Pink: ‘I’ve Never Prayed More In My Life’ Than For Her Sick Son
By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer
Singer Pink detailed how she and her 3-year-old son, Jameson, both had Coronavirus and that she prayed more than she ever had in her life.
In an Instagram live video with her friend and author Jen Pastiloff, Pink revealed how Jameson had “the worst of it” and has been “up and down” while in recovery.
“Jameson has been really, really sick,” the Beautiful Trauma singer said. “I’ve kept a journal of his symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100 temperature. It’s been a different rollercoaster for both of us, but Carey and Willow have been perfectly fine.”
“There were many nights when I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life. It’s funny, but at one point, I thought they promised us our kids would be OK. It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”
Pink said both her and her son have tested negative since having the virus but are still in recovery.
“We’re better than we were. Last week I was on nebulizers [for breathing therapy]. I have asthma really bad, had it for my whole life. It got really, really scary. I’m not gonna lie. In the beginning, all we were hearing was ‘If you’re young, this is 65 and older, thank god our kids are fine.’”
She added that she hoped they “are out of the woods but this thing is a rollercoaster. Just when you think you’re better, something else happens.”
This live stream comes just days after the singer initially told her followers that she and Jameson both had COVID 19.

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
Please pray that Pink and her son continue to make a full recovery from the virus.
