Artists celebrate Mitchell’s 75th birthday
Joni Mitchell didn’t speak or sing a word at an all-star concert in honor of her 75th birthday. She didn’t have to. Showing up was enough.
The Canadian folkie-turned-California singersongwriter ended a 3 1/2year absence from public life Wednesdsay that began when she had an aneurysm in 2015.
Artists including James Taylor, Chaka Khan, Kris Kristofferson and Emmylou Harris serenaded Mitchell with her own songs at the concert at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles.
