Singer Jeremih, whose real name is Jeremy Phillip Felton, is reportedly in the hospital following a corona virus diagnosis. According to TMZ, the 33-year-old star has been taken to the ICU and has been placed on a breathing ventilator. The outlet reports "his condition has recently gotten worse."

It's unclear when the "Imma Star" singer tested positive for COVID-19 and how long he was hospitalized. It's also unknown if his current condition is due to COVID-19 or other complications stemming from the diagnosis.

Following the news about Jeremih's health, musicians banded together to send their love and support to him. Chance the Rapper, 50 Cent and many others took to social media with special messages.

"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 the Rapper, fellow Chicago native, shared on Twitter."I believe in the healing power of Jesus, so if you can for me, please please say a prayer over him."

50 Cent wrote on Twitter "pray for my boy Jeremih he's not doing good this covid s--t is real." The rapper later added on Instagram "He's in ICU in Chicago."

Rapper Hitmaka was one of the first artists to speak out about Jeremih's health. The two previously worked together on hits like "Giv No Fxks" with Migos, and "Dangerous" with Meek Mill and PnB Rock.

"I need everyone to pray for my brother @jeremih this message is posted with his mothers [sic] blessings," Hitmaka captioned his Instagram post.

Get Well Soon Jeremih!
