Very Special Christmas

Performers Various Artists

A&M | August 18, 2008 | Compact Disc

4 out of 5 rating. 1 Reviews
This first album in a special music series appeared in 1987 to redefine what a holiday record sounded like. Emerging in the thick of mid to late-'80s consciousness in rock, sales of A Very Special Christmas benefitted the Special Olympics. The collection ranged over broad musical territory. The Pointer Sisters kick off the disc with a rousing version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Later, Sting provides a dramatic, vocally harmonious song, "Gabriel's Message," which rap kings Run DMC follow with the superb "Christmas in Hollis." Christmas would never sound the same.
