8 Questions: McMinnville's own 'We Three' band

We got to learn more about the siblings who make up the band, semi-finalists on AGT, as they release new music about mental health

PORTLAND, Ore. — The trio of siblings who made it to the semi finals of America's Got Talent a year ago stopped by the KGW studio to perform their new EP "WE'RE ALL MESSED UP... But it's OK." 

The band took on the theme of suicide and mental health with five songs they wrote themselves. Some of those were inspired by their fans, and the stories they shared with the band while on tour. 

 "We're so excited to hopefully be a voice for some people in this" says Manny Humlie, the youngest of the three told Cassidy Quinn on 'Tonight with Cassidy.' "It's definitely been good for us, it's been therapeutic for us, and so we hope that it's the same for other people."

'We Three' let us get to know them a little better, as they played along to our segment 8 questions.
