Aston Villa left-back-turned-centre-back Kortney Hause has released a brand new single titled ‘Worth It’ that is available on all streaming platforms and able to purchase via Apple Music and other major providers.
All proceedings raised from sales and streams from Kortney, known as ‘Korts’ for his music, will be donated to the National Health Service for their work during the COVID-19 crisis.
The song, which showcases Kortney’s singing talent takes on a rhythm and blues style and explores love, money and more.
In a statement before the song’s release, Kortney said:
“Music has been a passion and a hobby of mine for many years, and it is something I do to relax when I am away from my first love, football
With this extra time that most of us now have, and the situation that we currently find ourselves in, I believe it is an ideal time to try and give something back and help support the real heroes that are NHS staff.”
Whilst many players are donating to honourable causes, and others, including ex-players like Gabriel Agbonlahor are raffling signed shirts and other memorabilia to try and raise money, Kortney has used other talents to both wisely spend his time, gain recognition for them, and raise money for the country’s greatest asset at the same time.
The defender, who has 11 appearances this season, has never been shy of his talents and has discussed his music with club media on a number of occasions, and it’s clear to see why with his latest song.
Speaking to TalkSport, Kortney said:
“I felt it was right for me to do my bit and help out.
I’ve always been influenced by my older brothers music-wise, it’s always been a big part of my life.
I’m a footballer first and foremost, but I have always wanted to release music and now felt like it had the right timing.”
