The R&B artist was admitted to intensive care last month with COVID-19 before being released from ICU on November 21.

Sharing a statement with TMZ, Jeremih said: “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.

The 33-year-old contracted a “severe” case of COVID-19, a representative for the singer said last month.

Jeremih’s spokesperson said: “The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions.

“There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others. Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently. Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body.”
