Meg Toohey and Sara Bareilles recently released a song in honor of their "Waitress" co-Star, the late Nick Cordero. The touching song is a reflection of the actor's life with his wife and son.


Nick Cordero's friends and colleagues are remembering him. Recently, his friends, Meg Toohey and Sara Bareilles released a song titled "Lucky Streak" in memory of the late actor.

"Lucky Streak" was written and produced by Toohey. The song follows the story of Cordero's life with his wife Amanda Kloots and their one-year-old son, Elvis Eduardo.

It also mirrors the family's move to Los Angeles before his tragic death. While speaking to People, Toohey remembered her late friend as a vibrant and fun-loving person who loved music and enjoyed performing.

Cordero and Toohey were co-stars in the Broadway musical, "Waitress." She recalled that the late actor enjoyed hanging out in the band room where he would talk about his band and guitars. She added:

"The entire cast and crew loved him dearly, and he brought an incredible positive light to any experience he was part of."


While also speaking to People, Bareilles said singing alongside Toohey was a gift. She described the song as a bittersweet story of love and loss. In reaction to the song, Cordero's widow Amanda Kloots described it as a beautiful song.

She addressed the late Broadway star as an angel in Heaven and added that she and their son Elvis will continue to honor him.


She noted that since her husband's passing, the Broadway community has constantly shown love and support to her family. Cordero passed away in July, at 41, after suffering complications from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ever since, his loved ones have continued to honor his memory and legacy. On what would have been his 42nd birthday in September, actress Florence Pugh paid tribute to Cordero with a touching Instagram post.



In the same light, to celebrate her husband, Kloots, who is also a theater actor, shared a heartwarming post featuring pictures from Cordero's last birthday party.

She accompanied it with a tribute where she addressed the late Broadway star as an angel in Heaven and added that she and their son Elvis will continue to honor him.

Though he is long gone, Cordero's memory lives on in the hearts of many, and without a doubt, they will always find special ways to celebrate him and his legacy.
