly disputed the claims. “Contrary to rumors circulating on the Internet today, Joni is not in a coma. Joni is still in the hospital, but she comprehends, she’s alert, and she has her full senses,” the statement read. The statement also claimed Mitchell is expected to make a full recovery, and it stated the singer will have 24-hour doctor care when she leaves the hospital. “As we all know, Joni is a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up the fight. Please continue to keep Joni in your thoughts,” according to the website. Fans can send the legend their well wishes on this website

Joni Mitchell has released nineteen studio albums during her legendary music career. Some of her projects include Songs to a Seagull, Blues, Clouds, Ladies of the Canyon, For the Roses, The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Mingus, Chalk Mark in a Rain Storm, Dog Eat Dog, and Shine. Mitchell’s Shine album was released eight years ago, and it is currently her latest solo studio project. In its first week, the album sold over 40,000 copies, and it reached Number 14 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Shine also impacted the music charts in the UK, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Ireland, and Australia.

A tribute album entitled A Tribute to Joni Mitchell was released in 2007. Bjork, Prince, Sarah McLachlan, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, Annie Lennox, and others honored Mitchell by covering some of her most recognizable songs. Some of the songs featured on the 12-track Joni Mitchell tribute album included “River” by James Taylor, “Blue” by Sarah McLachlan, “A Case of You” by Prince, and “The Boho Dance” by Bjork.
