"The Voice" star Janice Freeman's cause of death was revealed Thursday, days after she was laid to rest. According to her death certificate obtained by The Blast, the 33-year-old singer died of a pulmonary embolism which was partly caused by Lupus- a condition that Freeman was diagnosed with in 2009 and which she has been very vocal about.
"My attitude when Lupus be trying me! What are you struggling with today? YOU BETTER GIVE IT THIS LOOK AND KEEP IT PUSHING! #youhavethepower," she declared in a post to Facebook last year.
Months later, on March 3, she passed away. At the time, a spokesperson told CNN that "The Voice" star had been suffering from pneumonia and that a blood clot travelling to her heart had caused her death. Her husband performed CPR until an ambulance arrived to rush her to hospital, where she later died.
Over the years Freeman has faced a number of health issues. She had previously been diagnosed with cervical cancer and meningitis, both which she beat. In an interview with Real Health magazine, Freeman said she refused to back down.
"If I’m alive, whether I’m hurting or mentally going through things, such as fighting depression, when you understand your mandate and what you’re supposed to do in this life, you’ve got to push through," she said.
The singer was laid to rest Monday. Her vocal coach from "The Voice," Miley Cyrus, delivered a moving musical tribute during the memorial service, performing "Amazing Grace," on stage with her father Billy Ray Cyrus, Fox News reported.
