Cat Janice, TikTok singer who dedicated her last song to her son, has died at the age of 31


Cat Janice, a musician who went viral on TikTok for dedicating her final song to her young son, has died of sarcoma cancer at the age of 31.

Announcing the singer’s death on her Instagram, Janice’s family said she died peacefully on Wednesday morning in her childhood home.

“We are forever grateful for the outpouring of love Catherine and our family have received over the past few months,” they said.

“Cat has seen her music go places she never expected and she rests at peace knowing that she will continue to provide for her son through her music. This would not have been possible without all of you. Thank you .”

Earlier this year, the musician shared a teaser for her song Dance You Outta My Head, claiming that “cancer had won” and that all proceeds would be donated to her seven-year-old son.

Since its release on January 19, the title has reached first place in the rankings Tic Tac Billboard Top 50 and worked its way into the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Janice was diagnosed with sarcoma, a rare malignant tumor, in her scalene muscle in 2022, and has been posting regular updates on social media for her fans about her condition.

She announced from her hospital bed that she was cancer-free in July 2022, but discovered it had returned and spread to his lungs late last year.

The singer shared online that at one point her tumors tripled almost overnight and said in January she was at home in hospice.

Her final social media post was a duet video – in reaction to singer Sarah Cothran covering Dance You Outta My Head – in which she said: “The last few weeks have been so difficult for me.

“I’m unable to walk, stuck in my body. This has been the hardest thing emotionally I’ve had to go through. But this beautiful cover reminded me of the importance of this song.

“Soon I’ll be free… soaring in the next dimension, shining like a million fireflies, flying through the skies, dancing with God and my Nonnie. This song reminded me of what’s coming. Thank you Sarah. I hope to see you all there one day.”

The family said Janice told them she had “other artwork she wanted to share as well” and that it would be released “in due course.”

Janice’s brother, Cubby, will memorialize her social media accounts and manage all operations surrounding her music, merchandise and public relations.

He said in a personal tribute Instagram: “It’s heartbreaking to have to face the next chapter of life without her. Without my mentor. My inspiration. My goal setter.

“The one who never gave me a break because she always knew I could do better. Every time I brought her a song, she would tear it apart and rebuild it into a work of art that I was proud.

“It’s a brotherly dynamic that I will forever thank God for.”
