EX-OFFICIAL TO PUT SUNSHINE IN HIS 95TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

The sun has set on his political career, but it still shines on the man once known as the singing governor, Jimmie Davis.

Davis, who turned 95 on Sept. 11, says he'll perform his trademark song, "You Are My Sunshine," at his birthday bash in Baton Rouge, La., Friday."People expect me to act dignified when I perform because I'm a former governor, but I'll give it the works," he said. "I don't act like a former governor when I'm performing - I get loose."
