Founder, Ice cream songs


Lionel Jean Baptiste is a native of Evanston, Illinois. The first of the Jean Baptiste family to be born on American soil, the rhythm of his Haitian roots can be felt in every note of his music. Lionel holds a B.A. degree from Lincoln University in PA, where he majored in business and minored in music performance. He currently works as a substitute teacher with L.A. Unified Schools and is pursuing his music in LA. "Music has always been a big part of my family life and church experience. I studied piano, drums, and guitar while growing up. My father is a musician. I began my career in children's music by working at a childcare center in my hometown of Evanston. I was the after school teacher, but part of my duties during the day was to go to each room with my guitar and sing songs with the younger kids. I moved to Southern California in 2000, and 'Ice Cream Songs' was born." 

Since its inception in 2000, Ice Cream Songs has developed a loyal following throughout California and the nation-thanks to the launch of the official website, Due to huge demand, Lionel created several follow up CDs including “Multiplication Raps”, “Ice Cream Christmas CD”, and Reggae Church”. 

In 2005, The Itsy Bitsy Reggae Spider was featured in film "“Two for the Money"” starring Al Pacino. “"Ice Cream Song"” was also added to Delta Airline's’ in-flight children'’s music station.

I’m a teacher here in Venice. I bought this CD for my grandson and at age 5, he’s learned all of his multiplication tables!
This is an awesome CD! I home school my girls and they’ve ended up learning off of this. We listen to it all the time.
