    Who is YOUR sunshine?

    The Whirlpool brand's "Every day, care" campaign honors the often unsung caregivers who keep families on track by doing the washing, cooking and cleaning. People often express their gratitude for these acts of care through music, which is why Whirlpool brand, along with country star Hunter Hayes, is inviting people around the country to record and dedicate their unique version of "You Are My Sunshine" as a tribute to a loved one.

    On February 8, one winner's extraordinary "Thank You" will air in a 30-second commercial in front of tens of millions of people.

    Wow! So YOUR version could be used in a commercial? Get on it!

    "Since my first performance at age four, my parents have given me unconditional care and support. It's because of this support that I'm living my dream," said Hayes. "I thank my parents in a lot of ways, often through my music, and I'm partnering with Whirlpool brand to give someone the opportunity to honor a loved one in a similar way."

    To enter the contest, individuals can record themselves singing, humming or playing "You Are My Sunshine," and then dedicate it to someone whose acts of care have played a vital role in their life. Finish by uploading the video to Whirlpool.com.

    You can submit a performance up until 11:59 PM on Sunday, January 25. Once submissions close, the winner will be chosen based on the following criteria: video quality, demonstration of care and performance of "You Are My Sunshine." The winning performance will air on February 8.

    You know what to do – so do it, sunshine!



    Did you show Whirlpool and Hunter Hayes your sunshine?
