ASTON VILLA star Kortney Hause is swapping his boots for a microphone to raise funds for the NHS.
The big-hearted defender has pledged the proceeds from his first solo single to help the fight against coronavirus.
Hause, 24, is a promising R&B artist and rapper in his spare time and is putting together his debut album under his stage name Korts.
He releases Worth It through streaming platform Spotify on Friday — and will give every penny to the NHS.
Hause said: “With this extra time most of us have and the situation we currently find ourselves in, I believe it is an ideal time to give something back and help support the real heroes that are NHS staff.
“I will be releasing Worth It and will be donating all the proceeds to our amazing NHS who are doing a truly remarkable service in these extremely difficult times. Hope you enjoy it.”
Hause was a YouTube hit in 2017 when he featured with fellow players Demarai Gray of Leicester and Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles on a video for the song Cheques with trip-hop group Alpha.
He added: “Music has been a passion of mine for many years. It is something I do to relax when I am away from my first love, football.”
Former Wolves ace Hause is one of the Prem stars who have clubbed together to hand out more than £4million to the NHS through the Players- Together fund.
Villa keeper Tom Heaton was also heavily involved in discussions with team-mates over donations.
Payments from the PlayersTogether fund began to reach hospitals across the country over the past week.
