Joni Mitchell made a rare appearance to celebrate her 75th birthday.
The iconic Canadian singer-songwriter has scarcely been seen in public since she suffered a brain aneurysm in 2015. Mitchell was the guest of honour during Night 2 of the “Joni 75” tribute concert on Wednesday.
The show featured tribute performances by Chaka Khan, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Seal, Brandi Carlile, and many more.
Mitchell took in the show from the sidelines but stepped to the stage to blow out the birthday candles as the crowd serenaded her with “Happy Birthday”.
Mitchell even swayed a little as the performers closed out the show with a cover of her hit song “Big Yellow Taxi”.
Prior to her special celebration on Wednesday, Mitchell was spotted at a James Taylor show in June and at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammys party in 2017.
