Amanda Kloots Reveals Why She Documented Nick Cordero's Coronavirus Battle

If you remember, Amanda Kloots documented her husband Nick Cordero‘s over 90 day hospital battle with Coronavirus before his tragic death on July 5.

She’s now explaining why she provided so many updates on his time in the hospital, including his leg needing to be amputated and how he wasn’t a candidate for a lung transplant later on in his stay.

Nick was sick and in our home for a good week, and I wasn’t saying anything,” Amanda told the New York Times. “And then when he went into the hospital, I thought it was important to share: My husband, who is 41 and has no pre-existing conditions, is now in the ICU after just being tired. Also, my business was online, and I was trying to make money for our family, and I thought if I don’t go public, I’ll be living a lie.”

“He was getting better,” Amanda added about his final days. “They were almost going to take him off the vent. And then he got a terrible infection in his lungs and his fever spiked, his blood pressure dropped, his heart stopped and he died for two minutes, and that was the start of the spiral down. It just felt like he could never catch a break.”

“But it was a different time, and Nick just got trapped,” she added. “I think it would be different if he went to the hospital now.”

Our continued thoughts are with Amanda and their one-year-old son Elvis.

Amanda Kloots Helps Finish Song Late Husband Nick Cordero Previously Recorded

Amanda Kloots is lending her voice for a song previously recorded by her late husband Nick Cordero.

The 39-year-old fitness instructor revealed on Instagram earlier this week that she teamed up with music producer and composer Rickey Minor to help finish her late husband’s song titled “Not Far Away.”

“Tonight I got to work with musical legend Rickey Minor on a very special song, a Nick Cordero original,” Amanda started. “Rickey has been my great friend for years and I’ve watched him win Emmy’s, conduct the Oscars and work with every famous artist like Whitney Houston and Rhianna. Tonight, he said YES to working with me.”

“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,” Amanda wrote. “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.”

“This was one special night… I got to sing with Nick!” Amanda concluded. “It was hard living up to my husbands vocals but I closed my eyes and pretended we were onstage singing this song together. I cried a lot, but Rickey guided me through it every step of the way. I’m so grateful that I’ll have this song always and that Elvis will too. Thank you so much @rickeyminor and @lennywee for taking the time tonight to make me feel like a rockstar.”

Nick passed away earlier this summer from coronavirus complications. Next month, a tribute concert will be held in honor of what would have been Nick‘s 42nd birthday.

Amanda then detailed how she was feeling after picking up Nick‘s ashes.

“It was beyond surreal and horrible. But they’re in my possession and a good friend of mine said some beautiful advice: look at it as you have him with you now,” Amanda said. “Which is really a nice way of looking at it, which is true.”

Amanda shared some of the things that have helped her through this grieving process.
