“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,” the R&B singer told the outlet.
“I would also like to thank my family and friends for all their prayers and well wishes. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude,” he added. “A special thanks to Chance The Rapper, 50 Cent and Diddy for their love and support.”
The three rappers have been very vocal asking fans for their prayers and support for the “Don’t Tell ‘Em” singer.
On Friday, Chance gave his followers an encouraging update on Jeremih’s health status.
“I AM FILLED WITH PRAISE RIGHT NOW I JUST HEARD MY BROTHER JEREMIH’S VOICE ON THE PHONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST A MONTH,” the rapper tweeted. “HE WILL BE OUT THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW WE GIVE ALL GLORY TO THE FATHER IN JESUS NAME.”
In November, Jeremih was hospitalized in the intensive care unit with the novel virus and placed on a ventilator. At one point his condition was described as “bleak.”
After the “oui” singer’s condition improved and was transferred out of the ICU, his family released a statement.
“The family believes daily prayers to God. A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through,” the statement read. “He’s not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon, and makes a full recovery.”
