Few people realize that Keith Urban isn’t the only musical one in his family. His wife, actress Nicole Kidman, can also sing.
There is no greater demonstration of Kidman’s singing skills than the 2001 musical film, Moulin Rouge! Kidman plays a character named Satine, the star performer at the film’s namesake cabaret in Paris, France.
Kidman did her own singing throughout the film, showcasing her lovely voice to the world.
Years later, Kidman offered up her voice to one of her husband’s most meaningful projects. If you listen closely to Urban’s empowering song “Female,” you’ll hear what sounds like the voice of a woman singing in the background.
It turns out that voice you hear is Kidman’s and the song’s co-writer, Nicolle Galyon’s, blended together.
Although Kidman offered her voice to the track, fans knew the chances of her ever singing it on stage with Urban were unlikely. Though the notoriously private couple has performed together live in the past, the moments have been few and far between.
Kidman did famously join her husband in Nashville in 2018 to sing what was then one of his newest songs, “Parallel Lines.” Though she seemed hesitant at first, you could tell how at ease she felt singing with him.
As if that wasn’t cute enough, Kidman shared yet another rare duet between her and her husband.
In honor of the International Day of the Girl in 2018, the couple appropriately chose to share a snippet of them singing together on “Female.” This clip is notable, since it’s the first time anyone has ever watched them perform “Female” together.
Seated at a piano together, Urban plucks out the notes to the song and sings the melody. Instead of singing her harmony part, Kidman beautifully sings the melody along with him.

What makes things even more special is the fact that this clip was filmed by the couple’s two daughters, Sunday and Faith. How sweet!
The love that Kidman and Urban share for each other comes to life through his music, with many of his songs being about or inspired by her. One of those songs is “The Fighter,” which the couple lip-synced to in one of the most viral videos to hit country music in 2016.

Hopefully these two continue to sing together in the future. They make a great team.
