R&B singer Jeremih is recovering at home weeks after he was hospitalized with a severe case of COVID-19, his family said in a statement on Saturday.

The 33-year-old artist, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, was placed on a ventilator in the intensive care unit last month at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. His representative said at the time that his condition was "rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions."

In the statement released Saturday and obtained by NBC News, Felton thanked the doctors and nurses "for saving my life."
