Over the weekend, Joni Mitchell made her first public appearance since being hospitalized in spring of 2015 for a brain aneurysm. Details about the iconic folk singer's health have been shrouded in mystery, but a picture posted on Mitchell's website shows that she's apparently recovered well.

Mitchell took a trip to see jazz pianist Chick Corea at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles this weekend, and was snapped with friends. A on her site reads, "We are thrilled to see Joni out and about again!”

Mitchell was in serious condition in May 2015 when she was rushed to the hospital. She had reportedly fallen ill two months prior. Her friend Leslie Morris had been appointed to make medical decisions for Mitchell that July.
