4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Special Christmas Review December 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: Bethlehem Skies (Dara MacLean & Dave Barnes), I Believe (Natalie Grant), Christmas Together (Jamie Grace)

You can always count on the compilers of "A Very Special Christmas" to come up with a red carpeted roll call of who's who in the music industry. Ever since its genesis in 1987, nine compilations have surfaced under the patent "A Very Special Christmas." With each opus seasonal renderings have been garnered from huge superstars such as Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Stevie Nicks, U2, Mary J. Blige, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood among others. This whole project started off as the brainchild of record producer and chairman of Interscope-Geffen-A&M records Jimmy Lovine. And at the behest of his wife proceeds from this endeavor have been given to the Special Olympics. Over the years these records have raised $100 million with the first compilation (understandably with Whitney Houston and Madonna on the same record) selling over 4 million copies. Fast forward to 2012, for the first time, these enterprising philanthropists have partnered with Word record to release a contemporary Christian version of "A Very Special Christmas." Instead of harboring cuts from established acts (such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith and Steve Green), they have decided to cast the nets to the emerging, current and younger crop from the genre; artists such as For King and Country, Jason Castro, Sidewalk Prophet and Group 1 Crew. Save for Natalie Grant, Big Daddy Weave, Mark Schultz, BarlowGirl and Point of Grace, many of these performers are still pretty new on the block; each with only a couple or fewer albums under their belts. Such an approach is certainly rewarded with a palatable and a much more youthful sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Special Christmas: Bringing Peace On Earth October 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD
A Very Special Christmas is the single most successful benefit recording series in musical history, generating more than $100 million in royalties to benefit Special Olympics. The series is the largest single source of funding for Special Olympics and its athletes. As "A Very Special Christmas" celebrates its 25th year, Word Records is proud to present the first-ever Christian Market version in the "A Very Special Christmas" series, entitled Bringing Peace On Earth. There are a lot of choices when it comes to Christmas music. This year more than ever, I felt a bit overwhelmed when I started to listen to various takes of classic Christmas songs like "Joy To The World," "Away In A Manger" and "Silent Night." Thankfully, as much as I love those songs, they don't appear on this excellent compilation.

Every song is a highlight for me especially the original Christmas songs by Sidewalk Prophets, Dara Maclean, Chris August and Meredith Andrews. There are also spectacular renditions of "O Holy Night" by Group 1 Crew, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" by Francesca Battistelli and "O Come All Ye Faithful" by Big Daddy Weave. There are three original songs that stop me in my tracks, "Bethlehem Skies" by Dara Maclean feat. Dave Barnes, "Jesus, Savior" by Chris August and "He Has Come For Us" which is an amazing medley with "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Meredith Andrews. I get goose bumps when I sing along with Meredith at the top of my lungs, this song "He Has Come For Us" is incredibly powerful and proclaims the biblical Truth of Christmas.
