They also stated in the unwanted announcement: "A survivor and fighter, and a beautiful force in this world, Janice gained notoriety through her success on NBC’s The Voice as a member of Miley Cyrus’s team. Her story inspired fans nationwide, having successfully battled cervical cancer and living her life to the fullest while fighting lupus."
The Voice coach Miley Cyrus immediately paid tribute to her former contestant. "Thank you for everything," she posted a rainbow photo and wrote on her Instagram, "This presents you perfectly."
Coach Jennifer Hudson, who wanted Freeman to be on her team at The Voice, offered her condolence by sharing a video in which Freeman sings Radioactive in the Blind Auditions. "Janice Freeman, the voice of hers we got to hear and the bit of life we got to watch her live was a blessing and inspiration to us all! My heart and prayers go out to her daughter and family!" Jennifer Hudson also tagged Miley Cyrus in her post.

Janice Freeman participated in The Voice season 13 in 2017. She impressed coaches and all audience with her powerful, energetic and emotional voice. Her Radioactive performance prompted two judges Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson to press the red buttons but Freeman chose to be on Team Miley.
Having successfully passed the Blind Auditions, Freeman still maintained a respectable relationship with her coach, Miley Cyrus. This connection continued after she left the competition, when Cyrus helped Freeman pay her rent for six months, and when she became seriously ill and her family was in trouble. Freeman call Cyrus a true friend as a token of her gratitude.
In addition, Freeman's family and friends are thankful for the messages, calls and prayers for the unlucky female singer. They also commanded respect for their privacy.
