Jeremih appears to be on the mend after battling a case of the novel coronavirus.

The 33-year-old singer, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, has been transferred out of the intensive care unit and is on the road to recovery, one week after news broke that he was hospitalized and put on a ventilator, according to a Saturday report from TMZ.

His family confirmed the news, telling TMZ and Entertainment Tonight in a statement, "Jeremih has been transferred out of ICU. He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room. The true healing begins. Thank you all for your prayers and wishes."

A rep for Jeremih did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
