Singer Joni Mitchell celebrates 75th birthday with tribute concert.

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Groundbreaking musician Joni Mitchell celebrated her 75th birthday on Wednesday (November 7) with a tribute concert in Los Angeles.

The concert featured performances of more than 20 of the pioneering Canadian artist's songs, spanning her career, by James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Chaka Khan and Kris Kristofferson, among others.

Mitchell, one of the stars of the Woodstock era, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and is best known for her highly influential albums in the late '60s and '70s, including "Clouds," "Ladies of the Canyon" and "Blue." Her sprightly soprano voice, one of the most distinctive of her generation, graced such hits as "Big Yellow Taxi, "Free Man in Paris" and "Raised on Robbery." She made a comeback of sorts in 1995 with the album "Turbulent Indigo," which earned Mitchell her third Grammy award, for best pop album.

Mitchell was taken to a Los Angeles-area hospital in early 2015 after being found unconscious in her home from an undisclosed medical emergency.
