Amanda Kloots pays tribute to late husband Nick Cordero with memorial


Amanda Kloots paid tribute to her late husband Nick Cordero with an intimate memorial on Saturday, a few days after the Broadway actor died due to complications from the coronavirus.”We had a little memorial yesterday with close family and friends,” Kloots said on Instagram on Sunday. “I said, ‘Nick wanted it to be a celebration. Let’s try to laugh, share beautiful stories and sing for him and for his memory. He would have loved it. It was beautiful and perfect. His spirit was definitely there. ”

Kloots said she and her loved ones listened to “I’m Here” from “The Color Purple”, noting some of the lyrics to the song “hit [her] hard. ”

“Nick and I watched this show on Broadway years ago and we left the theater in tears, speechless,” said Kloots. “When it was played last night, the lyrics of the second half of the song struck me hard. Really, I’m scared. Fear of my new normal, of pain, of loss and of being strong enough to get through. But, I know Nick is above routing for me, believing in me and hoping for me. ”

Kloots added that even though she has a “long journey ahead”, she knows that Cordero wants her to “live this new life” and to be “the best version” of herself for their son Elvis, one year old.

“I promised her at the hospital that I would try to do it.” So when I heard these words yesterday, I thought, “Okay. When I doubt that I can get out, I play this song. It will be my motto, “said Kloots.

“It is a long journey ahead and a road on which I never thought I would be,” she continued. “No one can tell me how to do it, I have to do it. I can do it right, I can do it wrong. There is no perfect way. One day, one step at a time. I have faith that God is showing the way and that Nick is our angel. ”

Kloots concluded his article with the lyrics to “I’m Here”, encouraging followers to listen to Cynthia Erivo’s performance.

“If you don’t know this song and also need a currency, here are the lyrics. Treat yourself by listening to @cynthiaerivo sing it, “said Kloot.

Last Sunday, Kloots confirmed that Cordero died after a several-month fight against COVID-19. He was 41 years old.

After Cordero’s death, Hollywood and the Broadway community paid tribute to Tony’s nominee, who had previously appeared in “Waitress” and “Rock of Ages”.

On Tuesday, Kloots thanked the fans for their continued support, also sharing family photos that she found on Cordero’s phone.
