Ex-Louisiana Gov. Jimmie Davis entertained guests at his 100th birthday party by singing the hit tune he co-wrote, "You Are My Sunshine."

Bent and frail, Davis made his way to the stage slowly on Friday, then got everyone up on their feet and clapping during a four-song performance, proving the former country-western and gospel singer can still enthrall an audience.

About 800 attended the $100-per-person birthday party. Proceeds will help finance the Jimmie Davis Tabernacle, a nondenominational church in his native Jackson Parish.
