A TUNEFUL duo have recorded a song to cheer on Aston Villa at tomorrow’s FA Cup semi-final

Ray Fullard and Althea Gaye - also known as the Octave Tinkling Twosome - penned Wembley Queen to mark their team’s second trip to the stadium this season.

The Hobs Moat pair recently recorded a rap to celebrate Villa reaching the League Cup Final.

But Martin O’Neill’s men lost out to Manchester Utd, so Ray and Althea are hoping that their song will bring better luck this time.

A music video, to accompany the new song, has been shot by Solihull-based Phil Millership.

Ray said: “The new video features Althea in her self-made Pearly Queen outfit, as well as her Villa rap gear.

“It has a Vauderville feel to it and it was a lot of fun to do.”

Ray and Althea will be travelling down to London, along with thousands of other Villa fans, to see their team take on Chelsea.

* The match will kick off at 5pm tomorrow (Saturday).
