Nick Cordero has tragically passed away after spending 94 days in hospital fighting for his life due to COVID-19 related complications.
The 41-year-old Broadway alum’s death was announced by wife Amanda Kloots on Sunday.
‘God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth,’ she wrote.

Cordero was first admitted to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital in late March after testing positive for the coronavirus.
The Bullets Over Broadway star had to have one of his legs amputated on April 18 after suffering from blood clots, while being on a ventilator.
While admitted, Nick also endured numerous other complications, including two small strokes, septic shock, and fungus in his lungs, as reported by wife Amanda.
In a series of updates shared to Instagram this week, Amanda claimed that her husband was ‘doing slightly better’ after coming down from his blood pressure medication on Thursday.
In an interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, Amanda said that the ‘ultimate goal’ was for Nick to have a double lung transplant in order for him to live the life he ‘would want.’
But she warned that a ‘lot of things would have to line up’ in order for him to even be a candidate for such a procedure.
A GoFundMe set up in April by Amanda’s friends has already reached $593,573 to help with medical costs which at the time ‘had already started coming in’ according to the description on the fundraising page.
She had also also revealed this week that she planned to refinance the couple’s LA home to pay for medical bills.
Before Nick got sick in March, the couple had recently moved from New York to Los Angeles so that the Broadway actor could star in Rock of Ages Hollywood.
Amanda and Nick wed in 2017 and are parents to their one-year-old son Elvis.
