Janice Freeman, a former contestant on Season 13 of NBC's hit singing competition The Voice, passed away in Pasadena, California, on Saturday. She was 33 at the time of her passing. The singer had suffered a medical emergency in her home and was rushed to a nearby hospital, according to E! News.
According to a statement from Freeman's family, the singer told her husband, Dion, that she was having trouble breathing. He called 911 and performed CPR on the star until paramedics arrived. Freeman was later pronounced dead at the hospital. The cause of death is attributed to an apparent blood clot, which traveled to her heart.
Freeman battled a series of health issues throughout her life, including cervical cancer, lupus, and meningitis, TMZ reported.
The 33-year-old singer is survived by her 12-year-old daughter, Hannah, whose father passed away from cancer when the little girl was only four years old. Freeman remained a single mother for a few years until she met Dion. The two got married in 2016. Freeman is also survived by her cousin, Johanna, who confirmed the sad news of her death in an Instagram post on Saturday.
Johanna shared a video of herself and Freeman singing "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.
