Now, Janice is set to make her big comeback with a brand new version of 'Dreamer', teaming up with international DJ, DJ Lodato.
From taking a long hiatus to care for her sick parents, raising two daughters, teaming up with DJ David Morales, to her stint on The X Factor, Janice has certainty had an interesting few decades since 'Dreamer' was released.
Chatting to Daily Star, Janice said:
"I know my life, and it is inspiring. I handled all this, I just take it in. One minute I'm in Italy and living it up, and then I'm standing in front of 24 students in a classroom and I'm looking them in the eye and teaching them about goals and purpose.
"If I can get one person to understand that they have a purpose, then I am giving something to humanity."
After taking care of her family, Robinson was then asked if she would like to become a teacher, where she lives in Florida, in which she is the equivalent of an English teacher in the UK.
Janice is also set to release a documentary this year, in which she will chat about her life and career.

Talking about the documentary and X Factor, she said:
"I'm going to speak about the beautiful side of that experience, and that was that it created a lot of hope for people. When they found out I was 50, it made them feel like you could just go out and do what you love.
"When you love something it never feels like work. I just believe in myself."
However, being on The X Factor made Janice feel like she was in "Back to The Future" as she said she was "still in the '90".
She said: "Now kids want to be like a TV contestant, it wasn't like that in my day. You really had to show up with the goods, you didn't get glam squads or a team to make you a star.
"Being in that house... I enjoyed the facials, I enjoyed the trainers, makeup artists, dinner, for me it was like a spa."

'Dreamer' Janice Robinson and DJ Lodato will be released on 25th February to download and stream, Robinson is extremely happy and thrilled with the release.
"The drop is at a different time, it's really interesting the way it's been done. I was never thinking of re-recording, but the thing I like most about the rework is how I sound.''
"With all the technology, and my voice is older, it sounds like it could be Dua Lipa singing - I probably inspired Dua Lipa and now Dua Lipa is inspiring me!"
Janice continued: "I'm so excited for the people, so excited for this generation. I want to see the kids doing it, I want to see them rapping it.''
