Thanks to our friends over at EIT.com for the heads up, check out Steelo’s truley moving and inspiring story and return to the dance floor that was shared tonight on Dancing With The Stars. We mentioned earlier today that Gwen tweeted about and it we’re sure she is so proud and touched to see how far her friend has come! I know I personally got goosebumps watching it!
Gwen took to Twitter this afternoon to plug tonight’s edition of Dancing With The Stars which will feature a touching tribute to Steelo (and he’ll be performing!), her former dancer who tragically suffered a life-threatening brain injury. It’s been revealed that an interview with Gwen and backstage footage of the latest benefit this last December is included in the upcoming 444 documentary. We will be tuning in for sure and still are sending our thoughts and prayers to both Steelo and his family during this unimaginable tough time.
@gwenstefani Watch my friend @Steelo444 perform and hear his inspiring story tonight on Dancing With the Stars! #DWTS #444movie
NoDoubt.com — Steelo Vazquez will be performing tonight on Dancing with the Stars. Many fans remember Steelo as a talented dancer in Gwen Stefani’s Early Winter video as well as a performer during her Sweet Escape Tour.
On June 19th, 2011, Steelo suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and has since undergone emergency surgery and therapy to help him walk and speak again. In December 2011 the Los Angeles dance community held a fundraiser for Steelo and created a documentary called “444” which features a short interview with Gwen.
After months of recovery, Steelo is fighting his way back and will be performing with the Groovaloos tonight on Dancing With The Stars. Watch his inspiring story and performance tonight on ABC at 9/8c!
