Freeman has called Miley "my dog and my best friend."
She had done well on "The Voice," advancing to the Top 11 in 2017 and becoming one of Miley Cyrus's favorite contestants in the process. Miley posted an image of a rainbow on Instagram with a caption that reads, "Thank you @janicefreeman ... for everything. This represents you perfectly."
Janice is survived by her husband and her daughter.
