A Very Special Christmas 2 is a collection to benefit Special Olympics with honest Christmas sentiment (Tevin Campbell soaring soulfully on ”O Holy Night”), pure fun (Ronnie Spector and Darlene Love cracking their bubble gum on ”Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”), and blends of both (Luther Vandross tickling the chestnuts in ”The Christmas Song”). Oops, here comes Debbie Gibson, flashing a painted smile in ”Sleigh Ride,” but isn’t commerce part of Christmas too? B+
