Nick Cordero, the actor who spent more than 90 days in a hospital fighting for his life after contracting the coronavirus, will have an album released posthumously.

Sadly, the Broadway actor passed away on July 5 following a courageous battle with COVID-19.

His right leg had been amputated in April due to complications from the virus.

Broadway Records said Wednesday it will release “Nick Cordero: Live Your Life” on Sept. 17 — what would have been his 42nd birthday.

Cordero’s album is named after one of his songs and captures his cabaret performance in April 2019 at the Broadway supper club Feinstein’s/54 Below.

Cordero was in many stage productions, including “Bullets Over Broadway” in New York, which earned him a Tony Award nomination.

His wife, dancer and personal trainer Amanda Kloots, said she’d never seen Cordero work as hard on something as he did on his cabaret show.

“I was so proud of him and absolutely loved watching him onstage these two nights,” she said Wednesday in a post on Instagram.

“He created this show from scratch, choosing songs to tell a story … his story.”

Guest performers on the album include Kathryn Gallagher, Drew Gehling, Sara Chase and Zach Braff.

Proceeds will go to benefit Kloots and their 1-year-old son, Elvis.

Kloots described the album line-up as “Broadway tunes with fun guest stars, some pop, standards, a little Latin and, of course, the encore is ‘Live Your Life,’” the song many covered while Cordero was in the hospital.
