Jeremih Triumphantly Throws 1st Chicago White Sox Pitch After Beating COVID-19 Deathbed

together to wish Jeremih a speedy recovery following his

scary COVID-19 diagnosis in 2020. Fortunately, Jeremih

fought back and was back on his feet. To show he was

back to his regular self, Jeremih hit up the Chicago White

Sox game with his sons Pharoah and Canyon.

The Chicago White Sox invited Jeremih last Friday

(August 27) to throw the ceremonial first pitch, and

unlike his close friend 50 Cent’s sad display of an arm, he

got the ball down the strike zone. The multi-platinum

R&B singer and songwriter took over the mound at

Guaranteed Rate Field to overwhelming cheers and

applause, which fueled the White Sox to capture the win.

The White Sox beat their crosstown rival Chicago Cubs in

a thrilling comeback win, 17-13. 


The crowd’s warm welcome was a touching moment for

Jeremih, who was hospitalized and even placed on a

ventilator in intensive care thanks to COVID-19. Jeremih

went into detail about his recent battle with coronavirus

at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital during a

visit Sway’s Universe last year. 


“What I can say is it definitely is real,” he began. “I didn’t

take it for granted, and truth be told, I’m a living walking

testimony to let y’all know. Like man, I was really down

bad for the last month and a half while I was in there. I

don’t even remember the day I went in, that’s how

messed up it was in that whole time in there.”

He added, “I had a tube down my throat for about a week

and a half. I was really like in a dream, and I ain’t gon’ lie

I woke up about two times, and all I remember seeing is a

white light those two times that I was in there.”


The Hollywood Reporter revealed in May that Jeremih is

set to have a role in 50 Cent’s Power Book IV:

Force. Jeremih will be playing the role of Elijah, who

reportedly is a high-ranking member of the CBI, but

knows the drug game well and isn’t afraid to mix it up

and get involved. He’ll “do anything” to prove his loyalty

to the show’s Sampson brothers. We are happy to see

Jeremih has made a full recovery and is back on his
