Jason Mraz records ‘Winter Wonderland’ for ‘A Very Special Christmas’

HollywoodNews.com: Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Jason Mraz is the latest artist to record a track for “A Very Special Christmas,” which is benefitting the Special Olympics. His recording of “Winter Wonderland” will be available on iTunes for the first time in the U.S. starting today.

The track will also be offered as a bonus to the purchase of 2009’s acclaimed “A Very Special Christmas Volume 7,” featuring young superstars Colbie Caillat, Carter Twins, Charice, Miley Cyrus, Kristinia DeBarge, Gloriana, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean Kingston, Leighton Meester, Mitchel Musso, Kellie Pickler, Ashley Tisdale and Carrie Underwood.

Mraz, who grew up listening to classic Christmas recordings by Bing Crosby, Perry Como and the like, remembers the A Very Special Christmas series. “I noticed the Keith Haring album covers when I first started buying cds, and I had them in my collection. Wanting to be an artist that contributes, I was touched that I was asked to take part.

“For me Special Olympics is about embracing the abilities that we do have,” he explained. “It’s the same thing I do with my concerts. I just want to shift the attention back to love and joy and happiness in this now moment, and I really get that Special Olympics does that same thing.”

“We are so grateful to the many artists who have contributed to the success of this A Very Special Christmas series,” shared Tim Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman and CEO. “Not only has this music brought joy to the many listeners and fans, but it has brought hope to millions of athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the world by providing them sports opportunities they never would have imagined.”
