Reps for the Canadian legend, who’s known for classics like “Both Sides Now” and “Big Yellow Taxi,” have been providing updates on her social media accounts:

“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.” [via Facebook]

Mitchell’s most recent public appearance was during Grammys weekend in February, when she attended a pre-show salute to music exec Martin Bandier.
