Canadian icon Joni Mitchell is being honoured in Los Angeles this week with a star-studded, two-day gala celebration marking her 75th birthday.
JONI 75: A Birthday Celebration is taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday at The Music Centre, where artists including James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Seal and Chaka Khan will perform songs from Mitchell's extensive repertoire. Canadian musicians Diana Krall and Rufus Wainwright are also taking part.
Known for timeless classics such as Both Sides Now and Big Yellow Taxi, the legendary singer-songwriter is expected to make an appearance at Wednesday evening's soirée — her actual birthday.
Mitchell has been spotted in public only a handful of times in L.A. where she lives since being hospitalized for a brain aneurysm in 2015. Fans were told at the time that she was expected to make a full recovery, however details of her physical health have been kept private in recent years.
