Janice Freeman, who once sang on The Voice and quickly became one of Miley Cyrus' favorite stars on the reality music competition show, has died.

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". Her husband, Dion, gave her CPR until the paramedics arrived but they couldn't save her.

Freeman is best known for her impressive appearance on season 13 of The Voice back in 2017, when she went very deep into the season as part of Team Miley, under the guidance of Miley Cyrus.

Her biography from her time on the show said Freeman's goal in achieving a successful music career was to "provide stability" for her daughter Hannah.

Freeman's friend Crystal Lewis, also a gospel singer, remembered Freeman on Instagram, writing, "We only met in person one time but we continued to communicate and I have to say few people IN MY WHOLE LIFE were as encouraging".

Freeman was pronounced dead at the hospital at 5:30 p.m.

In January of 2018, Freeman explained on her Instagram story how Cyrus had covered six months' worth of rent for her. She'd previously survived cancer but still struggled with lupus.

The singer, who starred on the U.S. version of the singing competition, passed away on Saturday from a blood clot, according to TMZ.

Cyrus, 26, shared a sweet tribute to Freeman on her Instagram Sunday with a picture of a rainbow poking out above the trees. "This represents you perfectly".
