Jeremih Posts First Photos Since Near-Fatal COVID Battle: 'Thank God I’m Still Here'

Jeremih is grateful to be alive following his life-threatening battle with COVID-19.

In his first post since his monthlong hospitalization, the hitmaker, 33, shared some heartfelt words after enduring a difficult case with the coronavirus, which required him to be placed on a ventilator in the ICU, according to TMZ.

"THANK GOD IM STILL HERE , THANK YA’LL FOR THE 🙏🏾 UP #imbackkkk," Jeremih wrote in his Instagram post, which featured before-and-after photos from his time in the hospital to his recovery.

"To God be the Glory 🙌🏼🙏🏼❤️," one person wrote. "I Been praying for you 🙏🏽🙏🏽," commented another."

His loved one chimed in, "God is good Cuzzo! So happy to see ur doing well."

Fellow star Chance The Rapper — who has been updating the public about Jeremih's health — liked the photo.

"I AM FILLED WITH PRAISE RIGHT NOW," Chance tweeted last week. "I JUST HEARD MY BROTHER JEREMIH’S VOICE ON THE PHONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST A MONTH."

"HE WILL BE OUT THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW," Chance continued. "WE GIVE ALL GLORY TO THE FATHER IN JESUS NAME."

After rap star 50 Cent announced the R&B singer's diagnosis last month, Chance tweeted a call-to-action, requesting that his followers pray for Jeremih.

"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," Chance tweeted in mid-November. "I believe in the healing power of Jesus, so if you can, for me, please, please say a prayer over him."

Fans and famous pals alike — including Meek Mill, Big Sean and Toni Braxton — quickly shared their support on the social media platform and assured that they would keep the "Planez" star in their prayers.
