Fans of the late Broadway star Nick Cordero will be able to hear his voice and honor him with his final album, "Live Your Life."
The album is a live recording of a one-man show he performed, and will be posthumously released on September 17; his birthday.
Cordero, 41, died from complications related to COVID-19 earlier this month.
His wife, celebrity fitness trainer Amanda Kloots, unveiled the album on Wednesday and said the recording was taken from Cordero's one-man show at the New York City cabaret Feinstein's/54 Below in April 2019.
"Nick would be absolutely thrilled to hear this news," announced Kloots before promising that the album will be nothing short of magical. "I’ve never seen my husband work so hard on something and be so nervous to perform. I was so proud of him and absolutely loved watching him onstage these two nights."
She said Cordero's performance was a true work of passion. "He created this show from scratch, choosing songs to tell a story ... his story,"
"There’s some Broadway tunes with fun guest stars, some pop, standards, a little Latin and of course the encore is 'Live Your Life'," she said.
The album, which is available for preorder now, will drop on what would have been Cordero's 42nd birthday.
Cordero was hospitalized in late March and, shortly after, was placed on a ventilator and fell into a coma. He suffered a series of lung infections and also had one of his legs amputated. He battled COVID-19 complications for nearly 100 days before succumbing to the virus on July 5.
Besides Kloots, whom he married in 2017, he left behind their son, 1-year-old Elvis. Proceeds from the album sales will benefit the family.
