There's no denying Jimmy Barnes' family is musically blessed.

And the Australian rocker is proving it once again by performing a beautiful rendition of Roberta Flack's 1972 hit 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' with his wife, Jane Barnes.

In the sweet clip, the loved-up pair can be seen sitting on the couch in their Thailand hotel room.


Alongside the video, Barnes wrote: "The first time ever I heard this song, it was in a movie called Play Misty for Me, it scared the hell outta me.

"I still love the song though. You have to agree that this is a Thai beach holiday love song."

Barnes and his wife are currently in Thailand while the musician recovers from the hip operation he had in December last year.

The country is where the couple went when they first met and have since returned every year.

Flack's slow and sensual version of 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' was used by Clint Eastwood in his 1971 directorial film debut, Play Misty for Me, during a love scene featuring Eastwood and actress Donna Mills.
