The 'It Girl' star shows his appreciation after surviving the horrific touring rehearsal injury.

Jason Derulo has confessed that he is extremely thankful for a "second chance at life" after confessing he was "lucky" to be alive earlier this year after breaking his neck during rehearsals for his now cancelled worldwide tour.

The 'Fight For You' singer has been recovering from the fracture since January and took to his Twitter account earlier today (13th March) to say how grateful he was feeling.

He tweeted: "Lord thank you for this second chance at life.."

Earlier in the week he pondered the irony of his injury stating: "The 1st bone I ever broke was one in my neck.. #What?"

The star has been working on new material over the course of the year and recently unveiled a new remix and video of his song 'It Girl' which features his girlfriend Jordin Sparks.
