‘Voice’ contestant Janice Freeman dead at 33


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Janice Freeman, a contestant on season 13 of ‘The Voice’ died Saturday from an extreme case of pneumonia and a blood clot that traveled to her heart, her family said. She was 33.

NBC News reported she complained that she could not breathe properly Saturday afternoon and her husband performed CPR. He called 911 and continued performing CPR until paramedics arrived. She died at the hospital.

Doctors believe a blood clot had formed in her lungs, causing her death.

Freeman appeared on season 13 of ‘The Voice’ in 2017. She was on the team coached by Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus also supported Freeman financially during her battle with lupus, meningitis and cervical cancer.
