According to a press release, the one-hour event will "feature incredible visual and live vocal performances" from songs off the recently re-released album. 

The news of the re-release of the album, and the performance, come at a special time for Jeremih after he was discharged from the hospital after a scary battle with COVID-19.

Speaking on Sway's Universe, Jeremih explained what his hospital stay was like while being near death.  “I had a tube down my throat for about a week and a half," he said. "I was really like, in a dream. I woke up two times, and all I remember seeing is a white light.”

"I’ve never been to a hospital in my entire life," he added. "Not for a broken bone, not for nothing. So, just to be in there, I look at it as a blessing. As crazy as it might sound, I needed to sit down. I needed to take a break.”
