Amanda Kloots just released an original song by her late husband Nick Cordero, "Not Far Away." However, she turned the song into a duet, a process she found very therapeutic.


On Thursday, Amanda Kloots shared a special gift in celebration of her third wedding anniversary with her late husband and Broadway star Nick Cordero.

The fitness instructor is proud of the result, and she shared more on how it all came together while giving their family friend, the composer Rickey Minor a sweet nod for his help in getting the song recorded.

Cordero previously wrote one verse and the chorus to the song he titled "Not Far Away." A song about missing his father, he never finished it.

To celebrate the day they said their I dos, Kloots decided to finish the song by adding another chorus during which she sings in duet with Cordero. The result is a beautiful mix and arrangement of their voices together, and something Kloots will never forget, as she said:

"This was one special night. I got to sing with Nick! It was hard living up to my husband's vocals but I closed my eyes and pretended we were on stage."



Sharing the music video to their duet, it featured Kloots reliving memories with Cordero by flipping through their wedding album as their voices beautifully weaved together. Excited about the result, Kloots captioned the video:

"Happy 3rd Anniversary Nick! For your gift, I give you music- the release of your song, Not Far Away. ❤️ I think you’d love it and be very proud."



While Kloots is grateful that she finished the song for the sake of herself and the son she shares with Cordero, the process also helped her on an emotional level.

Recording the song and adding their voices together made Kloots feel very close to her late husband. Cordero passed away early in July at the age of 41 after a lengthy battle with complications from the novel coronavirus, leaving behind Kloots and their son Elvis, who had just turned one the month before.


Cordero spent over 90 days in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles's ICU, a time during which Kloots regularly updated fans about the ups and downs regarding his health.


From their wedding anniversary to the posthumous release of his solo album, to a memorial for Nick Cordero later this month, Kloots previously said that September would be a difficult month for her.

With Kloots' loss still raw, the fitness instructor said that she plans on getting through this time by taking it one day at a time and focusing on the things that bring her joy.
