Since 1987, the 'A Very Special Christmas' (AVSC) album series has literally changed lives by generating over $100 million in direct support for Special Olympics programs, thanks to the generosity of more than 130 top internationally acclaimed recording artists.
Born from the inspiration of author, model and lawyer Vicki Iovine and from the ingenuity of recording industry producers Jimmy Iovine, Bobby Shriver, Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, the AVSC series has enabled Special Olympics to flourish in developing nations bringing the joy of sport to millions of people with intellectual disabilities across the globe.
