One of The Voice's most memorable contestants - Season 13's Janice Freeman - has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 33.

According to TMZ, she was at home Saturday in Pasadena, California, when she began having trouble breathing.

TMZ reports that her husband called 911 and performed CPR before paramedics arrived.

The singer battled lupus and symptoms of her condition worsened over the past few months, the outlet reported.

The performer made it to the top 11 on season 13 of The Voice under the mentorship of Miley Cyrus. After the show, Freeman stayed in touch with her coach Miley Cyrus.

Our thoughts are with Janice's loved ones at this hard time.

She was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

Though final autopsy results haven't yet been performed, it appears that a blood clot which traveled to Janice's heart was the cause of the singer's death. It also focused on her recovery from a cervical cancer diagnosis in 2012. "@MileyCyrus you are one of my closest friends and what you did for me and my family Im praying GOD gives you the desire of your heart!"

"Thank you ALL but she found us placement until we found permanent housing, gave me the deposit, covered me for 6 months so I can get on my feet!"

Hudson sent her condolences to the Freeman family via Instagram.

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

On Sunday (Monday AEDT), Cyrus, 26, posted a touching tribute to Freeman on her Instagram Story.
