KOURTNEY HAUSE says releasing his debut single today was as easy as ABC — and dreams of becoming the first footballer to have a solo UK No 1 hit one day.
The Aston Villa defender may rough-up a striker or two in his day job.

But you would never guess it, judging by the sweet sound of his voice on his R&B song “WORTH IT,” which is available to buy on Spotify today.
And the 24-year-old Londoner will be generously donating all the proceeds to the NHS.
It is a remarkable gesture which highlights the very best in his profession, even though music usually shows footballers at their worst!
The nation has cringed as Paul Gascoigne, Kevin Keegan, Glenn Hoddle and Chrissie Waddle picked up a microphone and should have been red-carded for brutally assaulting our eardrums over the years.
However Hause could break the mould, as the Villa ace can actually do the business on the park AND in the studio.
Hause told SunSport: “I come from a family of seven boys and we were brought up in a musical background.
We used to literally think we were the Jackson Five growing up — and I used to believe I was Michael Jackson!
“My older brothers used to listen to the likes of Michael Jackson, Usher and Chris Brown.
“We would join forces and sing together at family parties and stuff.
“We used to literally think we were the Jackson Five growing up — and I used to believe I was Michael Jackson!
“I love all types of music, whether it is rap or RnB, classical, indie or rock.
“I appreciate every genre of music, as long as it sounds good to me and has a vibe to it.
“I went down the RnB route because I just feel it suits the tone of my voice best. I’m the first member of my family to release a single.
“But my younger brother Rio is 20 and he is going to release some of his music soon.”
Hause joined Villa from Wolves for £3million in the summer, after helping them to promotion following a successful loan period and says his team-mates are among his biggest fans.
He added: “I’ve sent the full track to a few of them and all of them love it.
“I’m always singing in the changing room or even the gym while I’m working out.
“I appeared on a music video three years ago — for Alpha’s single Cheques, — along with Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Leicester’s Demarai Gray. I have known Ainsley since I was young and he wrote a song.
VILLA TEAM-MATES LOVE IT
“He knew I could sing a bit and said he wanted me on the chorus, on the hook. We recorded it and put it out on SoundCloud.
“It did OK and everyone was buzzing off it so he asked if we could do a video and I thought why not? I have got to express myself, you know!
“The idea for Worth It, came because I live with one of my good friends who is a music producer.
“He works with my younger brother Rio and he finds loads of instrumentals and great beats on YouTube and stuff.
“He’d play them to me whenever I could get in the studio and now, with everything going on with the coronavirus, I had a bit more time on my hands.
“He rounded up a few beats and the ‘Worth It,’ instrumental was just something I took to.
