Live Your Life: Amanda and Anna Kloots in Conversation with Rabbi Steve Leder

Amanda and Anna Kloots and Rabbi Steve Leder

Join The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and her sister and co-author Anna Kloots in an intimate conversation with Rabbi Steve Leder about Amanda’s new memoir, Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero.

A beloved Broadway star and Tony nominee, Nick’s public battle with COVID-19 and tragic death in 2020 made headlines around the world and was poignantly chronicled by his wife Amanda on social media, as she stayed strong for him and for their infant son, Elvis. Her updates on Nick’s condition quickly went viral, inspiring millions around the world to gather virtually every day at 3 pm PST to offer prayers and to sing and dance to Nick’s original song “Live Your Life.”

Amanda shared some words about her experience when she joined us in March in conversation with Rabbi Steve Leder about his bestselling meditation on loss, resilience and love, The Beauty of What Remains. Their wise, gentle, powerful talk prompted an extraordinary response from viewers. Now Amanda opens up about her own deeply personal story of love and loss, from the beautiful relationship she shared with Nick, its tragic interruption and months of hope and heartbreak, and of the optimism and faith that have shaped her life and ultimately pulled her through. Amanda’s story is her own, but her message – and Nick’s – to “live your life like/you’ve got one night” is one of courage and inspiration for us all.
