"To hug you one more time @janicefreeman .... I made a promise to you here on earth and will keep that promise as you watch from heaven . To take care of your precious little girl , my baby sister . To shine light on your husband and mother when days are dark ! I love you," Cyrus captioned the Instagram video.
It's not entirely clear what steps exactly Cyrus will be taking to care for Freeman's daughter, but given that Cyrus has had a personal interest in the singer's career even beyond The Voice, we're sure she will make good on her promise.
On March 4, Cyrus shared a picture of her and Freeman in matching leopard print jumpsuits captioning her initial emotions after learning of her passing. "I miss you so much it hurts.," she wrote. "So much pain and no one would ever notice because of the smile and joy you constantly radiated."
Freeman was open about her series of health plights, revealing in her blind audition that she had overcome cancer. She later opened up about her battles with meningitis and lupus. In a statement announcing her death, a representative from Freeman's team called her a "survivor and fighter" and a "beautiful force in this world."
