She appeared on Miley Cyrus' team on The Voice in 2017 and made it to the top 11 that season. The "We Can't Stop" singer developed a close bond with Janice, so much so that she helped her out financially when Janice and her family were trying to find a place to live.

“Miley, I’m telling y’all, that woman is no joke,” Janice said in tearful Instagram video. “She put me and my family in a wonderful two bedroom apartment until I found something."
