Chance tweeted an encouraging updated alongside a past video of the artists singing with a gospel choir. “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.”

He followed that up with a shout out to front line healthcare workers who helped Jeremih recover. “Thank you to the medical staff at northwestern and thank you to everyone who held him up in prayer even when it seemed so grim, he said. “We are a testimony.”

The “Don’t Tell ‘Em” singer was hospitalized with coronavirus in mid-November and placed on a ventilator. When news hit about Jeremih’s condition, artists from across the genre reached out to show support and love for the ailing singer. 50 Cent tweeted a picture of the pair writing, “pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s*** is real.”

TMZ reported last week the singer’s family said he was transferred out of the ICU and under normal care. They’re using grief to remind people the dangers of ignoring public safety advice and exposing yourself, or others, to the virus.
