Apparently, Rezz had been under the weather lately. She took to Twitter to let her fans know she was okay and thank them for their concern. The originating post is here:
Good afternoon I didn’t wanna tell u guys but I have been SICK AF all week like insane fevers I was actually starting to worry but I am getting better now Hello I’m drinking orange juice

As innocent as the post is, it still led to Jauz coughing-up his own experience. He details having a 104-degree fever at a Las Vegas performance that left him too weak to climb the stairs to his hotel. His post can be seen here:
I played a day club show in Vegas once with a 104 degree fever and it was one of the best residency shows I ever did, I ended up giving so much energy during the set and then when it was done I litterally couldn’t walk back up the stairs to my hotel 😂

Because of this, a lightbulb went off for Rezz and got her wondering if any others showed similar dedication. Naturally, like everything on Twitter, it spread like the plague to dozens of other artists who couldn’t resist chiming in. Check the thread out here:

We Should All Be This Dedicated
Easily, this should make anyone think back about their own illness and dedication related moments. We’ve all had those nights praying to the porcelain gods that lead to a swift call to the office as a result. Consider the results had you not called in, however. Would you have been able to rally and put on a praise-worthy performance at your 9-5? Probably not.
This is not to take away from the dedication of an artist suffering from any major ailments. Furthermore, it goes without saying that the health of any individual should come first. However, it is honorable for these professionals to suck-it-up for the fans like this. Even if it’s just for an hour or two. Along with that, they likely had to do it in front of thousands of screaming fans who were none the wiser. That kind of dedication is sickening and deserves some respect.
