She is also an accomplished singer.
In the review of Sonic Free Riders by IGN they had praised the new voices especially Tails' saying that he finally sounds like a boy. While some praise this new voice, others believe Kate is focusing more on having a husky, boy sound for Tails, than actually acting the part.
