The Voice contestant dies aged 33

Janice Freeman, who was a contestant on the NBC singing competition show "The Voice" in 2017, has died. Around the same time, Miley also rekindled her relationship with the Australian actor, Liam Hemsworth, whom she eventually married this past year in 2018.

Freeman was reportedly at home with her husband on Saturday when she started complaining that she was having trouble breathing. Her husband, Dion, gave her CPR until the paramedics arrived but they couldn't save her.

Freeman joined Miley Cyrus' team and made it all way up to the Top 11.

Hudson sent her condolences to the Freeman family via Instagram.

Freeman was then rushed to a nearby hospital where she would not recover.

Freeman had previously alerted fans to her ongoing health troubles last month, sharing, "It has been a hard, trying, discouraging, mentally draining, etc last 3 months I have had to deal with in a very long time!" The two had actually maintained contact following Freeman's elimination on the voice, as just past year Freeman had posted an emotional video online thanking Cyrus for her support.

Freeman was a favorite on "The Voice" despite being voted off.

"Thank you @janicefreeman. for everything", Cyrus wrote. According to her manager, the singer had been battling bronchitis and lupus. And now this ... please do yourself a favor and listen to her performances. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Janice and her family.

Cyrus posted a tribute to Freeman on her Instagram story, with an image of a rainbow and the words, "This represents you perfectly".

Freeman's blind audition for "The Voice" saw her perform a rendition of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive", which turned Jennifer Hudson and Cyrus' chairs. "And may God rest her too-young soul", MSNBC host Joy Reid tweeted.
