American singer/rapper Jeremih has been released from the hospital after a stay for severe complications from COVID-19. Speaking to TMZ Jeremih confirmed his release.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank God and the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for saving my life. I will be forever grateful. I would also like to thank my family and friends for all their prayers and well wishes. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude.
“A special thanks to Chance The Rapper, 50 Cent and Diddy for their love and support. I would like to thank all my fans and people around the world who prayed for me. I’m getting stronger everyday, and look forward to spending time with my sons.
Last month Jeremih, 33, was hospitalized in his hometown of Chicago with COVID-19, and his condition was ‘bleak’ after he was put on a ventilator.
One of his friends, Chance The Rapper wrote: ‘Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, he is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.’
Another rapper to collaborate with Jeremih is 50 Cent. He also showed support on Instagram at the time: ‘Pray for my boy @jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s*** is real. He’s in ICU in Chicago.’
Jeremih’s agent later told Variety: ‘J was just pulled off the ventilator. He’s still in ICU in critical condition. Please keep him in your prayers.’
