For more than a decade, the "A Very Special Christmas" CD series has raised millions of dollars for Special Olympics charities worldwide.
This year, the latest "Very Special" album, "A Very Special Christmas 4: Live From Washington, D.C.," will be hitting stores on October 19.
Included on the album will be live versions of holiday songs, many of which have appeared on past "A Very Special Christmas" compilations, including Run-DMC's "Christmas In Hollis" and Jon Bon Jovi's "Please Come Home For Christmas." Also included is one non-Christmas song, Tracy Chapman's "Give Me One Reason," featuring Eric Clapton.
All of the songs were recorded at a fundraiser for the Special Olympics at the White House on December 17 of last year, at an event hosted by President Clinton and the first lady.
