News: Amanda Kloots Will Complete and Record Song Written by Her Late Husband, Nick Cordero

Broadway veteran Amanda Kloots recently shared that she is working on a new project to preserve the memory of her late husband, Nick Cordero. Kloots is collaborating with Rickey Minor to finish an original song that Nick started writing before his death.

She writes: "Nick wrote a song about his losing and missing his father, called Not Far Away. He posted it on Instagram, but only wrote one verse and chorus. Our friend Maddox had the idea for me to write the second verse and then sing a duet with Nick. Rickey and @lennywee helped me, added our voices together, mixed and arranged it, then added beautiful strings and chimes to create this new duet."
