Jason Mraz Records New 'Very Special Christmas' Song

Photo Courtesy - A&M Records(NEW YORK) -- Jason Mraz has cut his own version of the holiday classic "Winter Wonderland" as part of the ongoing A Very Special Christmas series of recordings.

The Very Special Christmas albums have been raising money for the Special Olympics since 1987, and over the years, they've featured artists ranging from U2, Bruce Springsteen, and Bon Jovi, to Sheryl Crow, Colbie Caillat, and Carrie Underwood.

Mraz's take on "Winter Wonderland" is now available for download on iTunes, and it's also been added as a bonus track on A Very Special Christmas Volume 7, which came out last year.  In a statement, Mraz said that as a kid, he purchased A Very Special Christmas albums, and he was "touched" that he was invited to take part in them now.

He says, "For me, Special Olympics is about embracing the abilities that we do have.  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 the same thing."
