She had described her battle against coronavirus on Facebook.
Three days after the singer was admitted to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital she wrote: "I can barely move without losing my breath completely. I can just about talk in sentences.
“I’m in and out of sleep but my breathing wakes me up. It feels like someone is stomping on my chest and back. It feels like I’m going backwards – I guess things get worse before they get better.
“This is so real. The ward I’m on is full. There are six nurses and healthcare assistants and 36+ patients.
"They’re overwhelmed. Please be careful please be safe. I was and look where it got me.”
Kyanna, who sang with the Norwich Community Choir, had been shielding since March, The Mirror reported.
Since childhood she had been suffering from brittle asthma, which is a rare and severe form of the disease.
Please be careful please be safe. I was and look where it got me.
Kyanna was admitted to hosptial after an asthma attack and tested positive for Covid-19.
Mum Kirstie, 48, also tested positive for the virus.
She told The Mirror how Kyanna was first given an oxygen mask and then a bubble hood.
Kyanna's last post online was on January 21 and read: "Come on people let’s find some strength and love and fight this together.”
Three days later she was placed on life support.
Kirstie said she couldn't see her daughter at the time becuase she was also battling the virus, but the pair would Facetime.
She told the paper: "The last time we spoke was before she was placed on full ventilation and she asked me, ‘Mum, be honest, do I look any better?’
"I joked that she needed a hair wash. That was the last conversation we had."
The mum said she was "distraught" when the doctor said there was nothing more they could do for Kyanna.
Kirstie and her sister held one of Kyanna's hands as the life support machine was switched off.
Kyanna's friends have started a GoFundMe page to help give the singer the send off she deserves.
