[In Memoriam] Broadway Comes Together in Song For Nick Cordero.

This has been a tough time for Broadway.  We lost shows.  We lost jobs.

And sadly, we lost some of our “great ones,” including Nick Cordero.

Nick’s story broke hearts all over Broadway and all over the world.  As I wrote here, I didn’t know him that well.  I met him only a few times at an industry function or two.

But I do remember feeling his “live your life” spirit in his handshake and thinking, “This is a guy I’d like to get to know better.”

That is one of the reasons he was on the shortlist for a show of mine about nine months ago.

That is one of the reasons I was cheering him on from here in what would be the fight of his life against this b@#$% of a virus.

And that is one of the reasons I jumped at the chance to produce the tribute video below along with my friends at Situation Interactive and . . . well . . . just about everyone in the Broadway community.

We knew we had to do something to show his family how much the community cared.  And this is what we came up with.

It premiered at Nick’s memorial service on Broadway On Demand earlier this evening, and now, we share it with you . . . because he shared so much of his talent, spirit and love, with all of us.

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this, including Jeremy Kraus, David Holmes, Matt Yaeger, Stephanie Sciandra, Glenn Slater, Alan Menken, Chazz Palminteri, Doug Besterman, Ron Melrose, Meg Zervoulis, Scott Riesett and the incredible Cordero Choir (the long list of names is in the credits).

This one is for Nick.

And if this video touches you, please consider donating to Save The Music Foundation by texting ‘CORDERO’ to 41444, the charity chosen by Amanda Kloots for his memorial.
