R&B singer Jeremih has shared the first photo of himself since being released from hospital. The 33-year-old endured a scary battle with coronavirus, but appears to have recovered three weeks after news broke that he was on a ventilator in a Chicago hospital and in critical condition. “THANK GOD IM STILL HERE , THANK YA’LL FOR THE [PRAYERS] UP,” he captioned the December 9 selfie, adding the hashtag, “#imbackkkk.”
“Love you!!!!! Miss you!!!!! Can’t wait to hug you so tight next time I see you. Sending loads of love and light your way,” one friend wrote, while another commented, “Wow this just made my day! God is good! You sooo blessed bro love you.” It comes just a few days after the singer issued a statement, confirming he was on the mend. “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,” he told TMZ.
“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,” he added. News of Jeremih’s battle with COVID-19 broke when artists like Chance took to social media.
“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,” he wrote. Meanwhile, 50 Cent took to Instagram, sharing a snap of the pair together, accompanied by a caption which read, “Pray for my boy @jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s**t is real he’s in ICU in Chicago.” Producer Hitmaka shared a snap of the singer, writing, “I need everyone to pray for my brother @jeremih this message is posted with his mothers blessings.”
