Rebecca Shoichet (play /ʃɔɪˈkɛt/) is a voice actress and singer in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Her most prominent roles in the series are as Twilight Sparkle's singing voice and Sunset Shimmer in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls series.

Shoichet initially became involved with the series through her prior work with songwriter Daniel Ingram; she performed a number of song demos for him, including for the PBS animated series Martha Speaks.[1] During the show's casting phase, Shoichet was cast as Twilight Sparkle's singing voice after recording a demo for the series' theme song and because she sounded similar to Tara Strong, who provides Twilight's speaking voice.[2]

Shoichet has stated in an interview that, as mostly a singer for the series, she interacts little with the rest of the voice cast during recording sessions. However, this has changed since being cast as Sunset Shimmer.[3]

Shoichet's professional voice credits include Mayura Labatt in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Sota Higurashi in InuYasha (replacing Saffron Henderson), Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk in Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, Sedusa in Powerpuff Girls Z, Queen Lorelei in Barbie: The Pearl Princess, Spella in Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch, Apple Dumplin in Strawberry Shortcake's Berry Bitty Adventures, and various supporting characters in Kid vs. Kat.

In live-action, Shoichet had a guest role in two episodes of The CW's television series Arrow.[4] She has also performed music with Vancouver-based bands Soulstream, Side One, and Mimosa.

On the Friendship Games soundtrack, Shoichet's name is misspelled as "Rebecca Shiochet".
