Joni Mitchell: Highlight Of Her Incredible Career
Joni is one of the most legendary and influential singer-songwriters in music history. With hits like “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Woodstock” Joni defined a generation, and set the bar high for women in music.
Her musical inspiration stems a lot from her personal life. In 1965, Joni gave birth to a baby girl, Kelly Dale Anderson, though she gave her up for adoption because she was unable to provide for her. Kelly is said to be the subject of Joni’s song “Little Green” among others.
Joni also happens to be one of Taylor Swift’s biggest musical inspirations. In April 2012, it was even reported that Taylor was in the running to portray Joni in the adaptation of Girls Like Us, which centers on Joni, Carol King and Carly Simon. However, Joni shot down that idea, according to Rolling Stone.
Our thoughts go out to Joni and her loved ones as she recovers.
