Choo-Choo Soul "With Genevieve"
July 14, 2013
Choo Choo Soul is a children's entertainment act composed of singer Genevieve Goings as a hip-hop train conductor and her partner, Constantine “DC” Abramson, a dancer and beatboxer dressed as a railroad engineer. Choo Choo Soul began as a collaboration between video game developer Greg Johnson, recording engineer and sound designer Burke Treischmann, and vocalist Genevieve Goings during dialogue recordings for ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth, the first Xbox installment of the ToeJam & Earl video game franchise. The act debuted in 2004 as a 16-track CD Baby studio album that described itself as "kids' music that won't drive parents crazy." In 2006, Walt Disney Records released Choo Choo Soul, and in 2007, “Choo-Choo Soul with Beautiful Genevieve!” was honored with a Parents’ Choice Award for children’s television. Choo Choo Soul has had a long relationship with Disney, who’s released several albums, including 2013’s Choo Choo Soul Disney Favorites, a collection of 12 recordings of classic Disney songs performed in the Choo Choo Soul style. .
