Saturday night, the Box Garden Theater at Legacy Hall in Plano was transformed into a magical realm where Disney classics from the ’90s came to life.

The Dallas music group We Them Grays, comprised of the talented siblings Kierra Gray, KJ Gray and Kwinton Gray, once again enchanted audiences with the return of their Disney concert.

Since 2018, this musical trio has been celebrating the unforgettable melodies of Disney’s golden era, and this year’s installment was a testament to the power of music to bring generations together.

“The inspiration came from our musical origins as homeschooled siblings,” Kwinton Gray responded in an email interview. “We taught ourselves how to play by learning our favorite song from television and film. It definitely brought us closer, tapping into our childhood foundation and just building from that genuine love for music and each other.”

As for their favorite songs from the setlist, Kwinton noted, “I wish we could pick our favorite songs; the entire setlist is composed of all our favorite songs.”

The setlist featured enchanting tunes from classics such as The Lion King, Toy Story, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Hercules, The Emperorโ€™s New Groove, The Jungle Book, Moana, and more.
