Six months after revealing her cancer diagnosis via a heartfelt letter to her fans, Jo Dee Messina's team has shared a long-awaited update on the singer's health.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Messina's team begins by thanking her fans for the outpouring of love and support that followed her diagnosis, before revealing that not only is she "feeling well," she's also busy working on new music.

"That new music speaks directly to where Jo Dee's heart was during a tumultuous summer and where it remains today—a place of gratitude for an unconditional, real, and faithful love," the post continues.

The statement went on to describe how Messina relied on her faith throughout her battle with cancer.

"In the midst of health, personal life, and financial struggles, at a time when she felt as though the waves were crashing down around her, Jo Dee's heart was moved to focus on the enormity of God. Casting away the chaos and confusion, she praised and worshiped Him, and from that place came a song of which she is incredibly proud."
