Mitchell’s father underwent urgent brain surgery last week after been diagnosed with an aneurysm. Kel said that he is very close with his dad, James Mitchell, and seeing him in a hospital bed is very hard for him.

We’re like literally best friends, so seeing him this way, that was hard.

Kel, who participates in the current season of DWTS, decided to honor his beloved parent by dedicating his latest performance to him. Mitchell and his partner picked up the song his father loves, “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown, for their dance.

Kel said:

We’re going to do this for dad.

Just wanted to say, my mom had a brain aneurysm 17 years ago. She survived, and I'm glad to hear your dad did as well. That was truly one of the scariest nights of my life.
