Two-time Emmy-nominated actor, comedian, and pastor, Chicago actor, Kel Mitchell is on a new mission. Many know him from his starring roles in the Nickelodeon series Kenan & Kel, All That, and the film Good Burger. In his book, “Blessed Mode,” Kel Mitchell shares the spiritual side of himself and is on a mission to help others feel the power of God’s presence to help people find freedom and blessing in their lives.
A married father of four, Kel Mitchell is a youth pastor at Spirit Food Christian Center and is passionate about sharing his testimony of hope with the next generation. In Blessed Mode, Kel Mitchell offers 90 powerful devotions.
“As you read through the pages of Blessed Mode, you will learn that in every emotional wall there is a blessed way out! You will be breaking through these walls widening that crack of light a little bit, day by day, so you can discover God’s blessings on you,” said Kel Mitchell.
In March 2022, Mitchell released his new single “Blessed Mode” inspired by the devotional. The uplifting hip-hop track and workout anthem seeks to inspire, uplift, and motivate. “Blessed Mode” ft. nobigdyl and Scootie Wop is the ultimate anthem to make you feel good, whether you’re in the gym, working out at home, or just looking for that pep talk to lift you up and hype you up,” said Kel Mitchell. “This is a return to music for me, but the song specifically was inspired by the Hip Hop tracks I love to play as motivation for my students through my ministry, where we often listen to music to get ready to pray together. In the same way that I hope the book can inspire others to embrace their blessings and find strength spiritually, mentally, and physically, I hope this song serves as the soundtrack to activate others’ BLESSED MODE!”
