Joni Mitchell was voted Person of the Year 2022 by MusiCares. Traditionally, it will be the center of a tribute concert to be held in Los Angeles during Grammy Week. It happens Saturday, January 29th, and the cast has yet to be announced.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Mitchell’s groundbreaking 1971 LP Blue, which she commemorated with a rare appearance in June to thank fans on social media. Mitchell is one of this year’s winners of the Kennedy Center, along with Berry Gordy, Bette Midler, Lorne Michaels and others.
