The singer also shared a message of hope to people who lost a loved one or experienced complications due to the virus. In a statement to Fox News, Gatlin commented:

“To you who have been terribly sick or have lost friends or loved ones, my heartfelt prayers go out to you. I have a lot of character flaws and defects you can pray about if you want to.
