Janice Freeman, Local Singer and ‘The Voice’ Alum, Dies at 33

Janice Freeman performs on

Miley Cyrus has been left reeling from news that The Voice alum Janice Freeman died at age 33.

Freeman's family issued the following statement to TMZ:"She was at home in Pasadena with her husband, Dion, when she started complaining she couldn't breathe". She passed at around 5:30 PM.

Freeman's manager told TMZ she was battling both bronchitis and lupus, and the blood clot was found in her lungs.

Freeman was a contestant on Season 13 of "The Voice" in 2017. Coached by Miley Cyrus, Freeman left her mark on everyone she met. Posting a photo of a rainbow in the sky, Cyrus thanked Freeman "for everything", noting that the rainbow perfectly represents the late singer. She had beaten cervical cancer by the time she auditioned for the show and vowed to forge a better future for herself, husband, and young daughter.

After Freeman's exit, she and Cyrus stayed in touch, and in 2018, Freeman emotionally revealed on social media that Cyrus had helped her get back on her feet and find housing, paying her family's security deposit and six months' rent. Dion immediately called 911 and performed CPR on Freeman until the paramedics arrived, desperate to keep her alive.

"It's an unexpected shock to all of us", the statement reads. "A survivor and fighter, and a attractive force in this world, Janice gained notoriety through her success on NBC's The Voiceas a member of Miley Cyrus's team".

He commented: "Heaven got another angel @janice_freeman I'll never stop loving you sister although I'm still in disbelief I know that I'll be seeing you soon". Y'all don't understand that you see these people on TV-you see things happening and all of that-but you don't understand that these people are real. "Her heart is so huge and she allows God to use her to bless my life".

"The Voice" singer Janice Freeman has died.

"@MileyCyrus you are one of my closest friends and what you did for me and my family Im praying GOD gives you the desire of your heart!", Freeman said in a tweet.
