Jeremih, who was hospitalized due to complications caused by COVID-19, has been moved out of the intensive care unit (ICU) as he recovers from the life-threatening illness.

The singer-songwriter’s family issued a statement on his recovery Saturday and noted that he has been transferred “out of ICU,” Billboard first reported. The statement also confirmed that he is still suffering from COVID-19 and will spend the coming days in a regular hospital room.

According to his family, Jeremih’s “true healing” is set to begin now.

“Thank you all for your continued prayers and wishes,” Jeremih’s family wrote.

The news comes a few days after it was reported that the “Impatient” hitmaker was on a ventilator in an ICU. The statement, issued by Jeremih’s representative, confirmed that the 33-year-old musician was battling a severe case of COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions,” the statement read.

Several of his fellow artists shared messages of support on social media, saying they were praying for his recovery. Notable personalities like Chance the Rapper, 50 Cent and Toni Braxton urged people to stay safe and pray for the singer.

“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,” Chance the Rapper wrote on Twitter.

“Pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid s--t is real,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram.

“Keeping Jeremih in my prayers,” Braxton wrote in a separate message.

Jeremih started his professional music career in 2009 after signing a record deal with Def Jam Recordings. His debut single, titled “Birthday Sex,” became a huge success and peaked at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As of late, the musician has produced four studio albums and became one of the brightest R&B singers. In 2016, he was nominated for a Grammy in the best R&B performance category for the song “Planez.”
