For that matter, she spread some "Sunshine" his way, too.
Mayo and her husband, John, appear in Azar's Internet video, which also features their sons, Andy Mayo and the late Barry Mayo.
"We found out they wanted photos to use in the video," said Mayo, an Ingomar resident.
The video features photographs of people with the "sunshines" in their lives.
The Mayos' photo was taken at a park in downtown Ecru on the day a photo of Barry Mayo was installed at a pavilion to honor fallen soldiers.
"Barry was killed in Iraq in 2007," she said. "He had just turned 21."
Azar and Jason Young wrote the song, which includes these lyrics:
"Baby, you're my sunshine,
"Everybody needs a little sunshine.
"Yeah, you're my sunshine,
"'Cause like the dawn you push it all away."
You can find two different versions of the video by doing a YouTube.com search for "Steve Azar Sunshine." The Mayos are featured on the version that was posted on April 13.
Azar's brother, Fred Azar, is a Mayo family physician, and he let them know about the opportunity.
After they sent a photo to the singer, they got a note thanking them for their help.
"I love the song. It's a beautiful song," Mayo said. "I'm just excited to be part of it. Maybe more people will hear the song now."
