â€œIn this day and age of so much uncertainty, stress and anxiety, I thought it would be good to relax and let the world go away for a few short songs,â€ explains Tony Wray. â€œDisney has always been a huge part of my life not only as a child but as an adult, the timeless songs Disney put with their movies has always been comforting to me, I just wanted to extend that comfort to the public, in hopes they enjoy and get sent back to their childhood if not for just a few minutes.â€
