Dion then performed CPR and called 911 before paramedics arrived.

A spokesperson told Entertainment Tonight about her passing: “It’s an unexpected shock to all of us.”

“She had traveled to Kansas City just a week ago (Friday, Feb 22) to perform at a gala one of my client’s was sponsoring, and performed beautifully,” the spokesperson said. “She felt very weak the next morning, and my clients were very concerned and suggested she check into an ER before getting back on a plane, but Janice chose to fly home to L.A.”

“I don’t know if she did any performances between now and then,” they said.

Freeman was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 5:30 p.m.
