Cajun musician and accordionist Jo-EL Sonnier brought some sunshine to one Louisiana woman for Valentine's Day. 

Sonnier writes in a Facebook post that he rode along with a friend and owner of Precious Memories Flower shop in Sulpher to deliver flowers to lucky ladies in the city. Sonnier brought along his accordion in hopes of playing a song to a sweet little lady. 

That sweet little lady turned out to be Mrs. Evalise of Sulphur who is 104 years old. Sonnier says in his post that she will be 105 in April.

The pair can be seen in a video posted to the singer's page, Sonnier playing Louisiana's state song "You Are My Sunshine," and Mrs. Evalise smiling along as he plays.

During the video, Mrs. Evalise waves off another man while Jo-EL sings, telling him that she doesn't want him to get jealous that Sonnier was singing directly to her. When asked by the person filming how young she is, Mrs. Evalise responds, "Old enough to know better, but too young to resist."

The post ends with a sentiment from Sonnier, "What a blessin' to put a smile on her face, but the real blessin' was all mine."
