Grammy-winning singer Karol G broke her silence Friday after smoke filled the cockpit of her private jet and was forced to abruptly land in Los Angeles.

“Thanks to all who have shown concern and who have sent messages,” the 33-year-old singer wrote in Spanish to her Instagram story.

“My family, my team, and I are all doing very well and are grateful for the new opportunity. God takes care of us and blesses us daily with life and health.”

Karol G, whose real name is Carolina Giraldo Navarro, was aboard the private Gulfstream aircraft that took off from Burbank airport Thursday evening before experiencing the scare mid-flight.
