That certainly is a slow song.
' "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" is a 1957 folk song written by British political singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger, who was later to become his wife. MacColl and Seeger included the song in their repertoire when performing in folk clubs around Britain. During the 1960s, it was recorded by various folk singers and became a major international hit for Roberta Flack in 1972.'-Wikipedia
The song entered the pop mainstream when it was released by The Kingston Trio on its 1962 hit album New Frontier and in 1966 by the The Brothers Four Subsequent recorded versions included those by The Smothers Brothers, Peter, Paul and Mary, The Chad Mitchell Trio, and others. Ewan MacColl himself made no secret of the fact that he disliked all of the cover versions of the song.-Wikipedia
69 or 70 other artists have recorded it.

Your voice when you speak sounds as if you could have been in broadcast radio.

AMAZING

Then I hear you sing and you truly have a wonderfully rich vocal tone.

This is the first time that I have had the privilege of listening to you sing.
You must have been told this upon numerous occassions but I AM also FLAGGING YOU AS A FAVORITE!

I love that you also took the melody into a new creative musical vision that was original and MUSICALLY BRILLIANT!

BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO
