After reports surfaced on Saturday, musicians and celebrities took to Twitter to show their support for the 33-year-old singer.
Born and raised in Chicago, Jeremih (born Jeremy Felton), 33, signed with Def Jam in 2009 and has released four full-length albums with the label. His most recent was a 2018 collaboration with Ty Dolla Sign called “Mih Ty,” although he has been featured on singles with Ne-Yo and Kito in recent months. 50 Cent appeared on his 2010 track “Down On Me.”
50 Cent was one of the first to show support for Jeremih’s recovery, posting a photo of the two together on Instagram with the caption: “Pray for my boy @jeremih he’s not doing good this covid shit is real. He’s in ICU in Chicago.”
Chance the Rapper asked his fans to pray for Jeremih on Twitter, writing: “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.”
