Cape Town – Jesse Clegg performed with his father's band at the late South African icon's memorial service which was held in Johannesburg on Friday. 

The 30-year-old songwriter – who recently returned from America where he recorded his new single – sang his and father's song I've Been Looking.

Jesse was introduced by actor, John Kani who gave a touching tribute to Johnny who died earlier this month after a long battle with cancer.
