As an actress she often gets roles that require her to portray or mimic Oprah Winfrey, so much so she was asked to narrate one of Oprah’s Biographies for (Website hidden) – BUT don’t ask her to do anymore – she loves doing voiceovers but NOT audiobooks! One of Bobbi's favorite voice-over sessions however was voicing "Female Worgen Vendor" for Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft - "Cataclysm" And although she’s African American, her voice is clearly NON-Urban, in fact it’s quite Polished, Powerful & Professional – an Educated Sound.
