AllMusic Review by

The net proceeds from sales of this recording will be donated to the Children's Hearing Institute. That's about the only good thing to come from this hodge-podge. Bruce Springsteen weighs in with "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" and Vince Gill gives a sensitive reading of "Do You Hear What I Hear?" but those are pretty much the only high points. There's a sloppy Elton John, scary soul diva Patti Labelle with a typically overwrought "O Holy Night," and Willie Nelson's "Pretty Paper," mislabeled as "Blue Christmas." Ho ho ho? Hardly.
